Hey guys. Soooo, I let my sister use my computer to check her facebook. Now, my computer is being overwhelmed by mal-ware all stemming from something called Fast Browser Search. Also, It is hijacking every search I do involving any word that has to do with malware removal, virus, or any safety software. I tried deleting the program from the add/remove programs list, but it just won't. I also tried manually deleting the file from program files. Please pit, help me save my computer.

I clicked this, and Fast Browser Search hijacked the link and directed me to it's own homepage.

Actually dude, I think you're boned. Sounds like "your sister" grabbed something truly malicious...

Start the computer in safe mode and delete Fast Browser Search manually, or edit the msconfig startup so it doesn't start with the computer.

Make sure to unregister the dll's and delete any reg keys. Theres tutorials and how to instructions on google.

dude, asfter clicking the links a dozen or so times, it went through! i downloaded it and am running a scan right now. If this works, I owe you soooo hard.

that may not be the end of it. if you're lucky it will be, but when the something similar happened with my computer, it would close out the antivirus program mid install(something where there was about a 1/2 second window to stop the virus from closing it and eventually we got it clicked.), but if you've got it installed already you should be fine.

This virus sounds bloody hilarious
They've really got you pinned huh

Complete system restore seems your only viable option, the kind you run while the thing boots, hopefully they haven't blocked that escape route

Holy ****, that's a clever virus.

not particularly although the "System restore cannot protect you" made my day

Quote by Well.......
It kind-of sounds like that conficker virus...


Yes, there are many malwares like this usually they pose as an anti-virus/spyware/adware programs and give you a false list of a huge amount of malware on your machine and hijack various functions on your computer not to mention are really obnoxious with the goal of getting you to give them your credit card info to buy the full version of the "anti-virus" software to remove the nonexistent malware.

To those saying just delete it manually and edit the startup ini that's only part of the problem. It's comparable to having the door locked then some guy punches his fist through the door you proceed to smash his fist with a crowbar an he pulls back and runs away screaming but the hole is still there.

Ok, so I ran the anti-malware program..... I tried to delete one of the infected files. A pop-up appeared saying "In Soviet Russia, Virus delete you". :-l I proceeded to ask my sister if she went on any other sites when on my computer. Turns out, she went on 4-chan and saved some pictures to my computer. Guys, this is a 4chan-based virus. Right now, im on my dad's laptop trying to find out a cure for this. Anyone know anyhting about this virus?

You are probably now part of a botnet. You will probably have to F-disk.

Did she do this on purpose. And what were the pics of????

The killing your sister thing just jumped from Pit immaturity to viable option.
