Hello, i recently just got the happili virus, ive recently checked this site and what i found didnt work for me. I have malewarebytes and tried full scan and it didnt detect it. i have also downloaded google chrome to avoid the problem but now i get happili as well, just less frequently then internet explorer.

Windows 7 Pro with SP1 32bit

Welcome to the Seven Forums, Synder.

I had found the instructions as under at for removing it, and it did the job for me nicely.

1 Exit out of any open Web browsers.
2 Click the "Start" button located in the bottom left of the screen. The Start menu launches.
3 Type “Windows Defender” in the Search box located at the bottom of the Start menu. Press “Enter.”
4 Click “Scan” from the top menu and then select “Full Scan.” The Windows Defender tool scans your computer for the Happili virus. The files are quarantined and automatically removed. This could take several hours depending on how badly infected your computer system is.
5 Click the “X” located in the upper right corner of Windows Defender to close the program after the Happili virus has been removed.

I suggest that Windows Defender should be given a try before anything else.

My Windows Defender does not work. on the front it says "A problem caused this program's server to stop. To Start the service, click the start button, or restart your computer." When i click the start button, and error pops up saying "The specified server does not exist as an installed service. (Error Code: 0x80070424)"

Ive tried restarting the computer, and the other top buttons do nothing.
