    Malware removal


    Hello. I am running Windows 10. I had a pop up take over my screen while online, using Firefox. It started talking to me and telling me I was under attack, etc. Figured it was ransomware and shut down pc immediately. I have run scans using Defender, AVG, Avast, Spybot, and Malwarebytes. Nothing comes up. But I continue to get notifications from Defender saying "Unauthorized changes blocked. Controlled folder access blocked." I can't figure out how to find and remove whatever this is. Any ideas?

    :)

  2. Best way to remove problem Malware

    Hi There,

    I am trying to remove a bundle of Malware without success.

    There is a bundle of listed programs which I try to uninstall through the typical Control Panel effort, but they remain listed there:

    Buenosearch Toolbar
    MyPC Backup
    PC Performer
    Speed Test 127
    UnknownFile

    I was looking at this weblink which provides a 5 step process for Buenosearch alone:
    http://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-bueno-search/

    Not sure how much certain guides can be trusted. One of the first things I read was to download Revo Uninstaller, and I've not heard of it so I'm not sure if it's trustworthy..........

  3. removal of sidecubes malware

    Do not get SpyHunter. It's just as bad as the malware you have,

    Follow the steps here.

    If it is not listed in the Control Panel, or it can't be removed there, move on to step 2. HitmanPro might not be needed.

    Malware removal


    Understood, OldMike. I will keep your suggestion in mind. I always appreciate suggestions from those who know more than I do. I think the Malware did do more than one scan, because I had to approve removal of what it found twice. I don't see Windows Defender on the list of programs. I think it was on there before they redid the software. Pluto TV also disappeared.
