Re: Criteo malware

Hello Derek123

Please pay a visit to one of the free malware removal sites which we recommend. Please do not try any self fixes as they could make things worse. Please stick with the site until they tell you your computer is clean.

Please see this link for an up to date description of these sites plus the addition of a newly listed site formed by one of our successful malware remover users who unfortunately has passed away. That site is still being run by a good expert who happens to be one of the other Gurus.  The new site is listed first in this link.


Please come back and let us know how you made out.



Success always occurs in private and failure in full view. Windows 10 Pro 64 bit Norton Core Security Plus Core Firmware 282 I E 11 Chrome latest version.

Re: Criteo malware

Thanks for all your help, I have taken onboard all the advice, I have run so many adware removal sites, still from time to time. I thought I would share with you this little snipped (cut and paste) from the offending site; they seem to be very proud of the fact that people cannot free themselves of the irritation. Opting out from the site does not work i.e. I am opted out. Derek123

Gemini mail 

Marketers strive to deliver relevant messages, to a large audience, while keeping costs in check. Today, advertisers can reach these audiences with a new native ad experience on Yahoo Mail.

Now, the ad at the top of each user's inbox can open like an email, and be read, saved, clicked or forwarded, with reporting available on each type of interaction.

Thanks to valuable top placement in each user’s message list, mail ads are highly visible and drive action. Because all Yahoo Mail users are logged-in, advertisers can deliver their message to the audience that matters most—with targeting based on age, gender and interest, or custom audiences, such as the advertiser’s own list of email addresses.

Mail ads are served through Yahoo Gemini and have the same set of targeting options.


Re: Criteo malware

If I understand you correctly, you still have the issue. 

Your best suggestion is to go to one of the sites listed in floplot's post above.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Re: Criteo malware

Many thanks for your interest, yes I still have the problem, I try my best to ignore it. Just sitting there in my inbox, I believe I have fallen into the trap that Floplop warn off. I did try myself to remove it, before seeing that advice, not to try myself. I have thought about changing my email address as I believe it’s tied to that address. I have been to www . criteo . com/privacy and Opt-out but it’s still coming.

I will try all your advice yet again but not today Derek123
