Hi,

 

I am running off Windows 8

 

Recently I was infected with Blinkx and bought Malware bytes anti-malware and deleted a few suspicious programs. I also deleted Chrome and have gone back to Explorer for the time being.

 

MY computer clearly seems to be still infected even when McAfee Live Safe and Malware bytes are not detecting anything. I am still inundated by ads and google searches go to Yahoo.

 

I have a second problem which is that my external hard dive is showing as G:Local Disk and have posted this on the Hardware board but I'm not sure whether the problems are related or not.
