There is virus that is occurring that pops up a webpage that is very difficullt to close. It pertends to be a Microsoft Support site, but uses what seem to be random letter .us domains.



Underbars added for safety.

Browser = Firefox 52.1.2
Computer = Dell Insperon 530

It's my mother's computer, she's 93, and doesn't need much.

No thoughts? My mother is getting pretty tired of the interruptions and having to call me to clear the computer.

Being that XP machines are no longer receiving OS updates, your machine will always be vulnerable to threats, so we are really wasting time cleansing your machine.

No matter the reason you keep XP, this machine will always be susceptible to infection.


Please download AdwCleaner from here and save it to your desktop.
  • Run AdwCleaner and select Scan
  • Once the Scan is done, select Clean
  • Once done it will ask to reboot, please allow the reboot.
  • On reboot, a log will be produced. It can also be found at C:\AdwCleaner\AdwCleaner[C#].txt
  • Please copy/paste the contents of the log in your next reply.
Our services are free, but you may contribute to the author of ComboFix via PayPal

I'm not interest in All Possible Infections, I'm interested in just this one.

However, AdwCleaner will probably solve the problem.

I will post back when I get the log.

Thanks for your help.

Hello bluewizard.


Please note that these fixes are not instantaneous. Most infections require more than one round to properly eradicate.

Please stay with me until given the 'all clear' even if symptoms seemingly abate.

Kindly follow my instructions and please do no fixing on your own or running of scanners unless requested by a helper.


If there are any personal files, pics, etc. on your computer you cannot live without, back them up now just as a precaution.

Please download ComboFix and Save it to your Desktop.

**Note: It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**

Disable all antivirus and antispyware programs. Get help here

Double-click ComboFix.exe and follow the prompts to run it.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed.
  • With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal.
  • It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
  • When prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

ComboFix will now automatically install the Windows Recovery Console onto your computer, which will show up as a new option when booting up your computer. Do not select the Windows Recovery Console option when you start your computer unless requested to by a helper.

Once the Recovery Console is installed, this blue window will appear:

  • Please click Yes to continue scanning for malware.
  • Your desktop may go blank. This is normal. It will return when ComboFix is done.
  • ComboFix may reboot your machine. This is normal.
  • When the tool is finished, it will produce a log for you.

Please post that log, C:\ComboFix.txt, in your next reply.

Please re-enable your antivirus before posting the ComboFix.txt log.
