    I Have Been Infected with www.Y2MATE.com


    My laptop is infected with Y2MATE.COM. I have tried to run my Noton antiviruse program and also Microsoft Safety Scan. Neither one of these tools detect it or fix it. Searching the WEB I find several solutions and a lot of garbage about how to get rid of it. Most do a scan then want to charge to fix it. Some of the instructions are not valid from my WIndows 10 system. Anyone in the community have a good answer to help me get rid of it? Thanks.

    Hi:

    There is no one set of "boilerplate", "cookbook" or standard steps.
    Each computer is unique.
    Each malware infection is unique.
    Proper diagnosis, cleanup and repair depends on the particular infection and the system that is infected.
    The process can be tedious and time-consuming, often requiring the use of multiple powerful tools, in the proper sequence.
    Many of them can actually damage the system if deployed improperly by untrained computer users.

    Bottom line:
    Malware cleanup is best done with *customized* support provided by trained individuals who know what tools to use and how to use them.

    There are a few folks with such expertise here at this forum (I am not one of them).
    And there are a number of reputable computer disinfection fora where trained malware removal experts provide free, custom assistance.

    Cheers,

    clean possibly infected flash drives and CD-RWs

    Your steps in post #1 should work for 99% of viruses that may be on a usb flash drive. However, there are a very few viruses that can infect the MBR of a drive. I would use Diskpart from a command prompt (Admin) to clean them. In the command prompt type DISKPART then, at the Diskpart prompt use the commands:

    LIST DISKnote the disk number of the usb and use it in place of # in the command:SELECT DISK #
    CLEAN
    CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY

    After this you will have cleaned the partition table from the usb and created a partition using the whole of the the available space. You can then format this partition in File Explorer.


    For a CD-RW, if you right-click on it in File Explorer there is an Erase option.
