OK U LIL FUCKERS HERES HOW TO SOLVE THIS.
If you happen to click on one of these links, from what it looks like, this seems to be some type of ADWARE and nothing OVERLY DESTRUCTIVE. However, from looking at the link, it looks like a fake Antivirus rogue. IT IS NOT REAL!! But the worst things about these is that many rogues like these will block you from accessing certain programs.(Claiming they’re “infected”). If this is the case and you can’t run your Antivirus program/you don’t already have one, IMMEDIATELY restart your PC. Once it has turned back on, tap F8 until you get a dialogue mentioning “Safe Mode”. Choose “Safe Mode with Networking” and navigate your way to bleepingcomputer.com and download a program called ”RKill.” Also, for extra security measures, download MalwareBytes Anti-Malware for just an extra scan (RKill often misses temporary files/registry keys).
Also!!! If you already have MalwareBytes installed & you can’t run it due to the malware, there’s a simple solution. In the start menu, search “MalwareBytes” and find the program folder. Inside, there will be a folder called Chameleon. Using this, you can bypass the rogue’s blocking feature because instead of MB being called mbam.exe, it’s called something like svchost.exe or some other essential file the rogue could not block itself. It’s pretty helpful and will help you avoid all that Safe Mode business.
TL;DR? IF YOU’RE INFECTED, FOLLOW THE STEPS IN THE 1ST PARAGRAPH.
Also, navigate here for my insight on this thing. It’s pretty dang helpful.
