    Well, I'm setting some sort of a record for the most problems in one day. Now, Softronic has hacked my Yahoo mail account. When I go to Yahoo's main page and then click on my mail, a Softronics page hijacks the email page. It doesn't happen every time but has happened several times this evening. I tried to do a system restore only to find that I can't locate a system restore on this OS (Windows 8). Very bizarre because I found it yesterday. (Have only had this computer a few days.)

    Immediately before the hacking began, I had been trying to delete the hot corners feature of Windows 8. Actually, have been trying on and off since this afternoon. I installed registry changes according to the protocol I found on at least half a dozen sites, including Softronics. I also downloaded Classic Shell. Other recent changes have been to download Microsoft Office from my disk, VistaBootPro32 from the net, and Skype.

    I tried to run GMER twice, with no luck. The cursor froze even tho all other windows were closed. There was a notification that GMER has found system modification, etc. I wasn't able to uncheck IAT/EAT. The program was totally unresponsive.

    One other thing I should mention is that this computer seems awfully slow for being brand new. Having issues with sticking cursor as well. The latter I could put down to the learning curve except that my old computer was also a Dell and I'm pretty familiar with the touchpad controls.

    Following are the Hijack This, DDs, and Attach logs, followed by the system information .

    Many thanks for your help.

    Jane

    You have installed the Softonic (probably inadvertently) extension in Firefox after downloading software from the Softonic website.

    To remove the extension, open Firefox, click Tools > Add-ons > Extensions.

    Find the Softonic extension and uninstall it.


    It's also set as your homepage in Internet Explorer. You may want to delete that as well.

    Hi again,

    I spoke too soon. I deleted Softronic from Firefox and also reset the home page in Explorer. I still was redirected to Softronic. So I went into View and Manage Addons and under Search Providers I found Bing and Softronic. Both said disabled but Softronic, of course, wasn't since it still redirected me when I opened Yahoo. I was able to delete Bing but Softronic won't allow me to delete it. It says it's the default search provider. I've looked for Softronic in my list of programs so I could delete it there but it's not showing up.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Jane

    Please download AdwCleaner.

    Save the program to your desktop.

    Run it and select Delete.

    A report will open in Notepad after the scan.

    Please copy and paste it into your next reply.

    That looks like it took care of Softonic. Can you confirm?

    By the way, do be careful when installing software, especially free one. It will very often offer to install toolbars and other add-ons. Most of the time, you do have the choice to accept the installation or not. Just be sure not to agree to it.

    Phantom010 has provided you with some good info about downloading free software, I offer one more caution.

    Avoid during the installation process what is often called an "Express" install. Instead, chose the "Custom" install where you will be given the opportunity to uncheck pre-checked boxes to install things like what you have just been through (toolbars, browsers, etc). Free usually comes at a price, you just have to know what that price is.

    Thanks, Raybro. That's something I wasn't aware of at all. Will always click custom from now on.
