Hi all, my first post and unfortunately it's because i seem to have picked up a virus.

 

I think the virus comes from redirserv or something similar as thats the beginning of the address before it redirects to whatever pop up it chooses that time, i also have blue lines under text that link to other places and pop up adverts keep appearing in the bottom righ of my screen.

 

I've tried googling it but it tells me i need to delete files from my registry, i son't really feel confident in doing that.

 

Can anyone help

Fixing a virus issue can be very tricky depending on type of infection. Most programs that work are premium ones. Meaning you have to buy it. Since editing a registry is not an oprion for you, the other sure method is doing a system recovery which will wipe out your hard drive and data. While your PC is still functioning, you might want to start backing up your files before trying anything to fix it. At the end you may need to reinstall windows so try doing the registry edit first. If it makes your problem worse, at least you already know that system recovery or reinstallation is your last resort. Backup. Backup. And again, backup first before anything else.

What you describe is most likely "In-text" advertising. You may want to read this topic which explains this type of advertising and the most common ways to remove it.

As a general FYI only.

 

In Firefox AddBlock Plus gets rid of the In Text Adds.
