Okay, I've had this problem for weeks. Every now and then, some shady webpage randomly pops up on my web browser. A lot of times, when I click on a result of a Google search, it redirects me (but not always) to a different website. I've tried Microsoft Security Essentials, Avast, SpyBot, Malwarebytes, they either detect nothing or the damn virus is still there after being apparently detected and removed! Not to mention that I've been randomly attacked with viruses a few times while I was browsing YouTube or a website I can trust or while doing nothing! I try my best to avoid any suspicious websites, but it seems like these damn cyber-criminals have ME targeted for some reason. I get these scam emails almost every day, which automatically gets directed to my junk folder.

I'm scared that these bastards will eventually steal my financial information if they haven't already! I want this madness to stop!

Thank you for your help!

I did a scan with the TDSSKiller, it found something and got rid of it. After a reboot, I followed up with a full scan from Malwarebytes, it found nothing. I haven't had this problem since.

Hi Candlemass91,

You're welcome. Now to check for any leftovers you should run ESET free online scanner http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner
