Hi, My windows 8.1 laptop has been infected with what I assume is some rather sneaky malware. It all started when my girlfriend was surfing and Avast picked up an infection and promptly quarantined it. After that most of our browsing has been redirected and were locked into a proxie server. I've used Malwarebites, AdwCleaner and Hitman Pro to try to remove the infection but it continues instantly. I'm unable to use system restore and the option to turn the proxie off is unavailable. Hope you guys can help.

There are both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool available. Please pick the version that matches your operating system's bit type.

  • Double-click the downloaded icon to run the tool.

  • When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
