Hello..
I am new to this Forum and glad to see the expertise working here.

Well I have a problem
I usually stay away from adwares and malwares by using WOT (which is very useful for people who are naive in computers)

But I don't remember when I got this Infection/malware/spyware/adware?....Whenever I type in something on google and follow the search results a new window opens up and suddenly a array of tabs open up with the main link being

hxxp://67.201.36.16/nolink(dot)html

and whatever i type in the google and search for ends up in the tabs which coexist with the above mentioned link...

I have tried malwarebytes and windows defender both of them show that my computer is Fine...I use Avira antivirus and it doesnt show that I am Infected either...
I use Firefox ver:3.5.4

Now if its an adware then why isn't it getting detected and if its not then what is it...? And What do I do to solve this problem...?

Thanks and Regards
Haroun

Hello and welcome, to clean you will need to run HJT/DDS.
Please follow this guide. Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Hijackthis. Then go here HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal ,click New Topic,give it a relevant Title and post that complete log.

Let me know if it went OK.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/268579/adware-problem/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days, up to two weeks perhaps less, to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
