  1. I have been "infected" by taboola which opens a blank tab in my edge browser. I have norton secutiry and premium malwarebytes and neither can find the infection. Please help me to remove it Addition.txt FRST.txt
  2. Hi there, I am not really sure how to explain what exactly is infecting my computer but I think at some point, as many others here report, I accidentally clicked on an ad a couple months ago. trc.taboola.com sites that I never visited started showing up in my frequent tabs. An example of one of the taboola tabs: "trc.taboola.com/ziffdavis-network15-pcmag/log13/available". This tab appeared the next time I started my computer after I had visited a pcmag website. And there were other page names that would appear in the taboola addresses, like PCMag, that I had visited on later occasions. I also started getting mpstat.us tabs as well, for example, 36f142cc.mpstat.us & another, 36f1f08e.mpstat.us. I have had many of these over the last several weeks, sometimes two at a time, but usually just one, when I view the frequent sites on a new tab. Always with a 36 at the start and then other letters & numbers. I did several scans with AVG and Malwarebytes & found nothing. I ran scans with Adwcleaner, that found several things, which I deleted. I also ran a junkware JRT scan. I would be happy to post all the logs of scans I have run if you think that would help to troubleshoot. Conhost.exe is a process that also seems to be causing my computer to slow down. I now end the process when I start my computer, but every time I restart, there it is running again & seems to really slow things down. And when the process is running, my computer makes weird intermittent beeps. I have read this conhost might be a bitcoin miner. Currently the taboola addresses no longer appear on my frequent tabs, but the mpstat addresses do. Please help. I have no idea how to rid my machine of this taboola, mpstat & conhost menace. Thank you in advance for any help or guidance you can provide. I am including the FRST & addition logfiles from a scan I did last night.
