    F'd up browser, some buttons not working... Help!

    So I installed and used adwcleaner to rid myself of some adware and now my browsers (all of them have the same problems) are not working properly:

    First, web pages take much much longer to load. then some buttons and some functions are not working! Some search bars I can write on them but I can't press the search button and pressing 'enter' doesn't do anything either. This completely breaks some pages like google+ and some of youtube as well... What happened?! Did adwcleaner just delete some important stuff thinking it was a virus?
    I am a God in the making, report any glitches and bugs. We appreciate your feedback!
    If I thought gods were real, I would definitely let some of them touch me.

    Be aware that some so called anti adware programs were actually ad ware droppers,you might search the term fake adware cleaners.

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    Re: F'd up browser, some buttons not working... Help!

    remove adwcleaner.

    Install a clean browser
    https://www.opera.com
    should work. If you have it already then I'll find another.

    If the clean browser works then save everything of value from your other browsers and then delete and re-install them one at a time. This may be an issue with Microsoft Edge which doesn't delete well. The following link
    https://www.howtogeek.com/237527/how...in-Windows-10/
    goes over how to reset Edge. Hopefully, you don't need to use Powershell.

    If the clean browser does not work or you can't actually install it, then let us know. Some particularly happy go lucky malware likes to play games with DNS settings. If that is the case then things might be a little bit more special.

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    I managed to repair everything with a windows repair toolkit. The adwcleaner did it job... Deleting key registry and some windows stuff.

    you might have to keep an eye on things,had one keep popping back up after a while, had to do a very deep clean on that one.

    - - - Updated - - -

    at times it is good to do a disk image backup,to restore things.

    Well. It came back. It's an adware that pops ads into my browsers. My adblocker blocks them all, but I use some applications for videogame streaming that have integrated microbrowsers and those do not support ad blocking plugins.

    ... And heck, it's malware. I don't want that on my PC. Tried installing Opera, got infected on first startup.

    ADWcleaner, Malwarebytes, AVG and avast do not detect the virus. Though from time to time, Malwarebytes will pop up saying "Site blocked, it's been hijacked" or something like that. So he kind of realizes there's something, but nothing turns out in the scans.

    I really don't want to pay 50€ for a technician to come to my house. I don't have that kind of money.

    Re: F'd up browser, some buttons not working... Help!

    So the minimally invasive option

    Use


    https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-chan...indows-2626242

    To change your DNS setting to 8.8.8.8 and pray that you don't actually have a virus active on your machine and that you're just dealing with modified DNS settings. DNS settings control how your browsers interprets web address, so if I control the server that you go to for it then I can screw you over even if I don't have active malware on your system.

    The highly invasive option is to save everything of value, reset Windows (if you aren't on Win 10 then you really won't enjoy doing this) and then reload your programs.

    The latter option is safer but the former has worked at least temporarily for me once before and if opera has been modded instantly then you may be dealings with DNS shenanigans.

    EDIT:

    The moderately invasive option is that I find a convenient tutorial on the creation of a bootable anti-virus on the chance that you have a rootkit.

    Oh my, I completely forgot about updating this thread. My excuses, thanks anunitu for reminding me.

    I had to do a system restore to a previous date. I rolled back to a couple of days that I suspect the infection happened. All is working properly now. didn't loose much data in the process either.
