Is this a virus or not?

Geplaatst

Always when I start my computer Firefox opens and I don't even have Firefox installed on my PC. I can't see the tab but it has a weird description. Has anyone encountered something like this ever again??

Do a malware check with several malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.

Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware. All these programs have free versions.

Make sure you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.

Thank you :) I did a scan with ADWCleaner and Malwarebytes and it turns out this weird Firefox is a PUP.Optional.FakeFFProfile. Now I work out to get rid of it :D

Thank you very much for your fast answer!
