Adultyum.info virus problem !





dude_xyx
My computer has been infected with this terrible browser hijack virus. Sometimes it shows popups when you close the popup it opens another window to Aibaba site. and Sometimes it just redirect page to Adultyum.info which is a crappy porn site. It's really worse in Google Chrome.

I have BitDefener free edition which hasn't detected it and I have tried so many Anti-Spyware software but so far haven't had any luck. I have tried everything suggested about this various websites but couldn't get rid of it. I think whoever the bastards created this has updated the code.

I have tried.

01. Eset Onliner scanner
02. RogueKiller
03. Hitmanpro
04. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
05. JRT
06. adwcleaner
07. ESETPoweliksCleaner
08. Norton Power Eraser

1. Download ccleaner. Clean computer, Scan and fix your registry with it.
2. Uninstall any existing antivirus/ internet security.
Download Kaspersky internet security 2015 ( Comes with 30 days full function trial) and install from Here. update. Do a full scan with it.

If it still persists , download Spybot search & destroy (Free) from Here. Update and scan your computer with it.

Finally I goto it cleared from computer after scanning and cleaning shyware in safemode virus can with all those software and then ran the cCleaner.

Sometimes I'm a bit nostalgic for the old days when I ran Windows and had the occasional experience of cleaning up malware with Spybot or whatever. Then I read posts like this, and remember but am happy not to repeat the procedure.

Interesting that you still use basically the same programs I remember from years ago. I am familiar with Spybot and the "Hijack this" forum, which I benefitted from but fortunately never had to go through the procedure to get personalized advice for cleaning. Also I remember Ccleaner, but I never used or got to trust it. I think the last time I looked at it I suspected it of possibly being malware. Of course I have heard it recommended by numerous reliable sources so I know it is ok.

most if not all viruses that have been loaded onto a system have got a fallback system installed to prevent you from deleting it.

the easiest way to bypass this mechanism is booting windows into safemode, although I've seen virusses that would also load in safe mode by modifying windows core files, but that too can be bypassed by booting from an external source: eg Offline defender or any other bootable live distro scanners like Avira rescue CD.

when you can prevent the virus from starting up, you're pretty much in control again.

places to check are:
- the registry: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\CurrentVersion\Run... also check the current user hive
- Services.msc, any service that is not a microsoft service or something that is needed for your hardware should be turned off or at least set to manual.

one you've prevented the virus from starting up, you basically delete it's files, check the %appdata%, %programdata% directories and maybe even the hidden directoies in your %userprofile% directory


you could perfectly delete most if not all virusses manually but using some tools to do the hard word never hurts, personally I would use a bootable virus scanner on machines that don't have encryption on the hard drive and the safemode method on the ones that do.

keep it in mind that c(rap)cleaner is not a anti virus/spyware tool but as the name suggesst a crap cleaner that will delete stuff that is left behind by installers and such.


mallwarebytes has been useful too, all the rest is just bloatware imo.


also, get rid of defender, it's not a good antivirus. try avira free or comodo internet security ( comes with a lot of bloatware too but that can be removed easily )

I used to comodo internet security before started using BitDefender. But I heard so much good stuff about it and decided to use. It seems use less RAM than Comodo but lack the personal firewall. I'm thinking about start using Comodo again.

Anyway it's once in light years I end up with a virus problem like this. Last time it was like 4 years ago I think.

I'm using both Bitdefender and Comodo firewall.
But i turned off the firewall feature in Bitdefender.
Comodo has lot of features when comes to Firewall.
