Are you still being redirected?  If so, in what browser(s)?

No, the redirects went away. I was having problems with a very slow browser response Saturday. Anytime I opened a browser and typed in a subject everything locked up. This coincided with ads that on Facebook that exactly matched my searches. That was a dead giveaway.Yesterday, I was getting similar stuff. I could go to any search and everything locked up until I opened task manager and it would immediately start running again. I did not have to stop any processes, just open it.

There is a good chance that the adware/virus/trojan whatever it was resided on my f drive and went away when I deleted the crap off it. There is also a chance that it goofed something up and that the delay is a leftover setting thing the virus changed.

It is running much better since the reboot today, I do not know why.

I am going to reformat the drive. I do not trust anything once I have been corrupted like that. The problem came back after the last format, but I don't think it will this time.

I thank you much for your help, I wish I had the skills you have for rooting this stuff out.  Gary

 

PS. For Sh*ts and Giggles I decided to run Malwarebytes one more time, it is showing 1 item detected but the scan has not completed. Maybe I am not out of the woods yet. thanks Gary

Here is the problem Malwarebytes found, It was called "Open Candy" and is classified as a "Low Threat". . It was in the  "Jims List" folder. Here is what Trend Micro says about "Open Candy"

 

Infection Channel: Downloaded from the Internet
 

This adware may be unknowingly downloaded by a user while visiting malicious websites.

It does not have any propagation routine.

It does not have any backdoor routine.

It executes the dropped file(s). As a result, malicious routines of the dropped files are exhibited on the affected system.

It does not have any downloading capability.

 

Thanks.. Gary

Hi,

 

So you are going to format your system?  I just want to clarify.  :)

 

Thank you for the kind words by the way.  It is very nice of you to say.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
