    Thank for for the tips. I tried all of these actions, and I still seem to have the malware installed in AOL Desktop software. 9.8.0

    The specific popup ads I see are postback_ifr (1 x 1). Usually in groups of three at a time.

    The AOL popup blocker is on, and the reported browser in AOL is Chromium.

      Hey Greg,
      can you please take a look once again, on your Control Panel Uninstall Programs’ List and check for any suspicious applications, installed about the date you’ve noticed the infection (some applications could have no publisher, version etc.) Check and remove (if any were found) these applications, next reset again the web browsers (all of them) and finally, download and run the following Shortcut cleaner:

    Hi:

    No unwanted or unrecognized programs and no shortcuts were repaired by the tool.

    I have a screen shot, of the popups, but there does not seem to be a way to attach it to the note.

    1. Jason Smith / Post Author

      Hey again Greg,
      can you please check if there are files in the following folders – they depends on the operating system:

      C:\Windows\SysWOW64\GroupPolicy\
      C:\Windows\SysWOW64\GroupPolicyUsers\

      C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\
      C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicyUsers\

      If there are some file there – you should delete them, then reset your Google Chrome once again and check if there are some extensions – they should be disabled, however please remove them, just by clicking the recycle bin icon near the extension, also don’t forget to remove the extension for all accounts – including the one for all users.

      regards

    Thanks again,.

    I checked all of those places; there were no files there (hidden or otherwise).

    I’ve reset all of the browsers and still have the postback_ifr popups appearing in my AOL desktop software.
