Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

A program that I downloaded has left PUPS on my friends PC.

I downloaded a screen saver and wallpaper for a friend that left PUPS on her PC. They are now shutting off the virus program and access to the internet. I did a system restore to a date before I downloaded the screensaver program, but that did not work. The unwanted items are still there backdated to before I installed the program. I tried to re-download the virus program that it shut off, but as soon as I get to the web page where it is at it crashes the browser that I am using. I am out of solutions please help.The bad program is popularscreensavers.smileycentral.com. It has left PUPS from MyWay.MyWebSearch and FunWebProducts that can't be removed

You may have a virus, malware, adware, a browser hijacker, or pups (potentially unwanted programs).



A. If your computer will boot and you can operate it ok...

Download and install Malwarebytes and Superantispyware (Note: If you can\'t do the download on your machine, do it on a friend\'s, put them on a thumb drive, and install them from it). Then scan your computer with each program, and quarantine anything found.



B. If your computer won\'t boot, or can\'t operate properly after boot...

Tap F8 when you are booting, select "Safe Mode With Networking". Download and install Malwarebytes and Superantispyware (Note: If you can\'t do the download on your machine, do it on a friend\'s, put them on a thumb drive, and install them from it). Then scan your computer with each program, and quarantine anything found.



C. If this process finds malware, to keep stuff like that from coming back, I recommend you get the paid version of Malwarebytes.


If the above things do not help, pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" to connect the hard drive to a friend\'s computer, and scan the drive with Malwarebytes and Superantispyware on your friends machine. While you have the hard drive hooked up, backup any important files (pisctures, documents, etc.).



If the above
