I wrote about the GOLD Digger scam a few days ago HERE and this is an update!!
I want to alert you to something more devious that GOLD Digger has done! Beware of this disgusting company and their software! I installed the GOLD Digger software on my computer. When I attempted to remove the software I was given a nice little parting gift. Malware!
GOLD Digger software installed malicious files onto my computer when I removed the software. This is what they do to you when you decide you don’t want to continue with their trading! It left several malware files behind! This was a huge headache to remove and I’m more than a little angry over it.
The files will leave pop up ads in your browser for other scams they want you to try and dangerous websites as well. Even worse, the malware creates a connection bridge between your computer and their server! This bridge steals your stored information! Passwords and emails! Anything that you have saved in your browser is theirs. Your email will turn into their own personal spam inbox.
1- Install perfectuninstaller
2- Open the software and select processes tab.
3- Uninstall any process related to [Network Virtual Bridge] 4- Go to C:\Program Files you will find two folders [Network Virtual Bridge] and [Network Virtual Bridge Update Protocol] delete both folders!
**Note: After following these steps your internet connection will not work.
This is because of the bridge proxy that you just have disabled and deleted. You will need reset the TCP from the computer.
To do so please click Start > All Programs > Accessories, right-click on Command Prompt and choose “Run as administrator”.
OR you can: Type in the search bar “Command Prompt”. Run this as an administrator.
When you open the Command Prompt Box type this command in it:
netsh winsock reset catalog Press [Enter] on your keyboard.
Then Type this too:
netsh int ip reset reset.log Press[Enter] on your keyboard.
That should take care of the problem! Restart your computer and now your pc will be safe and clear.
