Visually), immediately sounding the alarm.
Feykovye Yamdex retrieval system without permission prescribed in the start page of all browsers, has been installed on your PC, and, accordingly, «expels» trusted, real Google, Bing, Yandex and others.

4. Activate the box «Run:», only this time select another directory — «% WinDir% \ System32 \ GroupPolicy».
5. In the same way (as described in paragraphs №2 and №3 this manual), remove it from all of the files / folders.
6. Once again, open the «Run». Enter the command — gpupdate / force (update user policy).
Also, folders cleaning can be done using the Windows command line. For this:
1. Press the «Win» or click on the icon «Start».
2. At the prompt: type CMD and press «ENTER».
3. At the command prompt, type the following commands sequentially:
- RD / S / Q «% WinDir% \ System32 \ GroupPolicyUsers» (general settings);
- RD / S / Q «% WinDir% \ System32 \ GroupPolicy»;
- gpupdate / force (update).
Or copy the text of the article (in turn) Directive and insert the command prompt (right-click context menu → → Paste).
Cleaning the registry
- Start the Registry Editor: Start → regedit (panel line) → ENTER.
- Activate in the window editor search function: Edit → Find.
- Set in the search box — yamdex. Run the registry scan button «Find Next.»
- Remove the detected record with the address of malicious service and then continue the search — key «F3».
- Perform cleaning as long as the editor does not tell you that the entire registry is checked.
Restore browser shortcuts
Quite often Yamdex, like most viruses it browser, change the property label — attributes additional settings to the executable file. Get rid of them help utility FixerBro. It automatically checks the properties of all the available shortcuts and removes all unnecessary malicious «tails» in their records.
- Download FixerBro sofsayta -safezone.cc/resources/fixerbro.106/ and run.
