Hello! Newbie here! I'm no computer whiz by far, but I know enough to get into trouble
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium on my laptop. I must have unknowingly downloaded some malware by the name of "ExtraShopper". Windows pop up on my screen, sometimes 3-5 at a time and in the bottom of the window it says "Ads by ExtraShopper". After some Googling, it turns out it also goes by the name "Shopper Pro".
I purchased and installed Malware Bytes and while that slowed them down, it didn't eliminate them completely.
I then purchased and installed Norton Antivirus and it had the same effect.
Now they show up usually when I'm on eBay, Amazon or some other "shopping" site, but not on other sites. The virus also highlights words in articles in blue and if you pass over them with your mouse it opens a window. Occasionally when I click on a legitimate link (like to continue reading a story on MSN.com) it will open a new tab and sometimes its X rated! I don't know if this is the same "Extra Shopper' or another problem.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
