I recently discovered that my web browser was compromised through someone I added as a friend on facebook. I believed he did it through facebook because each time I login to my facebook account (whether in the morning, afternoon or even at midnight) he comes in within seconds and the next thing I will experience is that some unsolicited advert will start appearing on my browser disturbing my activity. When I realized this, I stopped loggin to my facebook account, I uninstalled those objects and the unsolicited adverts (pop up) went away.

When I stopped loggin to facebook, one day I noticed that an object was injected into my wireless network which probably must have made some changes on either my system or router. I had to buy spyhunter (malware removal or protector), I scanned my system and all the found objects were removed but each time I try to scan my system with spyhunter it always say that, ďMY INTERNET CONNECTIONS OR PROXY SERVER IS HAVING ISSUES AS RESULT OF MALWARE INSTALLED ON MY MACHINEĒ The issue is that spyhunter and malwarebytes are not seeing this object on my system. I get this message on daily basis.

I have tried running Microsoft fixit and checking my IP for DNS changer at FBI website and the said my IP is not affected by DNS changer. I had to abandone the first sim card I was using for my router (Huawei B683-031) and bought a new sim card to see if I can change my IP.

THE MAJOR PROBLEM NOW IS:
1) I normally get email notification of the major site that I visit on daily basis. This is strange to me.

2) I cannot download nor upload any longer but I can browse normally (I can watch videos on youtube with the same network). This issue started after purchasing a particular video online, I couldnít download the videos, when I contacted the vendor, they said they donít know what the problem could be. I had to go to an internet cafť to download the videos.

3) At times, while in the middle browsing, if Iím about to visit a particular website that I have always visited, I will just be denied service and when I try to change my IP by using hotspot shield, I will be given access again.

4) Iíve just registered a domain for my new website which Iím afraid he might come after it by attacking the site through Denial of Service or affect the load time speed.

Please I would be grateful if anyone can help me out with this.

Thank you.

Hi and welcome to Spyware Warrior Forum.
My name is Cypher, and I will be helping you with your malware problems.
This may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
If you no longer require help i would be grateful if you would let me know.

Before we start please note the following important guidelines.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
  • Only post your problem at One help site. Applying fixes from multiple help sites can cause problems.
  • Only reply to this thread do not start another, Please continue responding until I give you the "All Clean"
    Remember, absence of symptoms does not mean the infection is all gone.
  • Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans whilst I am helping you.
  • Please DO NOT install any other software (or hardware) during the cleaning process.
  • Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
  • Note: No Reply Within 3 Days Will Result In Your Topic Being Closed!
Note: If you haven't done so already, please read this topic Things to know before you post where the conditions for receiving help here are explained.

Please be aware that removing Malware is a potentially hazardous undertaking. I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection, and I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.

Because of this, I advise you to backup any personal files and folders before you start

Please click on THIS link, and follow the instructions for installing TCRB and creating a backup of your Registry.

Next.
