Exception Code
« on: February 14, 2014, 05:54:39 PM »
Wondering if anyone can help me out. I've been having issues with my laptop for a couple months now. Website pages load very slow or don't load at all, some pictures/links/articles, etc will partially load, when I open any program it opens slower than normal. At 1st I thought this was an internet issue but then I started getting this pop up every so often, see attachment. This started after I installed Avast but I have no clue if it has anything to do with it or not. I have done scan after scan, full scan, boot scan, at the suggestion of a friend I scanned with Malware Bytes and installed another program in the hopes that if it's a virus and one program didn't catch it, the other would. I don't know too much about computers so I have no clue on what else can be done. I am so frustrated with this that I am ready to throw this laptop off my balcony so any help would be appreciated  :-\

If you think you are infected, make a topic on the viruses and worms board:

http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=53253.0

Before that, I'd try a clean install of avast!

1. Download Avastclear, Rejzors uninstall tool and the appropriate Avast program edition

Note: It's important you used the stub online installer from the one I linked.. NOT the offline one.

Note: You need to be ONLINE during this install (online installer works in all cases whereas offline sometimes doesn't)

Avastclear : http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avastclear.exe
Rejzors Uninstall tool: http://rejzor.wordpress.com/avast-cleanup-tool/

2. Uninstall Avast by control panel  [If you don't have Avast in control Panel go to #4]
3. Uninstall in safe mode using Avastclear.
4. Run Rejzors Uninstall Utility in Normal Mode (removes traces avastclear doesn't) - reboot.
Check : Once uninstalled check in device manager>view>show hidden devices if there is anything related to avast with a yellow triangle.. if so, uninstall it and reboot.
5. Install the version you downloaded.
6. Reboot.

You may want to use Opera instead of your usual browser to visit the pages/get the tools needed:

That appears to be search protection an adware toolbar or its ilk.  I would recommend removal using adwcleaner

 Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Scan.
  • After the scan is complete click on "Clean"
  • Confirm each time with Ok.
  • Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
  • Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.

So I have 3 suggestions on what to do, which are appreciated but what's the easiest way, not sure which one to try  ??? ... Is this a virus? (Attached is another picture which I meant to attach with the original post and is of the 1st pop up, then it switched to the other one)
