Welcome to the forum.

Are you on a Verizon/FIOS router???

Model number???

===================================================

Download the attached fixlist.txt to the same folder as FRST.exe/FRST64.exe.

Run FRST.exe/FRST64.exe and click Fix only once and wait

The tool will create a log (Fixlog.txt) in the folder, please post it to your reply.

OK...this is from Verizon and how to resolve the problem:

"This is expected bahavior. The Verizon Online DNS resolvers have NXDOMAIN redirection services that redirect any unknown host to a sponsored search page. You can opt out of this by changing your resolver from .12 to .14."

https://www.verizon.com/support/residential/internet/fiosinternet/troubleshooting/network/questionsone/99144.htm#<---opt out

===================================

Rather than change the current settings as they say to, we've been installing OpenDNS on the routers and it's been working fine.

So lets give that a try:

First..as in the image below, copy down the current DNS Server: settings (primary and secondary)

Example in image:

71.252.0.12

71.242.0.12

======================================

Now here's instructions on how to install OpenDNS on your router:

These instructions have better images:

You're going to use these settings for OpenDNS:

208.67.222.222

208.67.220.220

To confirm it's installed correctly...visit the site below:

Good Luck.....Let me know, MrC

They're caused by the way Verizon deals with a hostname that does not resolve.
"The Verizon Online DNS resolvers have NXDOMAIN redirection services that redirect any unknown host to a sponsored search page."

Many people are having the same problem.

If there's no other problems;

A little clean up to do....

Ahh I just read the link, never mind! Thank you so much! None of those popups corresponded with a virus right?

Yes that correct......your computer is clean.

The problem is due to the way Verizon deals with any unknown host:

"This is expected behavior. The Verizon Online DNS resolvers have NXDOMAIN redirection services that redirect any unknown host to a sponsored search page. You can opt out of this by changing your resolver from .12 to .14."
