Do as DavidR suggests, his recommendation is a sound one.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Did a Malwarebytes scan and problem seems to be gone.

Don't worry essexboy cleans up after himself.
But if you happen to have a time delay backdoor trojan and it gets
loose on your machine...well, you know.

Better safe than sorry.

How would I get essexboy to take a look?
(I'm only 16, I'm the only guy in the family who cares about computer safety). And I'm quite nervous about getting someone else in another country to take a look at my computer.

Just some scans. They do not release any private info unless your Username contains your Actual Name.

In most cases posting here releases more info as (some (Ubers, Mods/Admins/Avast! Team) can see your IP)...

If you wish, I can post the same logs from one of my system(s). You can get the tools from this site: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=53253.0

You'll also notice if you visit the V&W section, Essexboy leads most of the cases, and most are usually resolved unless there is a hardware issue. I've trusted him before and he has never not once let me down.

(You can also find him on a bunch of other sites like geekstogo.com/forum/
SOC Tier II Analyst - Malware Analysis; Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR); Fortinet Firewall Management; Pentest

Personal security is a mindset, not an application. Think before clicking.

Well, it's 17:44 here atm. I could let him do the scans tomorrow, but he would have to be able to do them before 16:00 my time.

Tom you need to do the scans from the link above and provide/attach the logs for essexboy to look over when he is available and if there is an issue he can provide a fix.

You have already run Malwarebytes so you only need to run Farbar as DavidR mentioned on the previous page.

Can I delete Farbar after I used it? Or shouldn't I?
I'll do it tomorrow.

Farbar is the only thing I'll have to do, right?

Just run the tool and attach the logs as requested, don't delete the tool as essexboy will clean that up for you when he's completed.

What do you mean with cleaning up?
Pardon my ignorance by the way.

Meaning that after cleaning your system of infections "if needed" he will clean up "remove" the tools you download from the system leaving it nice and clean.

Please calm down. Anything essexboy suggests/directs you to do is for your benefit.
He will never, ever ask you to do something which could/would compromise you or your
system. Just post the logs as requested and he will take it from there. You will be in the
safest hands possible. And he has endless patience so don't be afraid to ask him any
question if you are not sure of anything.

I have notified essexboy so post your logs as requested.
