FYI: A few weeks ago, I was attacked with a trojan/virus that held my computer hostage/ransom -trying to get me to download their antivirus program while not letting me open any other programs. I reran in safemode, found the virus through Eset scanner and removed (or so I thought) but unfortunately, the ransom program was still operating in 'normal mode' and wouldn't let me open any files. Finally, I restored the computer and was fine. A week ago, I reran and found via Eset another different virus/trojan and it removed it (I think).
I noticed that before, during and after these attacks, I have been encountering the Oops broken link message when I go to websites. I don't know if this is related to virus/malware or if this is a different issue.
I recently ran Spyware Blaster, Spybot Search and Destroy, Avira AntiVir, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Eset scanner, Securnia osi scanner, Panda, Windows Defender; updated some unsecure programs, did a disc cleanup/defragmenter. Everything is coming up clean.
Still getting the Oops message. Any ideas?
