  3. Hello Aubiter, The block scan did show Firefox to be at fault for the redirects, the clean install of Firefox should really have cured that issue. If they do return later that would seem to indicate a re-infection, for now we can safely close your thread.. If you have similar issues again in the future it would be more appropriate to open a new thread... Regards, Kevin...

  12. Thanks for the update Aubiter, Please post back what happens either way within 5 days, I usually close inactive threads after that time... Thank you, Kevin..
  13. Hiya Aubiter, Is this redirect problem only affecting FIreFox, if so try a fresh install see if that helps.. Make a "Clean" install Firefox: Use the following link for instructions how to back up your bookmarks, same link can be used to import saved Bookmarks: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/export-firefox-bookmarks-to-backup-or-transfer Next, Remove all synced data from Firefox to stop possible re-infection or exploitation. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1037353 Next, Go here: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/ download save the latest version of Firefox.. We will install this later... Next, Lets totally remove Firefox and start over. Go here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/uninstall-firefox-from-your-computer and follow those instructions... Ensure when the uninstall completes to navigate to and delete the firefox installation folder (if present): (32-bit Windows) C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox (64-bit Windows) C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox It is essential the installation folder is removed. Re-boot your system when that is completed.... Next, To remove all remaining data and profile information... Press "Windows key + R" to open the Run box In the Run box, type in or copy and paste %APPDATA% Click OK. A Windows Explorer window will appear. In this window, choose/open in succession Mozilla > Firefox > Profiles. Select Delete on each entry in reverse, eg Profiles > Delete. Firefox > Delete. Mozilla > Delete. Re-boot your system when complete! Next, Use the Mozilla Firefox installer to reinstall your Browser.... When Firefox is installed and open select these keys together :- Ctrl - Shift - A that will access Addons manger, this gives access to find addons/extensions, use, start, stop or disable those features etc.... uBlock-Origin can be installed from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/ <<--- Recommended. Thanks, Kevin
  14. Hello again guy12, Try this first..... Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop. Alternative download option: http://www.techspot.com/downloads/6731-farbar-recovery-scan-tool.html Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system (32 bit or 64 bit). If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version. If your security alerts to FRST either, accept the alert or turn your security off to allow FRST to run. It is not malicious or infected in any way... Be aware FRST must be run from an account with Administrator status... Run FRST then continue with the following: Type the following in the edit box after "Search:". IAStorIconLaunch.exe Click Search Files button and post the log (Search.txt) it makes to your reply. Thanks, Kevin...
  15. Hello again guy12, Is worthwhile following @David H. Lipman advice and upload the file in question for analysis, I do not have that file on my system for comparison.. Thank you, Kevin..
