Ilago! Are you still out there?

Postby Teleost » Thu Aug 27, 2015 6:22 pm

Random cry to the ether in the hope that ilago magically hears.

I've got a nasty on a Windows 10 machine that I just can't shift.
Malwarebites and ADWCleaner took out a heap of stuff, but still getting popups demanding that the user calls a number to get the thing removed.

I have no idea on what shiny thing she clicked on, but this is one a the most persistent ones I've seen for years.

I am still around. I haven't done a lot of malware removal in recent times. Just a few nasties from the kids' (various) computers.

Run these before getting into too many long lists. JRT is fairly heavy duty as a removal tool. It might give you an ID to work from.

Mini Toolbox with all options checked. If you have complex remote desktop configurations you might have to make a note of proxies etc. Or make sure you can reconfigure them. Mini Toolbox

Brilliant.

I'll give them a run and let you know.

Many thanks.

Not my machine Roughy. While it is still possible to collect nasties, Linux is a fair way down the target list.:)
