First off, please know I appreciate all advice and insight that may be offered. I know volunteers handle these pleas for help and I'd like to thank you in advance. smile.gif

Attempting to visit websites leads my url to be redirected. Watching the urls stream across the bottom of my screen yields several results before settling upon one. If I search for tech-related sites, numerous spyware removal options and things of that nature show up. Sometimes I can reach the site I'm attempting to visit, but it takes minimum five tries. A plethora of pop-ups are also trying to (for lack of a better description) pop up but are being blocked. My registry is full of urls to adult websites, fake malware/virus/etc removal websites, casino websites, pharmacy websites, you get my drift. I would estimate there are easily hundreds of them listed in there. I have tried all the usual suspects for removal (Symantec AntiVirus, Ad-Aware, all the free scans available on Microsoft's Security site). Windows Defender won't load, as won't Spybot Search and Destroy. Trying to download Microsoft Essentials and Webroot scans are met with failure. I have completed the Ad-Aware and Symantec scans both in regular mode and also Safe mode with no results. Long story short, no happy happy, no joy joy. Here are the text logs from the requested scans.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

Please include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.

Even if you have already provided information about your PC, we need a new log to see what has changed since you originally posted your problem.
  1. Please download OTL from following mirror:
  2. Save it to your desktop.
  3. Double click on the icon on your desktop.
  4. Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
  5. Push the button.
  6. Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:
    • OTL.txt <-- Will be opened
    • Extra.txt <-- Will be minimized

In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see a button called Options. If you click on this in the drop-down menu you can choose Track this topic. I suggest you do this and select Immediate E-Mail notification and click on Proceed. This way you will be advised when we respond to your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.

After 5 days if a topic is not replied to we assume it has been abandoned and it is closed.

regards myrti

is that a bird?  a plane? nooo it's the flying blueberry!

If I have been helping you and haven't replied in 2 days, feel free to shoot me a PM! Please don't send help request via PM, unless I am already helping you. Use the forums!
