How to Remove Adware Viruses /Ads & pop-ups From Any Browser | Remove pop up ads 🕷️🚫💻


Hello everybody! This video is about taking away viral advertising
in such browsers as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Yandex Browser, Microsoft
Edge and Internet Explorer. If your browser suddenly opens tabs containing
advertising (for example, Vulcan casino), if tabs with popular websites (Yandex, VK,
YouTube, Odnoklassniki) appear to be filled with extra advertising banners, or adverts
start flashing as soon as you start the browser, it means your computer is infected with a
virus. All that advertising slows down the computer
so much that it’s impossible to work with the browser! For example, I installed several programs
from a doubtful source. As a result, here is what I get without receiving
any notice: • Amigo browser and other services by Mail.ru
were installed (Odnoklassniki, Vkontakte, Automatic software update service, Unity Web
Player); • my default browser was changed to Amigo;
• the startup page of other browsers was changed to Mail.ru;
• all browsers are showing advertising banners all the time (here are several examples). However, this is just the beginning – things
could be much worse in your case. Before you start deleting viral advertising,
you can roll back to the last restore point or restore your system from an image you such
function has been enabled in your computer. You can watch my previous videos to see how
to do it. Otherwise you will have to delete the virus
manually. It is a long and painstaking process of several
stages: • cleaning Windows scheduler;
• deleting malware (viruses); • cleaning system startup list;
• cleaning the browsers. In the description to this video, you can
go down to the stage which you need. First of all, disconnect the computer from
the network and check Task Scheduler. Viruses and unwanted programs often create
automatic tasks to run various malware processes: • downloading, installing and updating themselves
and other viruses; • forced opening of advertising tabs in
browsers and so on. With the use of Task Scheduler, a virus can
install itself again while you are trying to delete it. In order to delete such tasks, go to Control
Panel / Administrative Tools / Task Scheduler. Click once on the Scheduler Library and search
the list for the tasks related to malware processes (you can find some of them in the
description of this video below). In my case they are “find journal” and
“MailRuUpdater.” Delete these tasks. To do it, right-click on the task, select
“delete” and confirm it by clicking OK. After deleting all malware tasks in the Task
Scheduler, go to Control Panel / Programs and Features and sort installed programs by
date of the last installation. You can see what programs and features were
installed without your knowing it. In my case, the infection date is 9 December
2017 and here are the programs that were installed by themselves:
• Amigo browser; • Automatic software update service;
• Unity Web Player. Delete all of them. To do it, right-click once on the program
and select “Delete.” Some malware cannot be deleted in this way,
because they are not shown in Programs and Features menu. To see them, start Task Manager by pressing
the key combination Ctrl + Shift +Esc. Then click on “More details” and open
the tab “Details” (in Windows 7 it is the tab “Processes”) and look for all
suspicious processes running on your computer. In my case, they are MailRuUpdater.exe, mrupdsrv.exe
by Mail.ru Update Service and so on (see the extended list in the description). Then right-click on one of the processes (for
example, MailRuUpdater.exe), click “File location” and write down the path to this
folder (in my case, this is Andrey Revchuk/AppData/Local/Mail.ru). Repeat these actions for all suspicious processes,
and then restart the computer in safe mode (to see how, watch my previous videos). When in Safe Mode, go to Control Panel / File
Explorer Options, then click on the tab “View” and choose the option “Show hidden files,
folders and drives.” Uncheck the box next to “Hide protected
operating system files (recommended)” and then apply the changes to all folders. After that go to the folders the path to which
you have written down, and delete all files and folders created by these malware processes. In my case, I find the folder Mail.ru in the
path “С:/Users/Andrey Revchuk/AppData/Local/” and delete it. After viruses have been deleted, open the
Task manager, click “Startup” and see if there is anything wrong. Disable and delete all unwanted processes. To do it, right-click on the line, choose
to open file location and delete it. Repeat this operation for all suspicious processes
in the startup tab. After that, press Win + R, type in “Regedit”
and press “Enter.” Viruses and unwanted programs create entries
in the registry to download or update their files when Windows starts. These entries can be found in registry keys
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_CURRENT_USER in the path /Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current
Version in folders Run and RunOnce. If these registry lines (Run and RunOnce)
contain registry entries related to malware processes, delete them. To do it, right-click on the necessary file
(for example, Amigo) and click “Delete.” After that, search the registry for names
of malware processes. In the registry editor, select “Computer”
and click “Find” in the tab “Edit.” Enter the names of those malware processes
which you remembered (for example, mail.ru) and click on “Find next.” Delete all registry lines where these processes
are found. To do it, right-click on the necessary file
and click “Delete.” After each deleting, press F3 key (that is,
restart the search for malware registry entries with such name). This action should be repeated until registry
editor finds no malware entries for your search. Be very careful – if you delete a system line
in the registry editor, your computer will stop working. After deleting all entries, close the registry
editor. After that, press Win + R, type in “msconfig”
and press “Enter.” Open the tab “Services” and select “Hide
all Microsoft services” then look at the list. If you see any services related to viruses
or malware processes, uncheck the boxes next to such services and click OK. In my case they are “Mail.ru Update Service,”
“Updater.Mail.Ru.” After disabling them, log out of the Safe
Mode and restart the computer in normal mode. Your next step is to check browser shortcuts
on the desktop, in the taskbar and the Start menu. Sometimes viruses or unwanted programs change
the value in Target line of the shortcut. After that, you browser startup page changes
into a website you don’t know, and your browser starts with several new windows showing
you advertising. To fix the problem, right-click on the shortcut
(for example, of Chrome browser) and select Properties. Look attentively at the value in Target line
of your browser shortcut. For Google Chrome, the end of line should
contain the value “Chrome.exe” and the path should correspond to the folder containing
this program. If the shortcut shows the path to a file other
that the application’s .exe file (for example, some .url or .bat file) or the path contains
a URL address of a website (for example, http://virussite.com), you should change such path to:
• for 32-bit Windows – “C:Program FilesGoogleChromeApplicationchrome.exe”; • for 64-bit Windows – “C:Program Files
(x86)GoogleChromeApplicationchrome.exe”. After you made any changes, click on “Apply.” You will find examples of correct Target values
for shortcuts of such browsers as Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer,
Microsoft Edge and Yandex Browser in the description of this video. Instead of changing the shortcut, you can
delete it and create a new one. Then you should reset browser settings. This function will:
• reset startup page settings; • reset quick access and search system pages;
• unpin all tabs; • make the system disable all browser themes
and extensions; • make the system delete all temporary files
(including cookies). Your bookmarks, history and passwords will
be preserved. To do it in Google Chrome or Yandex Browser,
go to Settings / Show advanced settings, then click on “Reset settings” and then “Reset.” In Mozilla Firefox, go to the menu Help / Troubleshooting
information, then Clean Firefox, and confirm your decision. After resetting Firefox, a folder containing
old browser settings will appear on the desktop. That is, Firefox creates a backup on the desktop
(with the name “Old Firefox Data”), and you can restore deleted data using the folder
on the desktop in case you lost something important. If you don’t need this folder, just delete
it. In Opera browser, there is no option for automatic
resetting, so you have to do it manually. Go to the menu, select “About Opera” and
open paths to user profile and browser cache in File Explorer. Make sure you close Opera, and delete all
contents of the profile and cache folders. This procedure will reset all Opera settings. In Microsoft Edge, go to Settings, and in
the section “Clear browsing data” click on “Choose what to clear.” Choose “Cookies and saved website data”
and “Cached data and files”, then click “Clear.” In Internet Explorer, go to Service / Browser
Properties, then open the tab Advanced settings and click on “Reset” (in doing so, you
can also delete personal data by selecting this option). You should restart the computer for the changes
to take effect. In the end, the file “Hosts” must be checked. To do it, start Notepad as an administrator,
choose “Open” in the File menu, enable showing all files, then go to “С:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc”
and open the file “hosts.” If there are any lines which begin without
a hash-mark, delete them, and save the file. If you liked this video, click the Like button
