Thanks for the replies.
I didn’t get a photo of what was going on, I ran out of things to try and asked my husband, who has more computer knowledge, to look at it. I honestly didn’t think of taking a screen capture before that.
There was a big green button installed on my Firefox browser, along with some that blended into the background color of the Firefox browser toolbar. On the drop down list of apps installed on the toolbar they had nonense names. I could hide them but it didn’t fix the problem: it was still messing up my toolbar.
For instance it changed my home page in Firefox from google to bing. And everything just looked wrong and different in the browser. So it took over my browser. That must be what it does if you have Mac, not a PC. This might be helpful info out there for someone.
Virus scans revealed nothing but I read that is the case with RegClean. It masquerades as a legit app. Also it may not have installed under its name. Computer search also revealed nothing by the name RegClean or Make Human or MakeHuman had installed.
So after the virus scans, he uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. I don’t feel secure that it’s completely gone…and I wish I knew how to check everything is functioning normally.
What RegClean apparently does is keep interrupting you on the computer until you give in and fork over $40 for their product. They claim their product stops malware but their product it seems, IS the malware. Some say it’s a virus, some say it’s spyware or malware. It’s all but impossible to get rid of if you do install it.
Nothing asked me if I wanted RegClean. I’d never install an app like that. I also unchecked permissions to install everything when a pop up appeared after I installed Make Human (I thought), and restarted Firefox. Nothing went wrong until I restarted Firefox, which is when it said it would have completed installation of Make Human.
I clicked the link someone posted for Make Human. When I typed it into the browser just now the site looked different. So I don’t know for sure what happened.
It is possible an ad covered the legit app and I installed that…I remember a big download button. I don’t see that on the real website. This is really weird.
Just please be wary of the site because this isn’t a good thing. Thanks.
