Adware problem

How can I get rid of start.sweetpacks.com? I reinstalled Secunia yesterday due to some issues. I used the bad download and let him install some United Nations wanted to free software. I wasn't watching close enough to stop these free programs until it is too late. Now, I start.sweetpacks.com with my FF browser. This forum can help me or should I go somewhere else. I learned the hard way to monitor these bad programs when you use the links at the bottom of the load a program. Could you give me the link to download Secunia PSI. I have windows 8 os.

The PSI link is http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal/

I'm not familiar with sweetpacks , so I can't comment on that.   Maybe someone else (Bugbatter, Joe, RedDawn or Iroc) can she?   If this isn't the case, you can still register for SpywareHammer.com one-we-we help.

  • Continuing to malware / adware problem

    Hello

    I have finally upgraded to El Capitan at last week. I had no problem until today when I downloaded a new Java Update, which I think may have also installed some sort of adware / malware on my system. Since the installation of new advertising tabs open (on both Firefox and Safari) when I click on some normal links on some sites. I also see underlined green links ad on some pages.

    I tried all the tips I can find online, including of Malwarebytes, Avast, reinstall browsers, try a new user, follow the instructions to remove "DownLite" etc. I also checked the LaunchAgent and LaunchDaemons folders in my library, and they seem to be something unusual.

    Any help with this would be much appreciated because it becomes extremely frustrating Apple have advised me to reinstall OS X, but I would try other options first as it may seem a bit drastic!

    Thank you very much

    Tomai

    You may have installed ad-injecting malicious software ("adware").

    Do not use any type of product, "anti-virus" or "anti-malware" on a Mac. You have already seen that it does not work.

    Save all data first.

    If you are not already running the latest version of Mac OS X, update or upgrade in the App Store you risk adware remove automatically. If you are already using the latest version, please log off or restart the computer. Still, some types of malware will be deleted, not all. There is no such thing as the automatic removal of all possible malware, either by OS X third party software. That's why you can't rely on software to protect you.

    If the malware is deleted in your case, you will still need to make changes to the way you use your computer to protect you from new attacks. Ask if you need advice.

    If the malware is not removed automatically, see below.

    This simple procedure to detect any type of adware that I know. Disabling is a procedure distinct and better still.

    Some legitimate software is funded by advertising and may display advertisements in its own windows or in a web browser while it is running. It's not malware and it may not appear. In addition, some Web sites display advertising intrusive popup that can be confused with adware.

    If none of your web browsers work well enough to carry out these instructions, restart the computer in safe mode. The malware will be disabled temporarily.

    Step 1

    Please triple - click on the line below on this page to select it, and then copy the text to the Clipboard by pressing Control-C key combination:

    ~/Library/LaunchAgents

    In the Finder, select

    Go ▹ go to the folder...

    from the menu bar and paste it into the box that opens by pressing command + v press return. Open a folder named "LaunchAgents", or you will get a notice stating that the file cannot be found. If the file is not found, proceed to the next step.

    If the folder opens, press the combination of keys command-2 to select the display of the list, if it is not already selected. Please don't skip this step.

    There should be a column in the update Finder window. Click this title two times to sort the content by date with the most recent at the top. If necessary, enlarge the window so that all the content show.

    Follow the instructions in this support article under the heading "take a screenshot of a window." An image file with a name starting in 'Screenshot' should be saved to the desktop. Open the capture screen and make sure it is readable. If this isn't the case, capture a small part of the screen indicating that what needs to be shown.

    Start a reply to this message. Drag the image file in the editing window downloading. Alternatively, you can include text in the response.

    Leave the case open for now.

    Step 2

    Do as in step 1 with this line:

    /Library/LaunchAgents

    The record which can open up will have the same name but is not the same as in step 1. In this step, the folder does not exist.

    Step 3

    Repeat with this line:

    /Library/LaunchDaemons

    This time the file will be called "LaunchDaemons."

    Step 4

    Open Safari preferences window and select the tab 'Extensions'. If the extensions are listed, post a screenshot. If there are no extensions, or if you cannot launch Safari, skip this step.

    Step 5

    If you use Firefox or Chrome browser, open the list of extensions and do as in step 4.

  • Redirection Adware problem

    I am new user of MacBook (less than 24 hours) and already makes it painful to use because someone told me there is no virus for Mac, I was carelessly downloading of programs and I am here... My browsers (Chrome and Safari) are double tabs, we repeat just what is already open, and a other advertising. Also, I got pop ups and ads around some sites like imdb or other trusted sites. Now it's better, maybe because I've done a few things to try to remove this, but the redirect is still a huge problem. Here is the results of my diagnosis, I hope someone can help

  • Why update firefox and got a 'free' bing search bar and two software malicious adware?

    After an automatic update - no, I do not download no matter what new version of any dangerous place - I found that I had the Bing search bar-which I think I've turned it off, not sure if - and two malware/adware problems. First was rvzr - a.akamaihd which arises a new tab when clicking first on a website, then I found that I had offerswizard adding banners - blocked most of them - and the creation of hiperlinks with mini pop ups when passed above it with the mouse - sorry if my English is not clear. I tried AVG free and there wasn't any warning. Finally, ad-block and rgiht, click on the arrow to search bing seems to fix the problem, however, offerswizard must be uninstalled manually - lightning enhance program, I think that - after a google search.
    The main question is... can I trust firefox download/upgrade to automatic update?

    Thank you all for your answers. I tried to mark it as resolved, but I doubt that I did.

    First I tried in windows / removal of unwanted software programs. Installed an adblocker for FF
    Then I downloaded the adware 3.8 removal tool and the problem is almost solved. Still a few details could be improved, but I can live with that.

    I think someone took advantage of the installation of FF and it makes any other malware on my computer.

    Thank you once again.

  • Firefox does not open from the desktop icons

    Hi guys: were adware problem by resetting firefox market and stop for 12 months. Now I virtue open in the... Task Manager shortcut icons / start bar will not work. Any advice much appreciated

    Hello

    Try Firefox Safe mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe mode is a troubleshooting mode that temporarily disables hardware acceleration, restores some settings and disables add-ons (extensions and themes).

    If Firefox is open, you can restart Firefox Safe mode in the Help menu:

    • In Firefox 29,0 and above, click on the menu button

      click Help

      then select restart with disabled modules.

    • In previous versions of Firefox, click on the Firefox button in the upper left of the Firefox window and click help (or click on help in the Menu bar, if you do not have a Firefox button) and click on restart with disabled modules.

    If Firefox is not running, you can start Firefox in Mode safe mode as follows:

    • On Windows: Hold down the SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
    • On Mac: Hold the option key during the startup of Firefox.
    • On Linux: Exit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox-safe-mode
      (you may need to specify the installation path of Firefox for example/usr/lib/firefox)

    When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "start mode safe."

    If the problem is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, theme or hardware acceleration. Please follow the steps described in the section Troubleshooting extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common Firefox problems to find the cause.

    To exit safe mode of Firefox, simply close Firefox and wait a few seconds before you open Firefox for normal use again.

    When find you what is causing your problems, please let us know. This might help others with the same problem.

  • get rid of all the adds, search machine of default on the current version of firefox (31.0)

Now, how can I get rid of this "new version" of Firefox and how do I get rid of this 'iStart123' and all that those of unwanted adds?

  • When I open a new tab, the address box filled with an unwanted, unused address, it don't go there, I don't want filled automatically, how to fix?

    Whenever I open a new tab in Firefox, this address is the address bar: chrome://quick_start/content/index.html. Now, I have nothing against it, but I can't seem to get rid of it. I went to my settings and Add ons and it does not work. Tried to see if I could find somewhere in my internet settings on my computer control panel. I just had someone delete some serious virus and adware problems with my computer and I don't know that they put that in there. How to stop? If I call the place that fixed, they will probably charge me for fixing when it should be an easy fix.

    The page don't will NOT LOAD, it fills just the bar of address, and if I hit enter and then it loads... help please.

    Thank you very much.

    Do you already have an add-on named QuickStart? Maybe he leaves it behind.

    There is a parameter hidden what appears on new tabs, which you can modify as follows:

    (1) in a new tab, type or paste Subject: config in the address bar and press ENTER. Click on the button promising to be careful.

    (2) in the search above the list box, type or paste newtab and make a pause so that the list is filtered

    (3) double-click the preference browser.newtab.url and enter your favorite page:

    • (Default) page thumbnails = > subject: newtab
    • Blank tab = > subject: empty
    • Built-in Firefox homepage = > topic: welcome
    • Any other page = > full URL of the page

    Press Ctrl + t to open a new tab and check that it worked.

  • Deal with problems adware and internet...

    Hello

    When I started my macbook yesterday, I discovered that my mac is (still) infected with adware. When I open google chrome I was met with 'You'll find' as my browser and adds everywhere. The problem with the browser is not so difficult to solve, to rummage in the settings. But the adds are much harder to remove.

    The problems are the following:

    -Add all "Top case".

    -some randome words in Web pages are highlighted and are also, adds if you hover over them you get add mackeeper and other unnecessary things

    -When I was looking on the web for a solution I discovered something strange, something that makes the difference for the rest of my case I guess. Some pages are blocked. Chrome tells me that 'the site cannot be reached"and" (example) has refused to connect. Images not loading not either. Another example, if I want to update via the app store says that "the server is not reachable.

    This problem of internet started since I discovered the virus add so I think they are related.

    I have tried several reboots, deleted all data in chrome and BitDefender to scan my mac everything on viruses. None of this worked, I've always had...

    I'm on OSX Yosemite 10.10.5 incidentally.

    Please help me, I hate this.

    Kind regards

    Stig W.

    < personal information under the direction of the host >

    BitDefender is useless, you can uninstall it.

  • After wiping adware Macbook problems?

    Two of my installed browsers (Safari & Firefox) were diverted by Trovi and I followed these steps http://https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7407316

    Everything seemed okay for about a half hour, then I go to my home page and see this:

    This happens on both browsers now and even more strange, some bookmarks send this message but others don't and will connect very well! My internet connection is running. I checked the other devices and they are OK.

    I wonder, can I clear my Mac and OS and install a backup I have? Or will the adware and other nasties still exist now? I know Trovi is an adware just, but I'm paranoid enough now because he had misappropriated credit card data settings to automatically fill. I think that my Mac picked up more than just Trovi since I found something called "Elsa", more a few other weird extension. Don't know if it helps, but this all started because my son has tried to download music a bit torrent site and installed what is called "Niceplayer."

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    Please read this message before doing anything.

    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It is unlikely to solve your problem. Don't be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.

    The test is intended to determine if the problem is caused by a third-party software that loads automatically at startup or logon, by a device, by a police conflict or corruption of system files or some system caches.

    Disconnect all devices wired except those required to test and remove all the expansion cards from secondary market, as appropriate. Start in safe mode and log on to the account of the problem.

    Note: If FileVault is enabled in OS X 10.9 or an earlier version, or if a firmware password is defined, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can not do this. Ask for additional instructions.

    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run as normal, with limited graphics performance, and some things work at all, including an audio output and a Wi - Fi connection on some models. The next normal boot can also be a bit slow.

    The login screen is displayed even if you usually connect automatically. You need your password to log on. If you have forgotten the password, you will have to reset it before you begin.

    Test in safe mode. Same problem?

    After testing, restart as usual (not in safe mode) and make sure you always have the problem. View the results of the test.

  • Does anyone else have a problem with Adware/Malware with Chrome and Safari?

    Started having trouble there is 24 to 36 hours. It affects both my iMac and my Air. Pop-up windows whenever I try to click through an e-mail and within an application when I want to read on or click on a left/right arrow to display additional information.

    I upgraded to El Capitan OS on both. Have reinstalled the security provided by my ISP, Charter-spectrum suite. I'm REALLY frustrated!

    Browse the list of "applications" in the finder and find any number of malicious applications. whenever I'm fixing Mac of someone who is having this problem, I googled 'virus [application] '.

    Hope this Helps!

  • Adware? And how to get rid of?

    Since last week when I'm redirected to a game at random navigation site. First of all, I thought it was just something to do with Firefox (the browser I used), but then the same thing happened with other browsers too. I then installed Opera to judge if it would happen again and Yes, it happened. Then I tried to reinstall the whole OS, hoping that would solve the problem. There can be no. I always get redirected to a site "yu0123456". How to get rid of this? I installed AdGuard so it blocks me enter the site, but still not open tabs. After the reset of the operating system (I also erased the hard drive), I did not visit malicious sites. I just downloaded programs I had before that happens again (steam, Spotify, discord). I tried to scan my Mac with Malware Antibytes, but he found nothing. If it's harmless, I could live with that, but it's very irritaring. If there is a chance he could phis my information, so I want that he removed as soon as possible. What can I do?

    Thanks in advance!

    Adware is usually not malicious. Its purpose is to push ads into your face. Adware makers get a fraction of a payment of one hundred whenever an ad is shown. That's their motivation.

    You say wipe you the drive, but if you restored a backup Time Machine or Migration Wizard to restore your applications and the user account, you managed that by copying the problem at the back.

    MalwareBytes for Mac can't catch everything. The adware manufacturers are constantly changing which moved things and which appoints the files have. It's a job without end for manufacturers of MalwareBytes to catalogue these items, so they can be found and removed. But of course he is not hurt anything to use as it can remove a lot of problems for you, leaving only the new elements, unknown to locate and remove manually.

    Depending on where you have steam, Spotify and discord, the installers may have been (and often are) responsible for the installation of adware and you want to install.

  • problems tab

    I refreshed Firefox (mistake)
    Make a right click on the mouse will not always open in a new tab or a new window
    What should do?

    Make a right click of the mouse gives me much too many options - more than the half-dozen or so that I had before - how can I shorten the list?

    Seizure of a research question and pressing on enter does nothing.
    Enter a question to search on the top bar does not open

    What should do?

    Hi, this is probably because something on your system has crushed all providers default search in firefox. to recover it please download and reinstall firefox to https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/ on top of your existing version.

    Since it is a behavior often caused by adware on a system, please also run a scan complete of your different system with security tools like the free version of malwarebytes and adwcleaner.
