URL:Mal Popup for process C:\Windows\SysWOW64\rundll32.exe
« on: February 18, 2014, 07:32:56 PM »
Hi, I just got the following popup warning from avast:

Object: http://download.newnext.me/spark.bin?rnd=1409822566
Infection: URL:Mal
Process: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\rundll32.exe

The alarm popped up about 50 times during the last half our, than suddenly stopped. I suppose it is a false positive; about 12 hours ago everything was all right; last full scan was last Friday and I did not download anything since then.

Other people in the forum seem to post the same problem.

Mobogenie is now history :)

In that case methinks I will send you on your merry way :)

Subject to no further problems   :)

I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but, I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems 

Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean  :thumbsup:

A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset  System Restore points:

Download and run Delfix




Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programmes:

CryptoPrevent install this programme to lock down and prevent crypto ransome ware



Malwarebytes.

Update and run weekly to keep your system clean


It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read our little guide  How did I get infected in the first place ?Keep safe  :wave:

Almost twenty--four hours later, and still no popups.

Thanks again for your quick helf

Mobogenie is defeated, I'd say. Or to quote Master Yoda: "At an end your rule is, and not short enought it was!"  8)
