Windows 7: Help with removing happili virus

Help with removing happili virus

Hi there!

Recently it seems as though my Google searches are being redirected to happili more and more often (and I think once to infomash?). Anyway, it seems as if people on here have been very helpful in helping folks remove this virus but, it also looks like the instructions vary on a system by system basis. I guess I'd like to join the queue and get some help getting this virus off of my system. I've seen requests for some files to begin the diagnosis so i've gone ahead and attached those files to save some time. Thanks for any help!

Hello weeksjr and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm not a malware removal expert but while waiting for one of our experts to respond, you could try a few free on-demand scanners to see if they can remove it.

Malwarebytes | Hitman Pro | Superantispyware | Comodo Cleaning Essentials

If the scanner offers a link to update the data base, do so before running the scan. Then run a full scan rather than a quick scan. If any malware is discovered you will be given the opportunity to quarantine or remove. I'd suggest quarantine because you could reinstall if it turns out to be a false-positive and a necessary file. Please post back if this helps or not.

Hi there! Thanks for the advice. I'd actually already run Malwarebytes several times and it didn't come up w/ anything. I went ahead and did a scan w/ Hitman Pro and it found something that it thought was malware called neoasi.dll The only options that I had were to ignore it or delete it so, I went w/ delete. I've JUST rebooted and it doesn't look like deleting it had any bad effect on anything. As for the Happili redirect, it happened intermittently so, I can't say for sure or not if it's gone.

Hi! Yeah, I saw that other post and saw that the fix worked but, and of course now i can't remember where, I read somewhere that not everyone should run combofix b/c it could actually do more harm than good. That's what led me to posting my own post.... thought?

In case Jacee is otherwise engaged, I'll also ask Corinne to have a look at this for you.

Both Jacee and Corinne are professionally trained, and Microsoft recognised, malware removalists.
