A few days ago I got the windows xp 2010 mal ware. I followed some of the instructions i found on here to get rid of it. im not sure if something i did in that process was wrong, or if i ran into a completely different problem. Basically, the windows xp 2010 mal ware stuff stopped popping up. everything ran fine for like 30 minutes. then i noticed a started randomly getting those "wanring your system is infected please click here to complete scan" with a fake scanning looking pop up, it didnt look the same as the windows xp 2010 malware did either. it woudl let me exit out and it wouldnt pop up anymore so id run Malware bytes and everything would be fine. then a few time i got redirected to random sites.
Then yesterday I noticed everytime im online im constantly getting redirected. it started with clicking on links and also random new tabs would open and goto some site. (belgiumpersonals.com or yellowpages.com or weird ad sites). Now its like new browsers pop up, tabs open up, and almost every link i click on redirects in both firefox and IE.
I keep running malware bytes but the problem doesnt stop. im running an avg scan now.
what is happening and what do i do to fix it?
thanks to anyone who can help in advance :thumbsup:
