Youtube and unity3d pages opened by itself while idling at homepage of firefox

Recommended Posts

I see no malware in the FRST logs.  Did both pages load shortly after launching Firefox?  If so, Firefox may have thought it was starting after a crash and loaded the tabs that were open when it crashed.

That is odd behavior.

Let's take a look with a different tool.

Download RogueKiller from https://www.fosshub.com/RogueKiller.html and save it to your desktop.

  • Double-click on setup.exe to install RogueKiller.

Close all programs and disconnect any USB or external drives before running the tool.

  • Right-click RogueKiller.exe and select Run As Administrator to run the tool.
  • Once the Prescan has finished, click Scan.
  • Once the Status box shows "Scan Finished", click on the "Report" button and attach the scan log to your reply.

Earlier i downloaded the roguekiller from bleepingcomputer, and it only found some trackprog things that didnt seem malicious, i could be wrong though. Now I downloaded that roguekiller from your link, and ran the program again and it, though i dont know what you mean by "prescan", when i start the roguekiller it says "updates Check" and "Scan progress Check" but it doesnt actually seem to do any "prescan", there is only that Scan button which starts the scan which later can be exported in the report log.

Anyway, here are both reports from programs downloaded from bleepingcomputer and fosshub

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.

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.
