What Are The Dangers Behind Trojan:DOS/Rovnix.D Reappearance?

For the past couple of weeks my computer has been completely crashing randomly, showing a blue screen. Not only does my computer crash, but my google chrome crashes constantly. Some times its so bad i can't even get on because it'll crash three seconds after opening a tab. I have microsoft security essentials on my computer. After running a quick scan (I'm unable to run a full scan because the computer always crashes before it has time to be completed), it told me that it detected " Trojan:DOS/Rovnix.D and that the alert level is severe. I don't know how to get rid of this virus, and though it says I should "quarantine" it, I don’t know what that means, and the option is unavailable. “ - Quote


Attacked by Browser Hijacker! How to Remove? Problems

I've read something about being a result of having some sort of spyware in my PC.
Besides the fact that is my homepage now, and I can't rid of it, some words in texts turn into popups with ads, and my chrome extension list features stuff named "IcoValiad 5.3", "ssavvianigitoyou 2.1", "RightSurf 1.0.0" and "New Tab Search 0.5" (at least those are the ones I'm suspicious about)

Microsoft Security Essentials found nothing with Fast Scan, and Complete Scan is running right now.”

I somehow acquired the "Sweetpacks" toolbar/bundle mess today and spent 3 hours trying to remove it - no luck. It takes over your Toolbar, and even blocks legitimate search answers for serious attempts to remove it. Went into "Add/Remove Programs", I can see the various things added today – DomaIQ, IE Toolbar 4.7, VAF Player, etc. Tried to "uninstall" but either they won't OR I get the ‘An unidentified program wants access to your computer Allow or Cancel’.”

All in all, manages to do the following things to plague victims:

Remove PUP.Optional.FreeCause that Trigger Freecause Toolbar and Ads

PUP.Optional.FreeCause Issues

Most of the scans come out clean but few flag PUP.Optional.FreeCause. Attempts to disable Chrome plug-ins will not stop the ads (including Multiple pop up ads advertising products to buy and pop up video commercials) that come into the computer along with PUP.Optional.FreeCause. Attempts to exit out of them would sometimes open up a new window directing to a website to buy anti virus software (as a matter of fact some of the program could be rogueware). Besides, additional applications are caught in sight to occupy internal resource without authorization, freecause toolbar and srp.freecause.comfor example.

What Is PUP.Optional.FreeCause

Some consider PUP.Optional.FreeCause mistakenly as Trojan, instead, it is PUP and categorized as adware. It works just like PUP.Optional.Iminent, PUP.Optional.bProtector and PUP.Optional.Conduit that support web applications accordingly. Such PUP is created to help preload corresponding applications into the system configuration and assist in manipulating settings without being flagged by installed security utilities.

Remove YoutubeAdblocker Adware and Extension – Is It Non-Removable and Based on PUP.YoutubeAdBlocker?

Do I Have YoutubeAdblocker Virus?

YoutubeAdblocker adware/extension plays dodgy and makes victims experience some new stuff:

  1. Advertisements fly all over the place where it previously wasn't - mainly payday loan, gambling and mail order bride sites. 
  2. Clicking on a link, another page with ads opens up in front of the intended page.
  3. On some sites, some words are suddenly green in colour, underlined a couple of times and clickable to take to advertising sites.
As what YoutubeAdblocker states, it helps block video ads, which it does, but that doesn’t indicate that it would not publish other kind of ads. But one thing can be confirmed is that YoutubeAdblocker is not a virus, it is a PUP geared by PUP.YoutubeAdBlocker.
