So for almost a year I have been dealing with these random pop-ups that occur on my desktop when I try to use the internet from time to time(the whole google analytic link that brings me up to some random website or just a blank page). It's never been awful, but just causes my computer to run really slow. I just thought it was some virus on that computer until today. I just got a brand new laptop, brought home, hooked it up to my wireless router and bam! it started happening on this computer. I'm really worried I put viruses on my computer because of it. I spent a decent amount of money on this laptop and I really don't wanna think about the fact that I might have screwed it up already. The weirdest thing about it though is that I disconnected from my wireless, hooked right up through my modem and it just stopped doing it and hasn't done it since I stopped using my wireless. Does that mean my laptop may be okay? or could there be some other things hidden that aren't showing up yet? I just really didn't want to have to download a bunch of stuff off the internet that I'm clueless about to try to fix it when it might not even need to be fixed to begin with. I really hope i can get this figured out. I'm worried to use my laptop now because i don't want to mess it up anymore because i need it for college. Please help! thank you.

Hello it appears your router is hijacked by trojan DNS-hijacker.

First if there are other machines on this router they need to install and update MBAM,DO NOT run yet. You now need to disconnect from the internet. Then scan each PC then reset the router.

Next you must reset the router to its default configuration. This can be done by inserting something tiny like a paper clip end or pencil tip into a small hole labeled "reset" located on the back of the router. Press and hold down the small button inside until the lights on the front of the router blink off and then on again (usually about 10 seconds). If you don?t know the router's default password, you can look it up HERE.
Note: After resetting your router, it is important to set a non-default password, and if possible, username, on the router. This will assist in eliminating the possibility of the router being hijacked again.

As there are other infected machines using the same router, they will need to be cleared with the above steps before resetting the router. Otherwise, the malware will simply go back and change the router's DNS settings. You also need to reconfigure any security settings you had in place prior to the reset. Check out this site HERE for video tutorials on how to properly configure your router's encryption and security settings. You may also need to consult with your Internet service provider to find out which DNS servers your network should be using.

Once you have ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware on the infected system, and reset the router to its default configuration you can reconnect to the internet, and router.



MBAM (MalwareBytes):

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.46) and save it to your desktop.alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Right now I am connected directly through my modem that I got from my internet provider. Am I safe with that or can that be infected too? Like I said before, I am so clueless to this stuff. I still have to download and scan on my laptop. I will post my log for that as soon as the scan is complete. Also, I am very ignorant to technology and stuff like this. Can a xbox or a wii using that same wireless router get infected?

OK did you reset the router as the laptop which was redirecting uses that?

If so did they stop?
