1) fake anti-virus software prevents pages from being visited (screenshot: http://i55.tinypic.com/mrzd4x.jpg)
2) browser redirects to random advertisement sites at random times
3) can't access windows update (screenshot: http://i51.tinypic.com/35cg45j.jpg)
I tried using the following:
- Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
I'm not sure if I used the above tools correctly though (used them in safemode with networking). They picked up some other things but didn't seem to eliminate the problems.
I've removed fake anti-virus software before but I'm not sure what the name of this malware/spyware is called, so I couldn't google much about them.
