How to remove Halaboommall

  1. First, click the Start Menu on your Windows PC.
  2. Type Programs and Settings in the Start Menu, click the first item, and find Halaboommall in the programs list that would show up.
  3. Select Halaboommall from the list and click on Uninstall.
  4. Follow the steps in the removal wizard.

What we suggest you do first is, check the list of programs that are presently installed on the infected device and uninstall any rogue software that you find there:

  • From the Start Menu, navigate to Control Panel ->>> Programs and Features ->>> Uninstall a Program.
  • Next, carefully search for unfamiliar programs or programs that have been installed recently and could be related to Halaboommall.
  • If you find any of the programs suspicious then uninstall them if they turn out to be linked to Halaboommall.
  • If a notification appears on your screen when you try to uninstall a specific questionable program prompting you to just alter it or repair it, make sure you choose NO and complete the steps from the removal wizard.

Remove Halaboommall from Chrome

  1. Click on the three dots in the right upper corner
  2. Go to more tools
  3. Now select extensions
  4. Remove the Halaboommall extension
  • Once you open Chrome, click on the three-dots icon to open the browser’s menu, go to More Tools/ More Options, and then to Extensions.
  • Again, find the items on that page that could be linked to Halaboommall and/or that might be causing problems in the browser and delete them.
  • Afterwards, go to this folder: Computer > C: > Users > *Your User Account* > App Data > Local > Google > Chrome > User Data. In there, you will find a folder named Default – you should change its name to Backup Default and restart the PC.
  • Note that the App Data folder is normally hidden so you’d have to first make the hidden files and folders on your PC visible before you can access it.

How to get rid of Halaboommall on FF/Edge/etc.

  1. Open the browser and select the menu icon.
  2. From the menu, click on the Add-ons button.
  3. Look for the Halaboommall extension
  4. Get rid of Halaboommall by removing it from extensions

If using Firefox:

  • Open Firefox
  • Select the three parallel lines menu and go to Add-ons.
  • Find the unwanted add-on and delete it from the browser – if there is more than one unwanted extension, remove all of them.
  • Go to the browser menu again, select Options, and then click on Home from the sidebar to the left.
  • Check the current addresses for the browser’s homepage and new-tab page and change them if they are currently set to address(es) you don’t know or trust.

If using MS Edge/IE:

  • Start Edge
  • Select the browser menu and go to Extensions.
  • Find and uninstall any Edge extensions that look undesirable and unwanted.
  • Select Settings from the browser menu and click on Appearance.
  • Check the new-tab page address of the browser and if it has been modified by “Halaboommall” or another unwanted app, change it to an address that you’d want to be the browser’s new-tab page.

How to Delete Halaboommall

  1. Open task manager
  2. Look for the Halaboommall process
  3. Select it and click on End task
  4. Open the file location to delete Halaboommall
  • Access the Task Manager by pressing together the Ctrl + Alt + Del keys and then selecting Task Manager.
  • Open Processes and there try to find a process with the name of the unwanted software. If you find it, select it with the right button of the mouse and click on the Open File Location option.
  • If you don’t see a “Halaboommall” process in the Task Manager, look for another suspicious process with an unusual name. It is likely that the unwanted process would be using lots of RAM and CPU so pay attention to the number of resources each process is using.
  • Tip: If you think you have singled out the unwanted process but are not sure, it’s always a good idea to search for information about it on the Internet – this should give you a general idea if the process is a legitimate one from a regular program or from your OS or if it is indeed likely linked to the adware.
  • If you find another suspicious process, open its File Location too.
  • Once in the File Location folder for the suspicious process, start testing all of the files that are stored there by dragging them to our free online scanner available below.
  • Each file will be scanned with up to 64 antivirus programs to ensure maximum accuracy

If all files get deleted normally, exit the folder and delete that folder too. If one or more of the files showed an error message when you tried to delete them, leave them for now and return to try to delete them again once you’ve completed the rest of the guide.

    Is scam like Halaboommall dangerous?

    Speaking of potential consequences of a Trojan Horse attack, there could be quite a lot of them. The representatives of this malware category like Wup.exe, Multi Speed Up are infamous for how versatile they tend to be and how many different harmful actions they could perform inside the machines infected by them. To list a few of them, a Trojan Horse could be used as an espionage tool that collects sensitive data from your computer and/or directly spies on your online and offline activities, it can also be tasked with inserting additional threats inside the already infected system, including Rootkits, Ransomware, Phishing viruses and more. Another possible (and very common) use of a Trojan Horse virus is when the malware takes over important processes in the machine and causes the latter to carry out certain tasks without the permission of the user. In some cases, the infected machine would be forced to use up all of its system resources for cryptocurrency generation for the hackers’ profit. In other situations, the computer, alongside all other systems infected by the same Trojan, could be used as a tool for spreading spam or for carrying out DDoS attacks that can block popular sites by overwhelming their servers with artificial traffic. Depending on the way the Trojan is used, the damage to your system might be different but in almost all cases there would be some form of direct or indirect harm caused to the system or to your virtual privacy. We cannot say with certainty what the exact consequences of a potential attack from Halaboommall could be because this is a very new threat and there’s not enough research done on it at the moment but one thing is for certain and that is this virus must be removed as quickly as possible if it gets noticed on  a computer. Here is where we will once again draw your attention to our malware-removal guide that you can find down below and which we advise you to complete if you suspect that Halaboommall might have infected your computer.
