For the past week or so I have gotten many popups in new tabs (Chrome and IE) that contain downloads to fake media players some of which have actually downloaded themselves to my computer (I did not install them). I posted a topic in Am I infected? What do I do? but was told to go here for more help. Here is a link to the last topic http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/539435/adware-opens-new-tabs-at-random-times/
As I said in the first topic I made, the virus is not found by any anti-virus, I have tried including, Malwarebytes, Avast, AVG, Superanti Spyware, JRT, eset ,and adwCleaner. The virus has also worked it's way onto two computers that are on my network. Any help getting ride of this virus would be much appreciated.


DDS files are attached below.

I would like to have this topic closed due to some modification I made to my computer.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
