Posted 12 March 2014 - 03:28 PM


Last night I made the mistake of being careless about my downloads and I seem to have infected my computer with some sort of adware. This problem showed up within the last 24 hours and I've been working to remove it but none of the programs I've tried have fixed the problem. In the process of my google searches I stumbled upon a similar issue on this site and attempted to follow the same steps but decided it would be smarter to make my own post. Here is what's going on and what I've done




On my browsers (firefox and chrome) some words on web pages are highlighted in blue, double underlined, and link to an ad site, "aol.careerbuilder.com".

When I mouse over the link, there is a small popup with an advertisement which will not disapear until I close the popup.

Everything else seems to be fine.

There may be more problems since I haven't had access to anti-virus for the last month. I own Norton but don't have it with me at school.



My Attempted Fixes:

Reinstalled Chrome

Cleaned OS (C:) drive


Programs I've run (In Order)

  • Windows Defender
  • Alien Respawn (backup)
  • Spybot - Search & Destroy
  • AdwCleaner
  • Junkware Removal Tool


  • Alienware M17x
  • Windows 8 64bit
  • Purchased December 2013

Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!

In my brilliance I never thought to check my browser extensions, talk about looking everywhere but the obvious place.


Big thanks to MakeItBetter for helping me out

Hello Derzzbraz

I would like to welcome you to the Malware Removal section of the forum.

Around here they call me Gringo and I will be glad to help you with your malware problems.

Very Important --> Please read this post completely, I have spent my time to put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier, faster and smoother for both of us!

  • Please do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
    • We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.
  • Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
    • Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.
  • Please read every post completely before doing anything.
    • Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.
  • Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
    • A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.
NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the "Follow This Topic" Button, make sure that the "Receive notification" box is checked and that it is set to "Instantly" - This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.

NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.

NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.

These are the programs I would like you to run next, if you have any problems with one of these just skip it and move on to the next one.


Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Scan.
  • After the scan is complete click on "Clean"
  • Confirm each time with Ok.
  • Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
  • Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.

Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
When they are complete let me have the two reports and let me know how things are running.
