Yes, I am having the same exact problem and have been for a couple of days.
I have run Malwarebytes AND AVG full computer scans several times and have come up with several threats. When I remove them, it does not seem to help.
This morning, my Internet connection has been terminated, I can't even get online on that computer. I have never had that happen before and can only assume that it is associated with the virus.
Also, I hadn't thought anything of it before, but for the past week or more I've been getting little messages from AVG saying that the program Firefox is detecting unusually high usage. The thing is, I would only be on one site, normally one of my three or four normal, everyday sites that I visit. So, it's not as if I'd be doing anything that would warrant unusually high usage. Very strange... don't know if it's related, but just thought I would relay the message.
I feel that this must be a newer virus or something because there is such a lack of information online about it. Problem with that is that there doesn't seem to be anyone that can guide us through getting our computers back to running properly.
I am NO computer tech by any means... but I am currently trying to run a full Malwarebytes scan in "Safe Mode" to see if it helps.
I once had a bad virus before and running it in Safe Mode did help fix the problem, so... fingers crossed, it will help again.
I will update with any progress.
