Every time I open my Internet Explorer or Firefox, I get the site public-box.ru, which within a fraction of a second redirects to the site onclickads.net, which in turn redirects to some other adware site, like offer.alibaba.com,  financialsecrets.com,  aussiemethod.com. All the names, except the first, are known as malware sites. I have searched a reference to public-box.ru on the web, but haven't found anything, so I don't know how to get rid of it. My OS is windows 8.1

Hi & :welcome:

My name is Jürgen and I will be assisting you with your Malware related problems. medieval.gif

Before we move on, please read the following points carefully. :excl:

  • My native language isn't English. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.
  • Please read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding.
  • Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one.
  • If you have any problems while you are follow my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem.
  • Do not run any other scans without instruction or Add/ Remove Software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me.
  • Post all Logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts.
  • If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.
  • Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean.
P2P/Piracy Warning:
  • If you're using Peer 2 Peer software such as uTorrent, BitTorrent or similar you must either fully uninstall them or completely disable them from running while being assisted here.
  • Failure to remove or disable such software will result in your topic being closed and no further assistance being provided.
  • If you have illegal/cracked software, cracks, keygens, etc. on the system, please remove or uninstall them now and read the policy on Piracy.
Step 1

Please run a FRST scan. This will help us diagnose your problem.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.

(If you are not sure which version (32-/64-bit) applies to your system, download and try to start both of them as just the right one will run.)

  • Start FRST with administator privileges.
  • Make sure the option Addition.txt is checked and press the Scan button.
  • When finished, FRST will produce two logs (FRST.txt and Addition.txt) in the same directory the tool was run from.
  • Please copy and paste these logs in your next reply.
