Hi dear folks,
The dangerous virus like Trojan appears back again, whenever I go to (you tube) web surfing at noontime; By the way I just recovered from the serious virus attack (File extension code problem) more than a week ago, and in the meantime I got avast virus scanner, Malwarebyets and antispyware on my PC, but the virus is keep coming from the you tube at noon time by knocking out those protection. And whenever I go to you tube for watching & downloading video that time lots of pops up advertise hanging around in the screen.
How do I safely watch and download video from you tube?
I will be waiting for your reply!

Sounds like you still have a nasty on there - using YouTube is not a high risk.

Try Running Rkill from Safe Mode. Before Exitting from Rkill run MalwareBytes
again (while still in Safe Mode).

Running CCleaner Lite might help aleviate the symptoms a bit (not a fix tho).

When you get this sorted either set yourself up as a limited user or install "Drop My Rights" from MS. No XP user should use the Internet as a full Admin user.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Time to reload the OS from OEM media. Get all updates on it. Get a single professional security suite installed. Learn and use as many best practices as you can to avoid this. Any lan computer or usb flash may be the source of this issue.

Hang up and live.

Re#4
By downloading and saving onto the HD to watch later, pirating probably, but I've never hit a virus by doing so. Having said that I've not had a virus since 1999 (Win 95) so I'm pretty careful. I put "Drop My Rights" on XP soon after I had it so that probably helped too. If ever I'm suspicious I clear my TIF's because that is often the first port of a virus call.

When some folk say "downloading" they mean just watching online, so it can get a bit confusing.

If you are using a downloader are you sure that is safe?

Hi Derek,
I am using Real Player to download some educational video from you tube, as far as I observe that it doesn’t bring any malicious program or virus at night time and whenever I go to you tube website at day/noon time, it starts give some sort of malicious/Trojan program.
Thanks for your reply!

There is a down loader that will do it through a script online. keepvid. I put videos on YouTube that are not copy write protected jay_nar2012, so it really just depends. Technically the original up loader would more likely be the copy write infringee

There are stacks of free YouTube downloaders around. I use "YouTube Downloader" because it keeps up with YouTube's frequent updates.

Whatever, I don't know why you are getting these issues using RealPlayer.

Re # 7
I tried to download & use free you tube down loader from the web but it didn’t give me complete working software, so I deleted it, then I searched and found the real player down loader from the web, it is very fast.
Re # 10
Hi Derek, I am assuming that it might be the google chrome web browser problem, whenever I click google chrome; it brings some search engine like bleko spam free search, yahoo search & searchnu.com.
I have a question to you if I have to use Rkill & drop my rights, is it free software? Should I download from its website? lastly let me know kindly the youtube downloader web info!
Thanks for reply!

RealPlayer is a known spyware/adware distributor & has been doing it for over 10 yrs. I wouldn't even think of installing any of their products on my PC. Nor would I ever install Chrome on my PC, for the same reasons & more.

I'm with jefro, wipe the HDD & reinstall the OS from scratch. And do NOT reinstall RealPlayer!

I have the same view as #12 about RealPlayer, although I rather doubt it is the cause of this particular issue.

Re #11.
Both "Rkill" and "Drop My Rights" are free. "Drop My Rights" will not fix your issues but is another tool in your armoury to help avoid infection in the future. It uses no resources and you don't even notice it is there. Can say more later if you go that way.

This is the proper link to YouTube Downloader (now called YTD):
http://youtubedownload.altervista.org/
The free version is fine.

EDIT:
One word of caution. Watch each screen carefully when installing free software. Very often they try to foist unwanted goodies on you, such as toolbars or virus checkers.
It's just a matter of unticking the appropriate boxes to avoid getting these. You probably already know this but I thought I'd mention it just in case. [DMR is from Microsoft and doesn't try to lumber you with anything else].
