This has me foxed, as of about an hour ago I keep getting messages from my anti virus ie kaspersky allong the lines web page blocked google chrome etc but when I visit a page, even PC advisor and click on an item I get sent to a different page usually selling something. I have adblock plus installed etc.

NB Prior to this happening I got a warning message from kaspersky saying a malicious item was found close all pacakges, then click clean and pc will do an auto restart. I did this and bang all this stuff keeps popping up if I use google. I was on you tube last night looking at golf videos but not much else.

Its a right pain.

Try downloading the free version of SUPER ANTISPYWARE from their official website click here and I hope it would sort out the issues (install and complete scan one).

Kaspersky is the best ANTIVIRUS but sometimes ADWARES creates a bit of excessive mess.

Malwarebytes may do the trick

Download and run ADWCleaner. It usually sorts out hijacking of toolbars etc. Accept defaults. Takes a while to scan and requires a restart after.

ADW Bleeping computer.

thanks all, I used malaware bytes and it found a lot of PUP's so these have been quarantined. I then checked chrome again and went to update function, that failed so I then checked extensions and voila I had 3 rogue extensions. Deleted these and all back to normal for now. I have no idea how those extensions got added. I have downloaded the other packages as well.

and thanks for quick replies.
