Customer Question

How do I uninstall d.yimg.com from my computer? It keeps popping up every time I try to open an email message. I originally downloaded bearshare.com to access music, but uninstall it. But it did not effectively eliminate this d.yimg site.

Ok.

I see several adware and trozan virus being deleted by malwarebytes.Your system is severely infected.

Now download and run combofix

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Download and run ccleaner free

http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

Post combofix log and how's the system behaving after the runs.

Ps.:

All tools and download links i give are free..so if youa re asked to pay for some tool dont do so..Contact me back.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
After I downloaded Malware , I removed all the viruses identified by Malware. I will now download and run combofix then download and run cclearer free as recommended by you. Will this continue to just resolve my issue to get ride of d.yming because it still shows up?

Combofix would not run the program unless I removed my MyAfee Internet Security. This process has become to complicated and troublesome, therefore I do not believe you can reslove my issue. Consequently, I do not expect any charges to be billed to my credit card.
Expert:  lifesaver replied 2 years ago.
Wow.

You really want to give up. An infected system only results in loss of personal information and identity theft.

I have seen worse..You can get a second opinion from any other computer expert.

Anyway i will let the final decision with you..
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Combofix subsequently advised that the prorgam was in run mode, so it was activated. I proceeded to download ccleaner free. During the process of registering Optimizer Pro, I was requested to pay for the service. You advised me to notify you if payment was requested since free on your end. I am not quiting yet, so please advise where I go from here.
Expert:  lifesaver replied 2 years ago.

Ok.

 

Thanks for returning back..You need to stick with me till all the virus is removed.d.yimg.com i can help you remove it in one shot..

 

But i need your remove all the infections in the system first.Now Optimizer Pro is not the software i wanted to run.The virus seems to be redirecting you to a wrong website..

 

Now can you please download and install hijack this from link below:
