Hey there. I'm Mark, a 19 year old college Student from Scotland, UK. Recently I have had a suspected browser hijack, where like 90% of websites stopped working, browser was redirected to pay-on-click websites (the author got money for me being uncontrolably clicking on it), and a lot of popups on I.E (Firefox is my default browser).

Before I start spamming useless information, just tell me what you want to know about the computer, and what I should run and I'll post logs.

P.S I have ran Avira AntiVir, Spybot S&D, and Ad-Aware. The spybot found some of the malware etc, but not all. I couldn't get it cleared from this, so if you need me to run HijackThis, or anything else, just let me know. I've turned on immediate notification for this topic, so just reply and I should instantly reply aswell.

Thanks in advance for any help. Your free help is much appreciated.
