How to remove?

4 posts in this topic

After running malwarebytes it says i have 3 virus's.

Two in the registry key and one in registry value.

Adware.MyWebSearch = Registry Key

Rogue.AntiVirus2008 = Registy Key

Trojan.Agent = Registry Value

Is it safe to just remove or do i have to do something special?

Hello, and welcome to Malwarebytes, mossypne:

Sorry to hear that your computer may be infected.

Alas, we cannot work on malware detection/removal in this part of the General MBAM forum.

Please read the following to get started on the cleaning process:

  • Excellent, self-help troubleshooting info for getting MBAM to run on an infected machine can be found here.
  • And there are specific, self-help malware removal instructions here.

If you would like expert assistance with cleaning your system, there are 3 support options from which to choose:

  • Option 1 -- Free, Expert advice in the Malware Removal Forum
  • Option 2 -- Free support for paying customers using MBAM PRO -- Contact MBAM Support via email
  • Option 3 -- Premium, Fee-Based Support


As we don't deal with malware removal in this General MBAM Forum, you need to start a topic in the Malware Removal forum so that a qualified helper can help you fix any malware related problems/infections you may have.

  • First, please print out, read and follow the directions here, skipping any steps you are unable to complete.
  • If the infection has so crippled the computer that you cannot follow most/all of the requested steps, then please just proceed as advised below:
  • Then please post a NEW topic in the Malware Removal forum.
  • When posting your new thread, please make sure that, under "options", you select Track this topic and choose Immediate Email Notification, so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.
  • One of the expert helpers there will give you free, one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please do NOT make any further changes to your computer such as (Install/Uninstall programs; use special fix tools; delete files; edit the registry; OR use temp file cleaners, etc...) unless advised by a malware removal helper. Doing so can result in system changes which may hinder the attempts by a helper to clean your machine.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please DO NOT post back to your topic or "bump" it within the first 48 hours.

Replying to your own posts changes the post count from zero. Helpers are looking for topics with zero replies. If you reply to your own post, helpers may think that you're already being helped and thus may overlook your post. This will only delay your obtaining assistance.

  • o If there is no reply from any experts after 48 hours, you can reply to the topic, asking for help again.
    o You may send a Private Message to a Moderator asking for assistance.


Alternatively, as a paying customer using MBAM PRO, you can contact the help desk at or here.


If you would like to use the Malwarebytes Premium Services (Comprehensive solutions to all your computer support needs -- from installation and set-up to troubleshooting and tune-ups), please go to the Malwarebytes Premium Services support site.

Please be patient -- someone will assist you as soon as it is possible.

Thanks very much!


PS: Please use the zMn2t.jpg button instead of other ones when you reply here and at the other forums, so that it will be easier to read. :)

You are most welcome.

Please be sure to read the "I'm Infected" sticky pinned to the top of the malware removal forum.

Now that you have already started a new topic there, it would be best NOT to reply to it with the logs at this time.

That would change the reply count from 0 and could inadvertently give the impression to the malware experts that you are already being helped.

You can, however, run the DDS, GMER and MBAM scans and just keep the logs until your helper asks for them.

If you have trouble running the scans b/c of the infection, then just sit tight & wait for your helper to assist you.

Please be patient -- it can take up to 48 hours for someone to take your case, especially when it's busy.

Hope you get fixed up soon!

Best regards,
