Potentially dangerous is not necessarily actually dangerous. I recommend it in the last link in my signature below under 3rd party tools so go ahead and try it.
I just tried the BleepingComputer download link and get no warning, but the one from the author's website does givve a warning.
I used AdwCleaner and first it looked like it worked, but then Whilokii was popping up again. I had not installed anything in the meantime.
There'a a great online uninstall guide here: http://malwaretips.com/blogs/adware-whilokii-removal/
As you'll see, it involves a few more tools in addition to that one.
I recommend most of those in my signature - last link.
I too am having this problem with whilokii, unfortunately, when ever I go to install adwcleaner.exe etc. I get an error message:
So, as you can see from the picture, doing a virus scan, will then do the classic IT techs advice of trying a PC restart. Once that is done I will do attempt to follow the instructions on malwaretips.com
I'll reply if I have any breakthroughs
I wouldn't try to run it when McAfee is busy scanning.
The scan failed first time round and a cold boot was required then a system clean up, once all that had happened and the PC settled down I ran AdwCleaner, which then removed 1 browser file, 19 registry files, 8 files/folders and 1 service file. My Intel Haswell CPU has gone down from 100% usage to little over 4% usage when idle. Another scan is in order
--Just a quick question regarding the quarantine, can the files in that folder be deleted or is it best to leave be, I've become a bit obsessed with keeping this computer as free as possible.
I ran all those cleaners, and I still got those Whilokii pop ups. Almost by accident I ran into the Whilokii website and followed through on their suggestion that it might be in my browser.
Sure enough, it had installed itself as an add-on in Firefox. Now I got rid of it. Finally.
Glad you are OK now.
