All of a sudden I'm suffering from a mass of unwanted adverts while online, everything from pop ups to whole pages, even e-bay seems to have twice as many as usual. A lot of them are trying to get me to buy anti virus stuff, e-fix and the like. I don't know how I let them in but I really want them gone. Tried malewarebytes and spybot and things like adfender but nothing seems to work. Help please before I chuck the hard drive in the river.
Didn't work, first run with ADW cleaner found loads of stuff but didn't make any difference, second run found nothing. I was in safe mode. Still suffering, had seven ads on one page just now and got diverted while trying to get here. Seems to be something called Powered by name, Ads everywhere and constantly being diverted to new pages advertising e-fix or similar. Driving me nuts.
You need to follow all the steps on ClickHere to get rid of all the Redirect Virus's, don't miss out any steps. Read the full page before you do anything. All the tools used are free programs, no cost involved.
However, first you could try a system restore back to before you had the problem, it might just work to fix it.
Once you have 'got clean' you should install things like: Adblock+, SpywareBlaster, Unchecky (all free programs and will not clash with AVG or other 'Anti' programs)
Check programs and features for any strange software that is installed. Might be called ShopperPro, Obrona or Coupons. Power coupons, Free Shop or similar. Uninstall the latest and strangest you find. Restore all of your browsers to default. Run Ccleaner and its registry cleaner. If you haven't got it download Malwareytes antimalware, update it.
Download Rkill and run it. Do not reboot or log off. Once Rkill has run then run Malwarebytes and then run ADWCleaner again. Reboot as ADW will suggest.
