It looks like a process Hijacker, I can turn the program off in task manager, but it reopens after a couple of seconds. I disabled the executable through msconfig but it continues to run at start up. Can anyone help?

Thanks.

I am still getting many pop-ups and fake security scans, I run Malware bytes every day and it always finds a virus or trojan. Can someone please help me?

Alright, SO I got rid of the rogue virus, now my problem is whenever I hit a link in a website it redirects me to phony listings, just random advertisement sites. I can never click a link without it redirecting me to a site other than what I wanted to view. The only way I can view a hyperlink is by right clicking it and adding it as a bookmark or adding it to my favorites list and selecting the link from there, or copy and pasting the full link in the address bar. Otherwise I constantly see adds saying that I won a prize for reputable businesses like Walmart, or Apple, or any other assortment of popular items. I just want to brows the internet like I used to without all these pop ups and fake websites.

Hi there,

I have not seen any problems for a while until yesterday! A fake Virus scanner popped up again. SO I tried running Malware bytes. The scan starts and then CLoses! After that when I click the link to open in I get this error;

Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.

I have been opening other applications that just end up doing the same thing! they start to run and then they close and I can no longer open the program!

I am now running in safe mode to try and troubleshoot this problem. I Uninstalled and reinstalled malwarebytes but I got the same result trying to run it in safe mode! The application opens, then I try to start the scan and it closes and I can no longer open malwarebytes. It gives me the same error above!

WHat is this terrible malware?! Can someone help me? Why the h311 do people make this garbage?

Sorry for my frustration,
Thanks
