Pop ups on all browsers


Recommended Posts

Hi

When I first started up my computer this eveningen,  I experienced load of pop ups ads and ads on the site, on all the browsers! Even on steam and inside Counter-Strike Global Offensive. I first turned off  the internet to then start up the computer in safe mode to see if this could help, but it did not.

I then ended up buying this malware-remover app as a last resource, and after a thorough scan it said my computer was clean. Before I tried my browsers again I rebooted the computer, but none of this didn't seem to have any effective on the malware.

I would be happy for a quick response to ensure I didn't wasteland my money completely.

Hello and :welcome:

 

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

Note: You need to run the version compatible 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. button.

FRST.gif Fix with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

icon_exclaim.gif This fix was created for this user for use on that particular machine. icon_exclaim.gif


icon_exclaim.gif Running it on another one may cause damage and render the system unstable. icon_exclaim.gif

Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop:

Both files, FRST and fixlist.txt have to be in the same location or the fix will not work!

  • Right-click on FRST.gif icon and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
    (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
  • Press the Fix button just once and wait.
  • If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
  • When finished FRST will generate a log on the Desktop, called Fixlog.txt.

Please upload it to your reply.
