Fbdownloader

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have a problem with a thing called fbdownloader, which at some stage in the recent past (I've been very ill with influenza for the past month) has ended up inadvertently being installed into my firefox browser.

 

I realised the problem when searches from my usual mozilla homepage (google) didn't come up with usual expected selections. Then I noticed the fbdownloader notice stating that the search was undertaken with that, rather than google.

 

I used revo uninstaller to remove it, and it still came back. I removed my existing firefox installation and clean installed a new one, and it still persists. Neither Anti-Malware or Online Armor have picked it up, and I now have no uninstaller to remove it. It seems to be invisible on a program search.

 

Any help possible would be most appreciated!

Hello, Runnybabbit

Welcome to the Emsisoft Support Forums. My name is Thomas (Tom is fine), and I will be helping you fixing your problems.

Please take note of some guidelines for this fix:

  • Refrain from making any changes to your computer including installing/uninstall programs, deleting files, modifying the registry, and running scanners or tools. Doing so could cause changes to the directions I have to give you and prolong the time required. Further more, you should not be taking any advice relating to this computer from any other source throughout the course of this fix.
  • If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
  • Even if things appear to be better, it might not mean we are finished. Please continue to follow my instructions and reply back until I give you the "all clean". We do not want to clean you part-way, only to have the system re-infect itself.
  • Do not start a new topic. The logs that you post should be pasted directly into the reply. Only attach them if requested or if they do not fit into the post.
  • Please set your system to show all files.

    Click Start, open My Computer, select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.

    Select the View Tab. Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.

    Uncheck: Hide file extensions for known file types

    Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.

    Click Yes to confirm.

  • Please attach the requested logfiles when you have it and we will go from there :)
