I have recently been hit and i have NO idea how this got in my computer, by a malware that infects browsers.
I have both Firefox and Chrome, both with ADBLOCK and ADBLOCK plus, but i am getting hardly spammed by ads, and the pages barely move.
Literaly, the browser is hanging, non responsive, it will barely open a page, and when it dose, it is hell.
Popups, banners, ads, they fill my screen and my harddrive is working nonstop when the browser is on, so something is messing with my browser and PC.
I ran a scan with adw remover, found 3 infections, removed, and not even a change.
I have to mention that i use the browser alot, and 24h ago i know i did not install anything, click on any ad, open any ad, because i use adblock.
I am currently running Dr. Web Cureit, and scanning for potential infections.
Some images will be posted below on the browser page with ads.
What i did so far:
-Adw cleaner scan, removed what it found
-Removed 2 plugins from Firefox which i don't remember the names
-Googled the page that keeps flooding me which is: "http://luu.lightquartrate.com"
-Googled a way to remove this, found only tools that ask for money.
-Went in add/remove programs, found nothing installed recently.
-Task manager, removed the entyty that was running and deleted it from program files.
-Rolled back my browsers.(will not uninstall the browser because of history and personal data loss)
Please help, i hate ads, and no idea how this got in.
