Topictorch.netseer malware distributor and Yontoo

Recently we met a strange problem: when we tied to open a new webpage using Chrome browser, it always popup a strange advertise page first, no matter what the new web page which we opened is. for example, even we just tried to open a Google news page, the same adv page still came.

And, today, when we tried to open a webpage which we are using daily, it is a stable page without any adv popped up before. but we saw the following error message:

Danger: Malware Ahead!

Google Chrome has blocked access to this page on botcrawl.com.

So we know now there must be a malware in our PC system now. then we searched on Google, found the main topic were about a software Yontoo which was from Yontoo LLC company.

See here, Yahoo answer, a friend named Brandon:

I just fixed this. You must have installed something. Maybe a toolbar, or downloaded something. I uninstalled Yontoo and it fixed it no problem
Check your installed programs.
Start Button>Control Panel>Uninstall Programs (For Win7)
Once you uninstall whatever it is it should fix this.

So we went to Control Panel and saw we really have a Yontoo software installed:

Then we uninstalled it right away, but when you uninstall it, please know you have to check on the right option to remove this not nice software, see below: you have to choose the bottom option, otherwise you will find the Yontoo still there. Also, you have to close your web browser also !

Again, please close your web browser when you uninstall Yontoo.

After you uninstall Yontoo, you will see your problem gone.
