Hello,

 

I have some annoying problems recently with my computer. I am using Windows 8 and Chrome and some links keep opening up when I simply try to click on a secure page. 

 

links like http://rvzr-a.akamaihd.net/sd/wrap-0.01.html?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.adcash.com%2Fscript%2Fpop_packcpm.php%3Fk%3D5299a2ee2678e424644.1071072%26h%3Da3889226baf5907140ac85f1648fdca55b6c23c6%26id%3D0%26ban%3D424644%26r%3D195299%26ref%3Dh%26data%3D%26subid%3D

 

or something like cts.lipixesltrack.com and others

 

Also, there are double undrlined words within text that open a small ad window for awardhotspot.com and other sites.

 

I tried to simply follow the instrunctions given in a similar post I found here but that did not work so I am quite desperate now!

 

Please please please help! Thank you!!

These are the instructions I followed:

 

For the next few scans How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus

:step1: Please download Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) to your desktop.
There are 2 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them.

You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.

rKill.exehttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/10/
iExplore.exe (renamed rKill.exe): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/11/

* Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
* A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
* If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
Do not reboot until instructed.
* If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.

If normal mode still doesn't work, run the tool from safe mode.
When the scan is done Notepad will open with rKill log.
Post it in your next reply.

NOTE. rKill.txt log will also be present on your desktop.

 

 

:step2: Please download Junkware Removal Tool by thisisu to your desktop
Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.

Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
The tool will open and start scanning your system.
Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.

 

 

   :step3:  Make sure your Antivirus is enabled again -

 

   :step4:   Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode to your desktop.
* Close all open programs and internet browsers.
* Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
* Click on Scan. (Only Once)
* Check the listed items and untick any you do not want removed.
* Click on Clean (Only Once) and confirm with OK if asked
* NOTE : Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
* Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
* You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S0].txt as well.

 

 

 

   :step5:  Download Security Check by Screen317 from HERE

* Save it to your Desktop.
* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
Note: If a security program requests permission to access the Internet, allow it to do so.

 

 

:step6:  Download MiniToolBox, Save it to your desktop and run it.

Close any Firefox browsers you may have open
Checkmark the following boxes:
•Flush DNS
•Report IE Proxy Settings
•Reset IE Proxy Settings
•Report FF Proxy Settings
•Reset FF Proxy Settings
•List content of Hosts
•List IP configuration
•List last 10 Event Viewer log
•List Installed Programs
•List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
•List Minidump Files
 
Click Go and copy / paste the result (Result.txt).

 

- Last of the bunch -

Please download Temp File Cleaner by Old Timer
Usage Instructions:

  • Download TFC from the download link above and save the file on your desktop.
  • Close ALL running applications as TFC will terminate them before attempting to clean up the temporary files.
  • Double-click on the TFC icon.
  • When the program opens, click on the Start button.  TFC will terminate the Explorer process and all running applications and then begin the process of cleaning out all of your temp folders.
  • When done, press OK to reboot your computer and finish the cleanup.
