Anyone know how to find and remove unstopp.me ,AVG keeps stopping it trying to make a connection .
Yeah i saw this but theres nothing in there to delete. Nothing new . I redownloaded google chrome, that stopped all the unwanted sites being loaded. Say im not browsing any site, im not on google chrome and i still get unstopp.me trying to connect.
Avg can not pinpoint where it is on my system.
Get Malware Bytes and run that https://www.malwarebytes.com/ Its free and has a paid service, but you get a month of premium for free too.
Thanks I'll check it out.
I would also try Malware Bytes, other than that I always create a Clonezilla image of my clean install of Win or Linux with all the drivers, updates and programs I use regularly, if anything happens I just reimage
If the other programs don't work you can give Webroot a try.
Wow its found 124 threats.
Edit: the unstopp.me is still on the pc.
Im at a point that i might wipe the whole pc and start again....
Hitman has a bootable usb version that helped me numerous times when nothing else would.
Sleeper backdoor app, will randomly go looking for the next payload to download.
Some sit deeper than the OS itself, I'd fdisk or replace the disk before installing a new OS.
Surf safer, download more carefully and do your random stuff in a VM.
I saw backdoor something but it got removed.
Remember vm's and sandbox's man.
What are they ?
He means if you are doing something "risky" that might get your computer infected, do it in a virtual environment first
I don't bother cleaning anything, it's a waste of time. Infected = shit happens and instant fresh install. Instead of spending hours reading and trying to clean up while most of the time you end up reinstalling/re-imaging anyway.
That what im going to do, get my old man to delete everything and reinstall windows xp
Don't need to delete everything either - just nuke the whole thing by deleting the old partition and install Windows back there.
On the bright side, this will give you a clean OS to use. One which surely isn't damaged by malicious software.
