This post is targeted at computer users with idp.alexa.51 virus on their PC.
So if you one of the users carrying idp.alexa.51 around, get in here to have this complete removal guide.
I’m going to be a bit brief and precise in this post.
So pay close attention to every line in this post so you don’t miss a thing.
So quickly, open the control panel on your PC and click uninstall or change program.
If you don’t know how to locate the control panel, simply hold down your Windows key and then press X then select control panel from the list of options displayed.
Once you locate your control panel, click on “Installed On” on the third row to sort the programs from the most recent ones since the virus will be in the list of the most recent installed programs.
Before you proceed,
Here is a piece of warning for you.
Just so you get things right.
Viruses have gotten smarter with time to make sure they stay with you so now you may even encounter some that provide a backdate or are installed under different names.
In this case, you will have to look around and uninstall any suspicious thing you don’t remember adding.
The next step to help tackle this idp.alexa.51 is to go into safe mode.
Depending on the version of Windows that you are using, how you into the Safe mode may vary so if you don’t know how to do it or you’re not feeling comfortable doing it on your own then you might want to learn how to do that first.
You will also need to clear some data from your browsers to be sure you get rid of links that may likely bring back the virus into your PC.
For Firefox users, open the browser make sure you’ve selected the menu bar by right-clicking on the very top on the
history drop-down and click on clear recent history.
Choose everything and make sure you’ve checked all the boxes available.
Now we’ll reset the browser!
Choose troubleshooting information and refresh the browser.
That’s it for Firefox users.
For Chrome users, open the browser under the menu button click on settings then history and clear browser data.
If you don’t want to delete all your history and you know approximately when you caught the virus, feel free to delete to a specific period of time.
Simply check all the boxes except passwords and then clear browser data.
Now we can go ahead and reset the browser back to settings and all the way down to the bottom, click on “reset settings”.
You might also want to be sure that there aren’t any leftovers of this virus in your browser extensions/add-ons.
So we’ll start off with Firefox.
Head over to the menu icon and down to add-ons.
Now, we will be scanning for any suspicious extension.
Take your your time to check through the list of installed extensions and be sure you have the suspicious one completely removed.
Once Firefox is restarted and we’ve made sure there are no miscellaneous extensions, we can move on to Chrome.
Open your Chrome browser, from the menu button into settings click on extensions.
Here, we’ll also be looking for anything suspicious that we need to delete.
Quick remove, and we’re done.
All we have to do now is restart the computer and make sure that we got rid of the adware.
Should in case you tried all of these steps and then idp.alexa.51 didn’t still want to get out of your computer, feel free to let us know, we’ll be glad to assist you further.
