The actual link is also dead for anything to download to my PC.

 

You will probably have to go to a forum like Bleeping Computer, the Malware Removal forum, where the removal group will ask you to do logging etc to see what is loading etc. on your PC.

Hello everyone,

After a thoroughfully search and some translations of the japanese website related with the topic, I found out somehow the solution. All I needed to do was to run the task scheduler and erase the annoying task linked to mshta.exe.

 

Lesson I learned never feel curious of searching through japanese porn links:smileytongue:.
