CLOSED Getting cloudfare security warning when going to askvg.com

Recommended Posts

When ging to askvg.com I get a security warning from cloudfare that I have to complete a CAPTCHA before I can access that site.

Why do I have to complete a CAPTCHA?


Completing the CAPTCHA proves you are a human and gives you temporary access to the web property.

What can I do to prevent this in the future?
If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware.
If you are at an office or shared network, you can ask the network administrator to run a scan across the network looking for misconfigured or infected devices.

So now I have the question is my laptop infected?

I have attached the required files.

Disable the HTTPS Everywhere browser extension and let me know if you get the same Cloudflare message.

Copy the below code to Notepad; Save As fixlist.txt to your Desktop.

Close Notepad.

NOTE: It's important that both files, FRST64 and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system

Run FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.

If the tool needed a restart please make sure you let the system restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart.

The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Attach it to your reply.

Note: If the tool warns you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.

Here is the scan log from RogueKiller.

Edit: got the Fall Creators Update through Windows Update.

To be sure I did a new scan after the update. log2.

And I still get the Cloudfare warning message.

Nothing in the RogueKiller logs that standout.

Download AdwCleaner and save it on your desktop.

  1. Close all open programs and Internet browsers (you may want to print our or write down these instructions first).
  2. Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
  3. Click on the Scan button.
  4. After the scan has finished, click on the Clean button.
  5. Confirm each time with OK.
  6. You will be prompted to restart your computer. A text file will open in Notepad after the restart (this is the log of what was removed), which you can save on your desktop.
  7. Attach that log file to your reply by clicking the More Reply Options button to the lower-right of where you type in your reply.
    NOTE: If you lose that log file for any reason, you can find it at C:\AdwCleaner on your computer.

Nothing in the AdwCleaner log that would be the cause of the Cloudflare alerts. Could just be Cloudflare is being over zealous.  I do not see any indications that the system is infected in your logs.

Okay, thank you for you're time Kevin.

Good to know that my laptop isn't infected.

EDIT: Went today to askvg.com and I no longer get the Cloudfare warning message.

So it seems that is fixed on their side.

Good to hear.

Unless you are having problems, it is time to do the final steps.

Now to remove most of the tools that we have used in fixing your machine:

Download Delfix from here and save it to your desktop.

  • Ensure Remove disinfection tools is checked.
  • Also place a checkmark next to:
    • Create registry backup
    • Purge system restore
  • Click the Run button.

When the tool is finished, a log will open in notepad. I do not need the log. You can close Notepad.

Empty the Recycle Bin

You can delete and uninstall any programs I had you download, that you do not wish to keep on the system.

To Remove EEK simple delete the EEK for in the of your System Drive, normally C:\EEK

Run Windows Update and update your Windows Operating System.
