Unwanted ads not removed by Malware fighter


Recommended Posts

This PC is being attacked by unwanted ads that underline certain words in blue type on any web page that I am looking at. If I click on the underlined word, up pops an ad. Also if I have not clicked on any of these underlined words, after a time up pops an ad with sound, which is very disturbing, especially as you have to wait 10 seconds before you can close it.

 

I have run Malware fighter Pro 3.2 for a deep clean and rebooted the PC. I have AVG antivirus running and have deleated the cookies on the system, but these ads still keep coming.

 

Does anyone have any idea how to clean them out?

Hello and welcome to IOBit Forums. My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer.

 

1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.

2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.

3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.

4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.

5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.

6. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.

7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

 

If you can't access the internet with your infected computer you will have to download and transfer any programs to the computer you're using now and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD-RW or a USB storage device. I prefer a CD because a storage device can get infected. If you use a storage device hold the shift key down while inserting the USB storage device for about 10 secs. You will also have to transfer the logs you receive back to the good computer using the same method until we can get the computer back on-line.

Please note. This site will only notify you of my reply about one month after I have posted. You should check in every day.
