I get redirected to "Crackle.com" almost every time I try to watch a video on an anime site that is very trustworthy. I even contacted the site administrator and he told me that I might have a redirect virus. I have no idea how I got it but this has never happened before. I know it's not coming from that anime site because I've been on it for a long time. I even reinstalled my laptop and just when I thought the virus was gone, I still got redirected to crackle.com. I'm pretty much annoyed and frustrated and I tried taking it down but some parts were too risky for me since I'm not a professional when it comes to laptops and I didn't want to mess up my laptop. I scanned my laptop with malwarebytes, Avast, and super antivirus. Nothing has came up. Well actually, I did a boot time scan with Avast and it has found something but I don't think it was related to the redirect virus. I did go back to my fav. anime website and I haven't gotten redirected yet but I think I will happen again because I've read that getting rid of this virus is hard because you won't really know if it's really gone or not because it always ... reanimates itself? So I'm kind of paranoid and I'm afraid to type in important information. Is there a way to really make sure that I don't have the redirect virus? I'm not even sure if it's gone.
