I got infected with a fake alert virus (from a knitting pattern site of all things) and also a Google redirect virus.
The virus prevented me from using Malwarebytes until I figured out a workaround. I ran Rkill and Malwarebytes as well as my usual firewall stuff. Now things seem normal but I'm hesitant to reboot since when I did before (midway through the scouring process), the fake alert returned.
Is there anything else I should run before rebooting? I use this notebook every day so theoretically, I could just let it sleep and never reboot until replacing the battery. ;)
