Adchoices is following me around everywhere! Can't seem to get rid of it.

I have ran malware bytes and adware cleaner and it is still there! I normally use Chrome

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers!

Hello there,

 

:step1: Uninstall some programs

 

There's currently some programs on your PC that we need to remove, for the time-being at least. Press the Windows + R key on your keyboard and type in appwiz.cpl and press enter. Navigate to each of the following below one-by-one and click uninstall:

  • AVG Web TuneUp
  • SpyHunter
  • SpyHunter 4

:step2: From your Security Check log, it seems you have no anti-virus installed on your computer. This is quite dangerous! I recommend you install Avast Free Antivirus (or at-least for the time being): http://www.avast.com/en-us/index. The following programs need updating, click them for instructions on how to do so:

:step3: Download and run AdwCleaner

  1. Click here to download AdwCleaner to your desktop.
  2. Double click adwcleaner_x.xxx.exe. If prompted, click I agree.
  3. Click scan. When it's finished, select clean.
  4. Allow AdwCleaner to restart your computer.
  5. Once you've restarted, a log should appear. Please post this in your next reply.

:step4: Download Junkware Removal Tool

  1. Click here to download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  2. Double click JRT.exe. (Win 7 and Vista users, right-click and select run as admin)
  3. Press any key and the scan will begin.
  4. At the end, a log will open. Please post this in your next reply.

For one last final step, please download Delfix from here and save it to your desktop. Right-click it and select run as administrator. Select the following and press run:

  • Remove disinfection tools
  • Purge system restore

Happy surfing!

Looks like a bad browser extension was the culprit in your case.
