windows 8 - CNET

Hi and thanks,

I noticed that when ever I try to download (so it seems) anything.  I get redirected to CNET and then it is followed by a virus.  So I end up restoring to a earlier date.  The lastest one  changed all my https to a red slash across.  No matter what site I went to Google/msn/gmail.

I have google chrome.

Does anyone else notice the samething?

This is a NEW PC HP

Download and install http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?part=dl-10804572&subj=dl&tag=button.  Update MalwareBytes then run a scan to clean the computer.

Some details, please?

What security software are you using? What browser? How do you know about the virus?
Did you do any scans?

Download malwarebytes antimalware (free) (if you have not already) update the definition files, boot up in safe mode, and run a scan. Clean whatever it finds, boot up normally, and run the scan again.

Also run TDSSKiller (free).

thanks for response,

I do a system restore and that cleans it all up.

I have:
Kaspersky security(Internet Security 2013)

I was told that malware is already in with the Kaspersky security (Internet Security 2013).

It just seems like anything to do with cnet.com triggers problems.  This is Windows 8.

browser is google chrome (lastest version).

When you install MBAM, it'll ask about the update (update means getting the latest data definition files that have all the information about the latest malware, vitrii, trojns, etc.)

You'll also see an update tab when you run MBAM and its window opens. Any time you run a scan, you should click on update to get the latest data files and then hit scan to scan your PC for malware.  If it's not clear, worry not; it'll become clear once you install and run MBAM.
