Probable infection not being found with scan

Recommended Posts

I am having an issue that I believe is similar if not identical to one that others on this site are posting about.

Recently my computer started playing ads in the background as soon as it boots up and continues playing them while the computer is online. There are no applications or services that I have found that correspond to these ads.

I installed malwarebytes and ran the quick scan to see if it could find the infection. Nothing was found in that scan but since installing Malwarebytes I am receiving popup messages stating that Malwarebytes Anit-Malware Successfully blocked access to a potentially malicious website. The popups are every few seconds. The IP addresses to the blocked websites range from to and the process is always svchost.exe. The ads are no longer audible on my computer so it seems that Malwarebytes is blocking this issue but it is still installed on my computer. I am also experiencing frequent crashes where my machine shuts down unexpectedly (blue screen). Any help in getting this malware/virus off of my computer would be greatly appreciated.
