Specs: Window 7
Hello, I have a computer Windows 7, Intel inside Core i5, a VAIO computer. My computer suddenly had a random program called Hades, and I've tried to uninstall it, but it doesn't show me or allows me to, and my computer just suddenly shuts down, even when I turn it on, it just reboot without even letting the loading screen to load itself. I deleted Google Chrome to see if that was the problem, but the program is still there, and now I can't download Google again because Internet Explorer doesn't allow me or even show me the download button. Can someone please tell me how to fully delete the program that is causin to download other random programs? This is the only computer I got and I don't want to lose any of my files. Please help ASAP.

Doth indeed sound it came from down below...

This link discusses getting rid of it; and also other similar pests.

They mention adwcleaner, malwarebytes, RKill not the least; and these are "safe" to use and frequently advised here.

You may also need to run (and I would) the Kaspersky Rescue Disk. Donwload the free ISO; burn to a DVD; boot with the DVD. It's a Linux based disk which loads itself into RAM only. It will go online to update itself and then scan the entire hard drive. It can often deal more successfully with pests that can manage to secure/secrete themselves within windows when its booted up.

and this is a more complete "how to re" Kaspersky Rescue Disk:

Whenever you install "anything" downloaded from the web, "never" allow it to install via the Automatic option; "always" use the Manual/Custom potion. Carefully check to see that there are no pre-checked boxes when you instal the app/utility; ensure you have only the box for the item itself and nothing more. That way you avoid installing al manner of "stuff" you neither want nor need. Much of that stuff makes changes to settings various; much of it can be more than that and a real PAI to eradicate... And I suspect you acquired the calling card Hades" via a download/install...

Also if you haven't already; safeguard your personal files regularly by copying to external storage. Typically DVD (a least) but an external hard drive too is nice(r). Regularly check and update the copies too. Why do this copy/safeguard routine? Should you ever be unable to boot up, or otherwise access data on the hard drive, then the bulk of it will be safe elsewhere; and also a more options re' restoring a normal working system.

✔ Best Answer
Hades is adware/malware that comes bundled with other software. More than likely, you recently downloaded & installed something, but didn't pay close attention during the installation process. Here's how to remove it:

Well, I'm trying to get in the Internet Explorer, however, as I try to type the website it rapidly starts to rebbot. Even when I turned it on, it just rebooted right away. I deleted Google Chrome but now I can't download it again. Is rebooting like crazy.

Download the ISO, create the disk, and boot with the Kaspersky Rescue Disk - to which I referred earlier above.

After-which reboot the system and try to get into safe-mode; also try last known good config. If you can boot up via either of the last two options - download the other windows compatible utilities mentioned earlier; save them to a folder on the hard drive. Then install/run them that way then run the scans as suggested.

Failing which... First take steps to safeguard your personal files/data.; again via the browser within the Rescue Disk?

The Kaspersky Rescue Disk can be made on any working computer; and then you can use it to boot up the damaged system etc. as above.

If the Rescue Disk won't allow downloads etc.,. then (on another computer) download a free ISO for ubuntu (; burn to a DVD; boot with that DVD. That does have a browser and also allows creation of DVDs, so you can copy/safeguard your files that way. Ubuntu is another Linux variant - and free.

Then recovering a working Windows system can proceed without risk to personal files etc. (as they will have been stored off the system).

If it as seems - you "are "able to boot up to some degree, but IE causes the system to reboot (?) then try Firefox browser. You may have to download the browser on another system; copy the (setup) file to your damaged system - via usb-flash drive - then install Firefox; and then try to get onto the web?

"Is rebooting like crazy"

Could be a hardware problem rather than a software problem. Try tapping F8 & see if you can enter Safe Mode.

My problem has been solved. I've finally deleted Hades and my computer has stopped restarting over and over again. Now the only thing left is Google, I have managed to download it but now it has a lot of adds that makes it slow. But thank you guys for the programs and for the revouninstaller, it helped me to delete not only hades, but other hidden ones. Thank you again. :)

I would advise you to run the clean out utils nonetheless. Revo won't have found a lit of stuff you don't know is there.

Adblock will help stop adds/popups etc.

Free or pay what you feel it's worth to you...

Currently Yahoo have tweaked their software to stop Adblock in Safari blocking their forced ads via yahoo email. Firefox isn't affected though...

Adblock is easily disabled or even uninstalled if it becomes an issue for you.

AEstis, I suspect you will still have hidden stuff, I can check these logs for you.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it onto your Desktop. If your default download location is not the Desktop, drag it out of it's location onto the Desktop.
If we have to run Farbar more than once, refer this SS.
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the Desktop.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt).
The logs are large, upload them using Zippy ( No account/registration needed ) or upload to a site of your choosing. Give us the links please.
