FireFox 3.0 action: reset to default. Window X3 I copied their URL to post on this thread, if you know any malware protection program which can take care of this kind of malware, please post. First 3 URL come up every time I click. I have CClean.
I’ve used all of these and they all work at removing malware....with Malwarebytes being the best.
I agree. I rely on Malwarebytes. They stay ahead of trouble.
So I have to be the punk this time. It’s my turn!
There, I said it!
>> please help
1) Stay away from those pr0n sites
2) Stop downloading “free” utilities and toolbars and crap like that
3) Don’t reflexively open every attachment some bozo emails to you, even if that bozo is your “friend”
4) *Buy* your music, movies, books, etc
5) Uninstall Java. Period.

Yes, MalwareBytes should do it but in order to run it, you may need to restart in Safe Mode w/ Networking, and run a utility called “RKill” first, to stop any running processes that manage to load.
Also, I would recommend running Sophos Anti-Rootkit as well to make sure you don’t just get reinfected.
Finally, with these types of infections, even after the malware is gone, your internet settings will probably still be screwed up. You may need to run these commands from the command prompt (Start Menu > Run > cmd.exe):
netsh winsock reset (then press enter)
netsh int ip reset (press enter again)
After that, you need to restart the computer.
Also, make sure to check your browser settings under proxy settings and delete any proxy server that is set up there.
Yes I use Malwarebytes and its very good. I have never had any problems.
Download.com’s installer will also try to trick you into installing adware now, so I wouldn’t recommend them anymore.
Moved back to spybot after malwarebytes couldn’t remove conduit search.
Are you sure you’re logged in?
Safe mode!!! Install in regular mode then Run malware bytes in safe mode
What about midget-pr0n? I heard that it was safe.

What's data mining?

“Moved back to spybot after malwarebytes couldnt remove conduit search.”
I despise that blanking search! I see it on friends computers , they are oblivious to it. I nuked it off of mine but forget how. You usually find instructions on internet for removing malware even the well entrenched kind
ALWAYS watch everything you click on, download managers, etc., any .exe file must be suspect until proven kosher. Mind everything! Don’t allow anything to be installed, it’s how the sneaky bastards infect so many systems. And, scan EVERY file you save to disk. It only takes a minute! Malwarebytes is free, top-shelf, and comes highly recommended by everyone.
OK, I'll bite; what is "data mining"?
You heard wrong. It's little different. In a short while you'll be infected; midget-pr0n only needs a tiny exploit and then WHAM! your whole system is brought low.
Dang, is nothing sacred any more?
Malwarebytes! It’s Got Electrolytes!
Bad news there! Micro exploit, small system footprint. Smells like cabbage.
Look, Mpr0n is no good for you anyway. The little thrill you get is short-lived.
I used to use spybot a couple years back. Well, maybe a few years now... Time sure flies when you’re having so much fun.
One example of data mining is the system put into place in all schools to collect/share data from various sources under the guise of Common Core and parents haven’t a clue.
I'm as close to a computer ignoramus as you'll ever fine....what does Java do, and if I uninstall what will I NOT be able to do?
If all else fails, go to majorgeeks.com and follow the instructions exactly. Warning: for experienced users only.
Yep - sounds good to maybe be rid of it....but back to my original query - what IS Java, and what does it “do for” my computer?

I had trouble with that conduit search crap.....installed malwarebytes and it took care of the problem
Thank you for all the suggestion. I use PC.
I have to try to see it works for me.
Did you hear about Kaspersky malware protection program?
The consensus from this board is malwarebyte.
It got me recently and it took malwarebytes to get rid of a pest with the name Aztec in it.
I had to go into safe mode to delete the folder, change the add on in IE, and reset Chrome to defaults.
Malwarebytes kept crashing when i would run a scan to remove conduit.
I just use the free version. It works great no problems.
Someone has misinformed you... Sadly, well unless you are really into this sort of thing, it's only the black Thai lesbian midget pr0n that's really safe.
[Malwarebytes kept crashing when i would run a scan to remove conduit.]
That I don’t understand at all. Are we talking about the same thing here? First installing malwarebytes (the free version) and then letting the program completely remove conduit and any other malware you have on your computer. You might have more than one.
For me it took a few minutes to clean everything out but it sure was worth the wait. Those malware bugs are a real bother.
I didn’t have a problem until it was apparent that I had search conduit. So it got the blame.
There were some other malware on there as well, so it could be that conduit coincided with another bug.
All I know is that malwarebytes crashed and Spybot didn’t in that situation. And by the time I was done I was just glad it was over.
Otherwise, malwarebytes was great. Like I told someone in a private reply— it hadn’t been updated in a week or so, so maybe that played a role as well.
