I am running windows 8

 

In all of my web browsers I get popup adds that open in other tabs.

These popup adds range from me needing an update and to ones saying I am infected.

I installed ad block and try to look for any suspicious programs installed on my system or web browser.

I could not find any thing and the ads still persisted.

 

I used the following tools to try and get rid of it.

 

Malwarebytes

Avast

Hitmanpro

Spybot

Ccleaner

 

None of these got rid of the ads

 

So I took things to somewhat extreme measures and did a basic reset with my system. I did not do a factory reset because that would have taken too long and I thought it would have the same result.

 

The adware still remained after the reset.

 

I really need help to remove this virus.

You also may need to look in your browsers add ons / plugins and remove them one at a time to se if one is at fault.
