Malwarebytes can detect and remove Adware.Yelloader without further user interaction.

  1. Please download Malwarebytes to your desktop.
  2. Double-click MBSetup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  3. When your Malwarebytes for Windows installation completes, the program opens to the Welcome to Malwarebytes screen.
  4. Click on the Get started button.
  5. Click Scan to start a Threat Scan.
  6. Click Quarantine to remove the found threats.
  7. Reboot the system if prompted to complete the removal process.

If the infection keeps coming back, the rootkit components may need to be removed by Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit BETA before the regular Malwarebytes scanner can take care of the rest. This is usually true for users that get an error “Requested resource is in use.”
