i recently got caught with a fake adobe flash update which riddled my brand new PC with malware and adware.
I believe i got rid of most of it, uninstalling what i could, I ran my Avast virus scan (found noithing), ive also run malwarebytes (found LOAAAADS) and ADWCleaner (found lots) but still have adware problems. I then ran HitmanPro and found more. i reset all my browsers (IE chrome and FireFox) a couple of times in all this, they all seem to be clear now.
The only problem im having seems to be in Dota 2, the in game store keeps getting pop-ups from Dealfinder and WindowShopper and it plays audio adverts VERY loudly while i am playing.
i think i have narrowed it down to Dota by running it with no other applications open, and the audio adverts stop when i exit the game. All of the above programs are coming up blank for adware and malware now, apart from HitmanPro that keeps finding tracking cookies in firefox.
I'm on Windows 8.1, i use Avast and Malwarebytes
I'm checking other games to see if the problems exist there as well (games with stores) but none of them have the same problems, adware and malware scanners are coming up clean and as far as i know i dont have any dodgy programs installed. it just seems to be Dota, i tried uninstalling it and reinstalling but the adverts still play however the pop up bubbles trying to sell me toasters and kettles instead of hats for my heroes have disappeared.
what can i do as i obviously have some form of adware, it deafens me while im playing, but none of the scanners are finding anything?
