Hi Guys Thanks in advance if any1 can help here.cheers. Windows 7 home premium)

I ubibstalled my flash player forget why now some probs on a site i was on i think. anyway i went too install it again,and what thinking was a legit site for the flash player ive had nothing but problems. Advert pop ups,threat of my Avast antivirus on some sites that come on for nothing as i didnt open a window just appeared. i go too click on say like i did here too sign into pc advisor a page opened in background .happens a lot. I did a scan with one of them spy hunter things where you have pay too get them fixed,it found loads of infections .that ive seen my antivirus picked up on too,like Adware,zombie,Blinkiland,loads of toolbars,Tapinta, bubble dock etc etc. Ive tryed too go too a Free Malware site too run n remove a few but none will open for me or there is a problem it tells me .. Any suggestions please,and ive still not found a site for flash player yet that will open without these damn adverts etc or something stopping me from installing it. thanks

For a start download and run ADWCleaner see:


Let it scan and accept recommendations. Restart PC.

After that download and run Malawarebytes

Thanks i had delete Avast as AVG wouldnt continue until i did. Ive downloaded AVG and now doing a Full scan.
Before i did the scan a couple of threats popped up

  1. Malsign Firefox Browser 5C3
  2. "" "" 7D8

im now awaiting scan results on my 30 day trail of AVG. cheers.

After the Malaware Scan it found 1701 Non malaware problems and 1 malaware Threat they have been removed! i hope.:)

ive now made Avg my anti virus until the free trial runs out. then will see what i can do after that wether i can afford too buy it.

Have a look in "Programmes and features" in control panel and uninstall things you are sure are unwanted (maybe sort into latest installed). Do download and run ADWCleaner from my earlier link. I would, in due course, replace AVG with Avast, as I think Avast is quicker, but that could come later.

See below re Spyhunter

Remove Spyhunter
