Hi, I was wondering if somebody could help me out with a problem I'm having. I'm absolute bleep w/ computers.
Basically, I stupidly downloaded something off of the internet, proceeded to trash it, but now my internet browsing is infected.
This is my screen right now. After downloading that crap I get these blank "Ads by Vidx" things on EVERY page. I click on "Hide these ads" but they don't go away. In addition, I get random phrases linked and pointed to with green arrows that take you to ads such as the one on "computer problem" on almost every page. Also, when I click on links in my Gmail, it takes two clicks because the first one almost always takes me to another ad. Sometimes I'll just click on a random space on a website and it'll take me to an ad that pertains solely to the website content.
Does anyone know how to get rid of this? I've got Adblock Plus. I've tried OpenDNS and ClamXav and nothing seems to be working.
FYI I'm on the latest Mountain Lion w/ Google Chrome.
Thanks for any and all help. I'm really desperate here.
