All web browsers try to redirect to many ad sites and then start playing random music

Recommended Posts

Hi all


Over the past week i have been experiencing some annoying AdWare in all of my internet browsers


What happens is


  1. When i go on any web site except Google within 15 seconds of the page loading the browser enters a redirect loop
  2. After about another 30 seconds the redirect loop stops and random music starts playing, and a new tab opens with an ad in it


Because of this it is very difficult to do any work online, and as i am a Computer Science student whose work is mostly online and has deadlines to adhere to i can not do my work properly because of this and need to fix it as fast as possible.


Things I have Tried

  • scanning with MalwareBytes premium, which did not find anything
  • running ADWCleaner, which detected and removed some items but did not fix the problem
  • scanning AVG Free 2015, which did not find anything
  • Resetting all of my browsers to the default settings
  • Ran ComboFix which did not do anything
  • Ran Hijack This (Log is attached to this post)hijackthis.log
  • Ran RKill (Log is attached to this post)Rkill.txt
  • Browsing in incognito mode 

I have Also uploaded  a video demonstrating what happens here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p42yRNLfA9w&feature=youtu.be

But now i am fresh out of ideas I am hoping someone here will be able to help me


Thanks In Advance

They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll be working with you.
Before we start please read and note the following:

  • Limit your internet access to posting here, some infections just wait to steal typed-in passwords.
  • Please be patient. I know it is frustrating when your PC isn't working properly, but malware removal takes time.
  • Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.
  • Do not paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work easier. There is a More reply options button, that gives you Upload Files option below which you can use to attach your reports. Always attach reports from all tools.
  • Always execute my instructions in given order. If for some reason you cannot completely follow one instruction, inform me about that.
  • Stay with me to the end, the absence of symptoms doesn't mean that your machine is fully operational.
  • Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.
  • Do not ask for help for your business PC. Companies are making revenue via computers, so it is good thing to pay someone to repair it.
  • If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.

:excl: I can't foresee everything, so if anything unexpected happens, please stop and inform me!
:excl: There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.
Note: You need to run the version compatibale with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them.
Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.
