Hello Kit, cool name! but all that aside I have a couple things that will work.
#1 Turn off Windows Defender & Firewall! If you're good at math this will be easy. Firewall (Windows) + Firewall (Comodo) do not mix!!
Disable Windows Firewall asap. Two firewalls interfere with each other okay? Good.
Also Windows Defender is close to useless so disabling it frees up valuable space on your PC.
#2 If you're using Internet Explorer
DON'T do anything crazy like uninstall it BUT Install Either Mozilla Firefox or Opera (my favorite) as a web browser.
That will help the dangerous redirects --------> YES?... Yes
#3 Some like Malwarebytes but I swear by the product SUPERAntiSpyware. It's just better. Updates about 5 times a day!
Do your self a favor and get it.
#4 Don't panic. That's an important one. Some people panic and start deleting valuable files.
5# Make sure your Windows is updated: Control Panel --> System & Security --> Windows Update
Also: Control Panel --> Network & Internet --> Internet Options Click Tab Privacy Make sure it's on Medium High
(I'm on Windows 7 it's probably a similar process for you too.)
Now you will be in much better shape. If you need anything PM me. -ScottPM help is not recommended at BleepingComputer. Please keep all communications on board. - rigel
