Recently my computer started just surfing on its own without any browser. It just starts popping up on a series of websites many with various versions of question-search.com or some other "whatever"-search.com on its own. It will start from basic windows or interrupt while we are on Netflix or just about anytime it wants unless it is turned off or unplugged from the internet.


It ends up hogging 100% of CPU usage when viewed on the task manager. I ran Spybot, MalwareBytes, AdwCleaner and HitmanPro (build 216 whatever that means). All to no avail. I got rid of Somoto or something like that and tons of other malware/uselessware but my computer is still a zombie.


Anyone have any ideas on this? I would really appreciate it

Chris it appears you have something stronger than those tools handle. You need to repost.

We need to get a deeper look. Please follow this Preparation Guide, do steps 6,7 and 8 and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.
