Ok so I downloaded opera after the scan was done, and in the end there were 25 infected files! Most of them were Trojans and PUPs! Thanks for your help!

AnimeTofuOk, so far MalwareBytes found 7 infected objects.

Did MalwareBytes remove them, or do you have to do something? Maybe check the location of where they were, and find out what is causing it.

Remove them. And continue the scan, I once had amazingly 4137 viruses.


I don't think that is something to brag about

I am letting the scan do what it needs to and I will remove all 11 infected files. I noticed most of them were from my temporary internet files. I'm good with computers in all but sometimes I have to ask things.

If you download a bunch of programs, you're bound to get them, because people slip those into programs to get money.

I hope it isn't the mods I downloaded. I doubt it, but I may have gotten something else from Adfly? I doubt Minecraft Comes Alive and Aether II would have anything to do with this?

mods are illegal so this could mean mojang caught you

are you an idiot? mods are in no way illegal and mojang even mentions that you are allowed to make them in its EULA.

Lol.There's a Mods page on MC forums, which is an affiliate of Mojang. Also an official site.

@OP
when it opens up a new tab for you, is the page some League of Angels thing?

It's either an adware program or browser add-on you installed downloading something. These are easy to remove, just look in your programs and see if there is a useless one, then delete it, and look in your add-ons and see if there is a spam one. It has nothing to do with PMC. Other then maybe an ad you clicked on.

Hey, you just gave me an idea. Virus competition anyone?

(A bunch of people compete to try and get the most viruses on their machine before time runs out)

Not sure that is safe, but maybe on a virtual machine or something? I wouldn't recommend that though...

Maybe buy some computers especially for the competition (they don't have to be gaming quality or anything, just basic laptops) or have, like, 5 anti viruses running at once while you do the competition? "Hey guys, avast! and Norton just caught 7 more viruses, I'm in the lead "

It would probably be best to run a virus scan. If that it turns up with nothing, try disabling pop-ups.

Has something installed itself to the browser you're using? You might be able to check your add-ons and see if anything looks odd.

Ok I will do the virus scan, but what browser do you recommend? I am currently using firefox.

Any browser. You may have accidentally gotten some unwanted browser addons.

Do a virus scan and/or try using a new browser.
