Yandex says that "the queries seem automatic."

Yandex says that "the queries seem automatic."

If you find that Yandex does not work and instead of displaying the standard page type "Oops ... Inquiries received from your address seem automatic" and ask you to enter your phone number to continue with the search - first, no Believe it or not: this is just another way for scammers to get your money using malicious software.

In this article, we are going to see how to get rid of this message and get back your normal Yandex page.

What is this and why does Yandex say it?

First of all, the page you see is not a Yandex site at all, it just uses the same layout to fool you. That is, the essence of the work of the virus is that when you request popular sites (in our case, Yandex), it does not show you this page, but redirects you to a fake phishing site. Something similar happens when colleagues and other social networks do not open and they also ask you to send an SMS or enter your phone number.

How to fix an Oy page in Yandex

Now we are going to see how to solve this situation and eliminate the virus. The method is very similar to what I already described in the article Websites and pages won't open, but Skype works.

Therefore, if Yandex says Oops, then do the following steps:

  1. Run the registry editor by pressing Win + R and enter the command regedit.
  2. Open the registry branch HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SOFTWARENMicrosoftNWindows NTNCurrentVersionNWindows
  3. Pay attention to the AppInit_DLLs parameter and its value - right-click on it, select "Change", remove the path to the DLL specified there. Remember the location of the file for future deletion.
  4. Open Windows Task Scheduler and look through the active tasks in the scheduler library - among others, you should see an item there that launches some exe file with the same location as the library in AppInit_DLLs. Delete that task.
  5. Restart your computer, preferably in safe mode.
  6. Delete two files at the location of the virus: the DLL library and the job's Exe file.

After that, you can restart your computer already in normal mode and most likely if you try to open Yandex in your browser, it will open successfully.

Another way is by using the AVZ antivirus utility

This option, in general, repeats the previous one, but, perhaps, someone is more convenient and understandable. For this we need a free AVZ antivirus utility, which can be downloaded for free from here:

Once downloaded, unzip it from the archive, run it and click "File" - "System Research" in the main menu. After that, click the "Start" button, you don't need to change any settings (you just need to specify where to save the report).

In the final report, after doing your research, look for the "Autorun" section and find the DLL whose description says HKEY_.LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTN-DO NOT FORGET THAT MOST PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO INFORMATION.Current versionWindows, AppInit_DLLs. From this element you must remember (copy) the name of the file.

Then find "Scheduler Tasks" in the report and find the exe file, which is in the same folder as the DLL in the previous paragraph.

Then, in the AVZ, select "File" - "Run Script" and run the following script:

begin DeleteFile ('путь к библиотеке DLL из первого пункта'); DeleteFile ('путь к EXE из второго пункта'); ExecuteSysClean; RebootWindows (true); end.

After running this script, the computer will restart automatically and the "Oops" message will no longer appear when starting Yandex.
