Hi everyone, this is my first post and I'm desperate, here. I think I'm infected with Malware and I can't find it or get it out! I have screen shotes of the two "ads" that are showing up, if someone wants to see them. Clearly they are designed to get you to try and click on them. They are both showing up all across the web when I visit other pages, too.
Here is what I've done, scans I've run:
Advance System Care
Spybot Search and Destroy
AVG Virus Scan
And maybe one or two more (I can't remember)
None of these are picking up anything.
I've done a system restore to the earliest point I could, and that didn't remove it.
I have a couple of programs that I tried to uninstall, but are still showing up in my programs too. I suspect they are malicious. I think I got them when I was streaming videos from a site I thought was safe.
Also, when I log in through my son's desktop and use either Firefox or IE, they don't show up. When I log in through my desktop and use IE they don't show up, but when I use Firefox, they do. I also created another user desktop and they tried through there and they don't show up on that new desktop, either.
I have also noticed that there are two files showing up on C: that seem strange.
Computer>OS (C:)>Program Files -- (which I've always noticed) and
Computer>OS (C:)>Program Files (x86) -- (which struck me as odd)
Any ideas? I don't want to have to take it in, but am afraid I might have to. I can't be without this computer for very long since I work at home.
Thanks, in advance, for any input you might have.
