Removing Getprivate malware

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am having lots of problems with ads popping up and slowing down my computer. They seem to originate in malware called Getprivate. I have tried various things to try to remove it but with no success: the Superantispyware removes the threats after a scan but they immediately reappear. I cannot identify the program in the Uninstall Programs option nor in the running processes in order to delete it. There seems to be much discussion recently on this malware on the web, but also with suspicious links, procedures and indications to scan computer with Spyhunter and then buy it. Help would be greatly appreciated! Quick scan log attached in case it is helpful.

Hi Row,
Those threats are just tracking cookies nothing to worry about there.
However, Spyhunter is rogueware (snake oil) do not go near it.
Please download and run adwcleaner,
Select Scan
Then select Clean
Computer will restart and give you a text file please attach that text here.


Please download Farbar Scan and Recovery Tool


FRST 32bit


FRST 64bit


Make sure the "Additional.txt" box is checked and select Scan


Post both logs back here.

Hello Row,


I have created an unwanted program detection for GetPrivate. Database version 11996 will be released within the next few hours. Update to version 11996, then click System Tools->Uninstall Unwanted Programs (a restart of SAS may be necessary).


Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns,
