  1. Howdy. I joined this forum so that I could find help with this annoying virus. The culprit is this thing called "Search Assist" that seems to have gotten into all of my browsers. What happens is that it finds keywords on any website I visit, highlights them in an orange color, and displays an ad when I hover over them. It even happens on this site. Here are some screens of the problem: I have done numerous scans with Malwarebytes, including ones with my computer in safe mode, and it tells me my pc is clean. There are no new toolbars or extensions in the browsers that could've been instal
  2. A couple weeks ago I started getting these ads that appear whenever I open Internet explorer or Firefox. It is always in the bottom left of the screen and they cannot be closed out of. The most I can do is click "hide ad" and then you can only see a small amount of it, after a few mins though it will becomes full size again. I have tried malwarebytes to try and get rid of it but that did not work. It doesn't matter what webpages I'm on, the ad is always there and it is significantly slowing down my computer. How do I get rid of this? Please help!
  3. Hello, I just joined this forum and I hope I am posting this in the right forum, please forgive me if it's not. For a while now I've been hearing random ads play in the background especially when youtube is open and whenever I click on a site it keeps popping up random links. It's really annoying. I don't know if I have a malware or spyware or adware e.t.c but here is my log. Please help me from this nightmare, thank you. dds.txt
  4. Hi, I recently experienced ads by this coupondropdown. Ads persists after removing using malwarebytes,though a second scan shows that the coupondropdown does not exist anymore. Also discovered this PUP.installbrain. Appreciate your help. Below the DDS.txt, Attach.txt and RougeKiller 64-bit log.

  5. For a long time, my laptop has been showing ads on every website I visit, and they all look the same. They are either a white box with random words from the website I am at,, a video in a box playing at the bottom left, a facebook chat lookalike, or even inappropriate pictures. What should I do?
  6. HI I am having the same problem below during the last month these annoying square-ads keep popping up in the bottom left or right corner of my browser (doesn't matter if I use Chrome or Firefox, it's basicaly the same). I did full scans with my anti-virus program as well as yours but still no luck thanks bob
  7. Hi! I've had several of my friends try to help me fix my little problem. I was on Deviantart when a (I'm guessing) fake java update popped up. On the phone and only half paying attention, I clicked something like "remind me later" or whatever (I wasn't really paying attention), and about an hour later I start hearing these Ads, but there's nothing there for me to exit out of them. They do not redirect me to anything. It's been about two weeks, and I've literally tried everything I could! Please help, I can't play any computer games because it lags, or the Ads overpower the sound!
  8. Hello, I have an annoying issue, I recently got rid of an annoying re-direct virus around 1-2 weeks ago. A day or two later I started noticing Internet Explorer (IE) as an active process in Task Manager, even though I did not have it actively pulled up. The name of the website also changed, and sometimes there were 3 or 4 different IE processes pulled up. Occasionally I would encounter audio ads. I was unable to try and end the process like you would normally end any program that was not responding or was slow to exit normally. I had to go to processes in order to exit the ads out, however wit
  9. Alright, i am really new to all of this and have been searching for a solution to my problems for the past couple of days. After reading many forums and this one in specific i found that i should not copy anything that the "expert" had told another individual. I dont know if this is the right place to post this Topic but i am in desperate need of help, i have downloaded a program called "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware" and every problem that it is blocking has a provess "svchost.exe" i have tried to end this process but it keeps starting itself up again. What do i do?
  10. I cleaned up my computer today because it kept jumping to other web sites. I used rkill, Mlwaerbytes and AVG Internet Security 2012.They cleaned up several viruses.
