What a weekend. IT started in the week when I downloaded a programme to get a file sent. The programme was Frostwire.
First I did an uninstall on both, even tried system restore. Yes both said it had gone… No it hadn’t
Frostwire installed and by default even though I ticked NO it installed a website hijacker called Funmood. It has taken all day to remove this bugger from my PC.
I used AVG, no help. IOBit registry and Malware remover, nothing (both programmes are paid for, not free versions)
Used CCleaner, still no.
Used Malwarebytes (free) this said it had removed the hijacker and malware, and yes it had, but not all of it.
Then did regedit and removed every trace manually so no longer in the system
However it still remained inthe browsers, Firefox, Chrome and IE though not Opera?. Had to do a reset for FFox to clear it, Chrome a lot more trouble and it may still be therre somehwere but no way of telling, IE did a reset..
Google Funmoods and you will see what I mean, but go nowhere near the site unless you want trouble, same with Frostwire. I understand CNet also puts this on your system so be warned.
