Malware

I keep getting a popup wanting me to download some program from 'usync.nexage.com'.  I always cancel the download.  I checked out the address on google and know that it is malware of some sort.  How do I block them?

Re: Malware

Hello rickles. Another user is having a similar issue here in this thread. Download Malwarebytes free version and run a full scan. Please let us know how things worked out for you.

Cheers

Re: Malware

Hello again rickles. I'm following up to see what your status is. Have you installed an ad blocker in your browser(s)?

Re: Malware

The problem went away on its own.  But, I did do a malware scan with the 'Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool' and 'System Mechanic Malware Killer' with no detections of malware.  I also have 'uBlock origin'.

I do find it a bit ironic that on a Norton forum that someone suggests using Malwarebytes.

Anyway, thanks for following up on it.

No single security product can protect you 100% of the time from 100% the tens of thousands of malware variants released every day. We suggest a secondary scan with the Free version of Malwarebytes because MBAM can focus more on PUP/PUAs that Norton often does not focus on. The users and gurus here have experience with that product. It does not conflict with Norton when run as an on demand scanner. Some users even run the full version with no conflicts.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Re: Malware

I agree entirely with peterweb's comments. Norton has great products but there are so many variants of malware and adware out there and, as peterweb states, no one product can protect from all. Malwarebytes is a useful ammunition tool.

I would also like to say that through the knowledge of members in these forums (some advanced like peterweb, some novices like me) solutions can be worked out to many of these issues.  Let's all stick together and help each other out..... amen to that
