Question

Posted

Using Waterfox 16.0.1 today while I was browsing I noticed that this share bar was down in the bottom right corner in every window. I checked all the addon's, nothing new there. I have not installed any new programs, and I checked the stylish scripts as well as greasemonkey scripts, and there are not any new ones in there either. Does anyone have any idea where this came from and/or how to remove it?

Edit: I loaded Waterfox in safe mode and it disappears

You could probably hit the 'alt' key then view- toolbars...then customize and try dragging it out from the bar.

It's not a bug, it's a feature. Lol.

In seriousness, those look like bookmarks to me. I'd check there too.

OK, so I found this mysterious script attempting to run from a website io40.com which I can not find any information about, if I mark it as untrusted in noscript it does not show up.

There's been a modification to the browsers configuration data (about:config in Firefox).

I had a similar issue on a friends laptop. They previously had Avast installed, and must have downloaded an installer from the net that also prompted them to install AVG. I am not sure if the AVG that installed was a legitimate version - it changed the home page in all browsers to it's own AVG search page, and the only way to change back to the users default home page was to reset the browser. Home page settings in the browsers standard settings/preferences panel had no effect when changed. Navigating to google.com.au also re-routed to this AVG search site (in all browsers)!

I think resetting the browser is the only way you're going to fix this (but you could also search through about:config yourself). Remember to back up your profile first!

Thanks to whomever deleted my post ... :rolleyes:

I had the same bar show up.

I found this about a similar name: [url="http://www.firewhois.com/whois/io30.com"]http://www.firewhois.../whois/io30.com[/url]

I followed jnelson's clue, and went to Firefox Options, both Content & Privacy tabs.

I added www.io40.com to the Blocked lists.

It has now disappeared from Firefox 17.x ...

Have you checked in your profile folder to see if anything recent has shown up? There's an article at [url="http://mzl.la/NYhKHH"]http://mzl.la/NYhKHH[/url] that explains how to find it. It looks like either something another application threw in there or possibly a drive-by. You mentioned AVG and Hum's screenshot indicates he's using it as well.

^ Thanks.

I use AVG too.

But I am using the regular Firefox 17.x -- whereas jNelson is using Waterfox 16.x.

I don't know how much of a difference there is between the two.

My bar did not show up until this morning.

I did not have it all yesterday, or last night.

I really do not see anything odd in this report. Also to clear something up: I do not use AVG, I never have used it, I am using Kaspersky Pure, Waterfox used to come with the AVG stuff bundled, but that has been discontinued.

But I am using the regular Firefox 17.x -- whereas jNelson is using Waterfox 16.x.

I don't know how much of a difference there is between the two.

My bar did not show up until this morning.

I did not have it all yesterday, or last night.

I think everything from release to experimental builds uses %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox as the profile directory.

@jnelson: Did you run HJT as administrator? There are a bunch of "file missing" warnings in your log.

I do not install or use any toolbars.

I have updated to Firefox 18.

Ran a malware scan. Removed 8 things.

Did an Error check.

All clear. :)

Note: The AVG scan and removal of Java exploits, also damaged the Java files.

Had to do a Reinstall of Java.

Now this is odd, I have the address blocked via noscript and that works just fine (for FF), however, it still shows up in IE and Chrome. I attempted to add the address to the host file but that does not seem to work. Also as noted before: I did run a virus and malware scan and nothing shows up, but something has taken over IE's default start page (see screenshot)
[attachment=325142:IE.PNG]
I have checked the installed programs and can not locate anything with the name claro search. According to a search online, Claro search is malware, and that I can uninstall it from the control panel (which is not there) and then I can restore IE to default setting from internet options, which I did and it did not fix the issue.

^ I would temp. install and run Adw-Cleaner.

Did you look at the Task Manager processes running when 'claro' pops up ?

You should be able to see an odd program, find it, and Delete.

[url="http://malwaretips.com/blogs/claro-search-virus/"]http://malwaretips.c...o-search-virus/[/url]

[b]Claro Search[/b] is an adware program that has changed your browser home page and default search engine to [i]claro-search.com[/i]. Apart from this unwanted changes, Claro Search has added a useless toolbar on your browser and whenever your are doing a search,it will display on the first search results their own ads.

Claro Search got on your computer [i]after you have installed [u]another[/u] program that had bundled in their installer[/i] the Claro Search.
You should always pay attention when installing software because often, a software installer includes optional installs, such as this Claro Search. Be very careful what you agree to install. Always opt for the custom installation and deselect anything that is not familiar, especially optional software that you never wanted to download and install in the first place. It goes without saying that you should not install software that you don

You use/recommend Ad-aware and AVG? What, did you stop updating your programs in 2006? Both are junk now. Use MalwareBytes and ComboFix to scan. Then ditch AVG and use MSE or Avast.

I have MWB and Kaspersky Pure. I have run both on the OS drive and nothing pops up. Hum- When I have IE open there is no claro process running. So I have no clue where this is coming from.

^ This site does a pretty thorough explanation of getting rid of Claro:

[url="http://malwaretips.com/blogs/claro-search-virus/"]http://malwaretips.c...o-search-virus/[/url]

As I quoted above, Claro could have installed as part of [u]some[/u] [u]other[/u] program.

Look at what programs you may have recently added.


And Adw-Cleaner seems to be a good detection and removal proggy.

You might, but Hum doesn't. Try ComboFix from BleepingComputer.com
