On Friday the 27th, I obtained a NetGear router that would allow me regular use of the internet which I had not had access to for a year or so (For the past half year I'd had times where I could borrow use of the internet by switching the ethernet cable connected to the basic hub for a few hours on some weekdays). Yay! Except after set up was complete, Internet explorer started opening unbidden (I use chrome); The sounds of adverts began playing from no discernible source, even when all browsers were closed; When I tried searching on my browser of choice, I got strange redirects, including to a site called happili. I ran a full scan of MWB, and found a huge mess of malware. Since the initial removal and restart, the redirects and phantom ads continue, along with infrequent pop-up tabs. It seems that there are three files of malware that the removal software detects but consistently fails to remove, including certstore.dat, after 8 failed attempts. I even temporarily deactivated system restore, to see if that could fix the problem. I also tried to delete the detected files manually from my System32 folder. No such luck though, as I couldn't find them. I run Windows 7 (x32) I am currently running another full scan of which I will soon furnish this topic of the log so that I may get better assistance,
