Doinkster: Malwarebyte found (searchnet.blinkxcore.com) and (poweliks). I think I will have to take it in and have someone who knows what they are doing fix it for me. Nov 17, 2014 23:42:59 GMT -5
skallagrim91: Bingo! I use a combination of AVG (free version) and Malwarebytes, and they do quite well. Their removal tools should be able to clear your machine without needing to take it to anyone. If you want more info, message me and I can go into more detail. Nov 18, 2014 2:53:01 GMT -5
Doinkster: I use the same combo but when I lowered my security to log in, I didnt put my security back. Once the virus(searchnet.blinkxcore.com) is there, these anti virus will not remove. I was able to remove (poweliks) but not the other. Nov 18, 2014 14:43:04 GMT -5
skallagrim91: Blinkxcore does seem to be a more insidious one, though there are removal instructions to be found, depending on Windows version and/or browser. I seem to recall you use Chrome? Which windows version to go with it? Nov 18, 2014 19:04:38 GMT -5
Doinkster: I am using Windows 7 with internet explorer. I rarely use Chrome. I did find some fixes but seemed a little above my abilities. My symptom are websites showing in my history I have never been to and my computer locking up my DSL modem. Nov 19, 2014 3:02:30 GMT -5
Doinkster: As soon as I disable my internet connection, the DSL modem starts working again. Nov 19, 2014 3:04:29 GMT -5
skallagrim91: Seems we need stronger remedies. Malwarebytes' anti-rootkit is downloadable from http://www.malwarebytes.org/downloads/#tools - ensure no other programs are running at the time. A run through, a reboot, then another run just for double check. Nov 19, 2014 7:03:47 GMT -5
skallagrim91: Oh, and don't forget to use the "Cleanup" option on scan results after the scan is done. Nov 19, 2014 7:06:27 GMT -5
Doinkster: The anti rootkit is what got rid of Poweliks but still have Blinkxcore. I have moved on to a different computer. All I have to do now is get logged onto FC2. I will take my good computer in this weekend and have it fixed. Thanks Nov 19, 2014 14:06:37 GMT -5
skallagrim91: Hope they get it sorted for you quickly, Doinkster. Been looking for a program to do it: Spyhunter will, but only the paid version can remove, otherwise specific removal tools seem elusive, without manually going into the guts of the OS. Sorry about that. Nov 19, 2014 15:14:59 GMT -5
rickrybicki: Looks like Sparkworkz is fixed. :clap: Nov 20, 2014 20:43:50 GMT -5
kala2500: You may be right. Nov 21, 2014 7:05:15 GMT -5
compscure: still seems the same to me Nov 21, 2014 13:11:38 GMT -5
rickrybicki: Try to log in again Nov 21, 2014 20:21:11 GMT -5
compscure: Is it really working okay for everyone now? I'm logged out and cannot log in thru the menu bar or the login page ID36 linked to. Logging out and in over at FC1 gets me part way-- the "fc2 profile" butto here on the boards takes me to a page that shows Nov 22, 2014 14:52:46 GMT -5
compscure: my stats (# of designs, levels, etc) so it knows who I am. But I do not get the normal profile page and can't play levels. argh Nov 22, 2014 14:53:54 GMT -5
kala2500: It worked normally yesterday, but now it's again like ***t. Nov 22, 2014 15:08:54 GMT -5
skallagrim91: It was good for most of the day, and I was finally able to take advantage and get a level done. At the end though it went back to same sluggish response, and took a few attempts to save. Nov 22, 2014 15:41:15 GMT -5
inventeur61: I keep my permanently connected section,if I disconnected,after I can not login and today he is slow Nov 22, 2014 17:33:35 GMT -5
rickrybicki: No problem logging in but needing to reload many times Nov 22, 2014 18:08:22 GMT -5
