How to get rid of DomalQ malware

[ Articles » Microsoft Windows ]

DomalQ malware gets installed when you install a flash player which was NOT downloaded from Adobe.

I am not saying that all flash players found in the wild are malware, but the one from Tuggu definitely is.

The download manager on your browser will show that the file was downloaded from nicdls.com or something similar.

To uninstall this malware do the following:

Open terminal window as administrator
go to the following folder - C:\Users\userprofile\AppData\Local\Temp
(userprofile is the name of your profile folder)

The dir command will show you a folder named DIQ which may look empty and when you try to delete it, you will get an error stating folder is no empty.

Execute the command 'rmdir /s /q DIQ'
Download superantispyware and perform a 'complete' scan.
