It appears that my browser has been hijacked by Bee Coupons. I have tried to uninstall the program and it won't uninstall. When I type search terms into search bar on Chrome, the path clearly goes through Bee Coupons before taking me to the search listing....after I scroll below the fold through a full page of ads.
I did some basic browser hijack scans on Friday and this worked well for a few days. Today Avast alerted me that I had a severe problem. I ran a full scan, which suggested reboot scan. About 80% of the way through the reboot scan, my computer shut off. It would not turn back on for a while. Finally turned back on and Windows indicated that the start up function was not working, so I ran the suggested start up scan, which found nothing. After turning the computer back off and on, it finally rebooted as normal, although very slow.
I ran another Avast virus scan and it indicated no threats. However, opening any programs takes forever.
