Hello

Been infected with a browser hack which is in Google Chrome & Internet Explorer v10 This is on my Toshiba Windows 7 64bit Laptop I have tried:- Super Anti Spyware McAfee security Malware anti Bytes Full Windows Toshiba factory restore Removed HDD and scanned on my Desktop with Kaspersky All windows updates, Java, Adobe CCleaner

I am now at a loss.

The next thing I was going to try was a programme calle Trojan Killer I downloaded from Cnet website.

Anyone happen to have had this infection and know what is going to remove it please

Thanks

I would try hitman pro , you can make bootable cd or usb stick , it will boot , but not into windows , then will check your system fir any nasties . Its free the first 30 days . Will usually kill just about any nasty out there . Good luck .

anything you downloaded from Cnet download.com website will also try to install 'extras' you don't want, so be sure to choose 'Custom' and UN select the 'extras' that Cnet has bundled with it's installer.

Thanks for the warning lotvic !

After hours of reading online I found a free download tool which claimed to remove this browser hack called "adwcleaner" from the Bleeping Computer website click here Worked ! I was concerned why McAfee or Kaspersky, Super Anti Spyware, Malwarebytes would not detect and remove this. Did try Hitman Pro but be warned of Extras with this one.

Thanks both nickf & Lotvic.

Note a System Restore will unlikley remove a Virus infection. If I am wrong with this Please correct me.
