Hey Kevin, thank you for the swift reply!

i followed your instructions to the letter, it seems that the problem has been solved, i haven't got any more pop-ups from that page and all the scans have come out clean. i am attaching all the log files you requested and below is the export from malwarebytes and below that, the log from adw, even though it came with 0 as well.

Sophos is taking its sweet time with it, but so far 0 threats detected. I will post a reply if anything comes up!

Hello angelkr,

If you have no remaining issues or concerns run the following to clean up:

Download "Delfix by Xplode" and save it to your desktop.

Or use the following if first link is down:

"Delfix link mirror"

If your security program alerts to Delfix either, accept the alert or turn your security off.

Double Click to start the program. If you are using Vista or higher, please right-click and choose run as administrator

Make Sure the following items are checked:

 
  • Remove disinfection tools <----- this will remove tools we have used.
  • Purge System Restore <--- this will remove all previous and possibly exploited restore points, a new point relative to system status at present will be created.
  • Reset system settings <--- this will reset any system settings back to default that were changed either by us during cleansing or malware/infection


Now click on "Run" and wait patiently until the tool has completed.

The tool will create a log when it has completed. We don't need you to post this.

Any remnant files/logs from tools we have used can be deleted…

Next,

Read the following links to fully understand PC Security and Best Practices, you may find them useful....

Take care and surf safe
