Annoying adware and popups that won't go away. Please help


Recommended Posts

This problem started on the 15th of March. I didn't even download anything. It just popped up right out of nowhere.

Here's the problem. Whenever I go to a website such as Wikia, Gamefaqs and Nexus Mods (This problem hasn't happened with Reddit, Facebook, Tumblr and Youtube) A bunch of annoying ads appear and clog up the screen, preventing me from using anything.

Details:

An Around the web page appears on the right, blocking the scrolling bar.

A video  that appears in the middle of the screen, except because of Adblock Plus, it just stays gray.

Any links that I click on, or rather anything at all that I click, it leads to some stupid advertisement in a new tab. And sometimes, the website it self cuts to an ad. These advertisements include: Reimage repair,PCkeeper, Dallas homes,Animal Jam, Bleach Online,Flash player updates, Spin the lucky wheel and others.

And the worst part? No anti virus/malware/adware software that I use can get rid of it.

Tried deleting programs from Windows 10 on the control panel. Nothing changed.

Tried using Chrome cleanup tool. Nothing changed.

Tried using Spybot-Search and Destroy. Nothing changed.

Tried using Malwarebytes - Anti Malware. It did help, but only for one day. The annoying ads just reappeared last night. I rescanned it again using anti-malware but it didn't find any threats.

Tried using adwCleaner. Nothing changed.

Tried using Junkware Removal tool. Nothing changed.

Tried using HitmanPro. Still nothing.

All of these softwares that I used were suggested by Malwaretips.com. It did suggest one other as well as some softwares suggested by Youtubers, but due to the malware virus (Don't even know what to call it) I can't download them from their personal websites.

My last resort are these forums. So please, if you know what kind of problem that I have, tell me how to fix it.

I would like to know the answer as soon as possible for future work. Please and thank you.

Hello and welcome to Malwarebytes,

Please be aware the following P2P/Piracy Warning is a standard opening reply made here at Malwarebytes, we make no accusations but do make you aware of Forum Protocol....

Anyone other than the original starter of this thread please DO NOT follow the instructions and advice posted as replies here, my help and advice is NOT related to your system and will probably cause more harm than good...


Next,

 

Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system (32 bit or 64 bit). 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.

If your security alerts to FRST either, accept the alert or turn your security off to allow FRST to run. It is not malicious or infected in any way...


  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
    (Windows 8/10 users will be prompted about Windows SmartScreen protection - click More information and Run.)
  • Make sure Addition.txt is checkmarked under "Optional scans"
  • Press Scan button to run the tool....
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
  • The tool will also make a log named (Addition.txt)  Please attach those logs to your reply.


Let me see those two logs...

I tried the tool and scanned, but the problem still persists. Is there something that I'm missing?

Your links aren't really working because:

The ZOEK link just tabs into this same discussion instead of to the website, or wherever you download Zoek.

And the link to disable anti virus security is overrun by the annoying pop ads that I'm having.
