Hey guys. Got a great 37th birthday present. Got some sort of ad bot or malware. Downloaded AVG & Firefox, but still got redirected anytime I do a search & I can't update my AVG. Never went to a community for help, but want to tackle this before I cant even boot up. Been there, done that. :thumbsup:
