OK.

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)

and:

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.

Download.com’s installer will also try to trick you into installing adware now, so I wouldn’t recommend them anymore.

I watch carefully when I am downloading anything. The snuck chrome in on me once. I trust them more than many sites. I always delete Norton now. They never paid their promised rebate and messed my computer up on top of that. I have been trying to get rid or the free candy virus on another computer. One anti-virus checked and found 1400 problems and then wanted me to pay to get rid of the virus. I got rid of the extortion in stead.

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.

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.

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.

remove conduit search.

Glad Spybot worked for you. Conduit and other unwanted search engines are best addressed by managing (removing) them all from each affected browser. Just did that very thing this morning while cleansing a badly-infected computer.

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.]

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.
