    ib.adnxs.com virus help

    Apparently, this virus attaches itself to browsers and redirects searches, etc. I use Firefox. I've spent the afternoon searching for, and trying, solutions to eradicate the virus but have been unsuccessful. Anyone here dealt with the virus?

    Thanks much.

    Re: ib.adnxs.com virus help

    For weird browser viruses like that, I usually update to the latest version of Malwarebytes (or Spybot), restart my computer, then run Malwarebytes (or Spybot) as administartor before doing anything else. Fixes it most of the time.

    I would start with Kaspersky's TDSSKiller

    **Note this is a link to an executable and it will download when you click on it.**
    TDSSKiller

    Re: ib.adnxs.com virus help

    Man, you guys are good. Got home from work, and the problem was gone. How'd you guys do that?! <g>

    Before leaving for work yesterday afternoon, I replaced Malwarebytes with a new download version. It was this new version, I think, that kicked out the virus.

    "Burn the computer. Kill it with fire." You jest (right?), but I'm Luddite at heart. Often, I'm tempted, I'm tempted. . . .
