Spyware that has so far not identified itself. This is a used computer that I've owned for several months and has run fine until yesterday so I assume it's my fault, but I don't know the history of the computer. I installed MalwareBytes, and it scanned and removed some objects, but would only work in safe mode. When I rebooted, MalwareBytes would alert me to malicious internet access and then my computer would hard reset. I had to restore to a previous restore point before installing MalwareBytes and now my computer will occasionally hard reboot for no reason. If I attempt to go to the lavasoft site I am redirected to different sites, ave 99, validclick.net, the-consumer-reporter.org. And several others. The spyware has not identified itself in any way. I know you're very busy, any help is much appreciated. Thank you so much!
