    Omiga Plus infection Windows 8.1 IE11

    Hi Guys (and girls)

    So my friend has a Compaq laptop reinstalled OS Windows 8.1 (running Avast A/V) all latest updates automatic.

    Some how his machine even though just re-formatted as Windows was just displaying a black screen, well the new problem Omiga plus has appeared and I managed to remove it from Chrome, but not IE 11 - I've tried everything I can think of from running Hijackthis and running Malwarebytes to resetting the browser deleting all data and reset the browser and deleting Omiga registry entries.

    Apart from creating a new profile or formatting again (which I am reluctant too do as it's working fine apart from IE, Simple solution would be to use Chrome. But I don't know if the user will accidentally run IE)

    Actually I am going to try a new profile, please note I may not be able reply asap. But I will attempt to reply in a timely manner.

    Thanks folks
    ZL

    malwarebyte, Adwcleaner and JRT [Junkware Removal Tool] are a great combination.
    What one does not get the other does.

    I didn't try the JRT but everything is running well for now - I'll keep them that in mind, I am suppose to be getting another laptop for my personal use for free. The machine is running like a dog hopefully it's just a virus might even reload the O/S... Just prey it's not a hardware fault, I suppose I can replace the hdd or update memory if required :/.

    Thanks

    I just run all three to make darn sure.

    Now what I run for a second opinion on virus

    Download Sophos Free Virus Removal Tool and save it to your desktop.

    • Double click the icon and select Run
    • Click Next
    • Select I accept the terms in this license agreement, then click Next twice
    • Click Install
    • Click Finish to launch the program
    • Once the virus database has been updated click Start Scanning
    • If any threats are found click Details, then View log file... (bottom left hand corner
