Now, the pop-up ads appear around every 30-60 minutes (varies) through IE. Also, I noticed that the iexplore.exe process was running even though I closed the ad and all associated windows. When I ended the process, iexplore.exe, IE just opens again with alerts such as the Microsoft Phishing Filter, if I want to set IE as my default browser, and an alert about Privacy and Cookies. It's a never ending cycle everytime I try to close the process again, with the same alerts showing up and the process showing up again. There was also an instance where two processes with the name, iexplore.exe, were running.
I ran MBAM, and it removed some malware. I then ran Avast!, and it removed another malware and a trojan. I then ran CCleaner and used it to delete my Temporary Internet Files. I then ran Spybot, and it removed a lot of spyware from my computer. However, after all of that, the popup ads still appear along with IE starting again everytime I end the process.
At this point, I really don't know what else to do. Has anyone experienced anything similar to this? All help will be appreciated.
