removal of malware
« on: November 27, 2014, 07:36:39 PM »
I have avast premium. My google browser has been hijacked by Volstran malware. I performed a scan and the scan did not pick up the Volstran. How do I remove this malware- and how did it get there to begin with? since avast was already on the computer?

This needs further analysis by a malware removal specialist:
Go to this topic for information on Logs to assist in cleaning malware. Use the information about getting and using the tools. Start your own new topic in the Viruses and Worms forum and attach the logs there, not in the LOGS topic.
