PUP.Bitminer infection

Recommended Posts

I'm very new at trying to resolve my computer problems. Most the time I can fix them with a combo of Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware. I currently have those two, plus TDSSKiller.

With SUPERAntiSpyware it only picks up on about 100 or so Adware Tracking Cookies and the Malwarebytes finds something called PUP.Bitminer. It removes it but it somehow reappears later. I've used HiJackThis and when I posted a log onto another forum the people there said I had nothing wrong with my computer. I'm worried and now I keep getting some fake news site pop up randomly when I use Firefox. When I use Google or any other search engine, I'll see the link I need to click, click it, and it tries to go to that site but then redirects. It's very strange. I'm at wits end and I just want my laptop to go back to normal. Any help would be appreciated!

EDIT: I found something with TDSSKiller and it told me to Skip it so I did, but it's still there. I don't see how to neutralize what it finds.

I hope this is the right place to post this.

Also I'd like to keep from uninstalling windows if I can and getting a whole new hard drive seeing as how the laptop I own the cheapest internal for my laptop is 139 dollars.
