My browsers seem to have been infected (Firefox & IE)
I have put up an ad on one of my sites and the ad shows up when I log on to the site but 2 seconds later the ad changes to adwares saying my computer is infected and other times the ad changes to smiles downloads.

every site that I go to where theres ads they are not the same ads anymore they are all adware ads.
even some thumbnails that I put on my site turn into adware.
when I go to site HijackThis I get this Posted Image

My web browsing is so slow, If I'm not on the net my computer runs fine, so i'm thinking it's my browsers that got infected.
I have run, Lavasoft, Uniblue, Norton, and Spydocter but none of those programs have found my problem.

I really don't want to redo my comp. I just have to much stuff at the moment to save to dvd's

anyone ever have this problem that they can help ?
Thanks

Is this an XP, Vista etc.. PC??
What antivirus and spyware tools are installed?
Have you scanned with them from Safe mode.
Start with this scan as it will run in 2000/XP/2003/Vista.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Acan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.
