Windows 7: ransom malware not found by MSSE

04 Sep 2014   #1

Wx 7 Pro 64 bit 6.1.7601. ransom malware not found by MSSE

Stepped in something yesterday or this morning. When I click links within any page I get a barrage of pop ups with this: (link removed) plus a string of numbers and letter paralyze Firefox and kill Chrome with a red screen demanding I hit a dialog box. Ad blocker works to blank out all but the red screen. SuperAntispyware can't find anything and neither can MS Security Essentials. Both have latest definition updates. Very odd results on Google when I google the suspect URL. Get a normal looking search then it jumps to all languages and weird unrelated stuff endlessly repeating text and the only real link shown is trying to get me to buy a spyware program that when I checked on the other computer says it's a scam. Surely this: Archives - Malware Rescue is not the only link to trouble with this hijack/ransom virus. So I tried to download the Safety Scanner and it will not run. Tried over and over on both computers and the program installer will not run. Please help!

Please do the steps following in the following tutorial: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free Please disable auto quarantine in case Malwarebytes finds any false positives. If anything that seems to not be malware or potentially unneeded programs are found, such as system files or programs you think you need and use, please post a screenshot of the list of detected items: Screenshot with Paint, Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

Also, please change the link to the malicious website into normal text in case someone accidentally clicks on it.

Thank you! I reinstalled AVG and it found not one but two trojans and an Adware threat as well that has been crashing my flash player for a week. Kind of odd that neither program recommended by Microsoft had these in their databases.

You're welcome. Remember, no antivirus/antimalware can detect all threats. So if one fails, you should try another. Also, remember that you can't have two or more AVs at one time. To install a new one, you should first remove the old one. (Malwarebytes is an exclusion as it normally does not interfere with other AVs.)
