I inadvertently downloaded something I shouldn't have; now I have random cloudscout links popping up everywhere. The computer response time is very delayed. Webpages crash randomly for no apparent reason (the page crashed as I had my previous draft of a post typed up). I'm not sure what kind of info you need, but we'll start with this:
OS: Windows 8, 64-bit. Not sure what service pack, if any. Downloaded adwcleaner, malwarebytes, and hitmanpro... All of which found stuff in the first run... I cleaned/deleted as prompted after each one. The thing initially started (or I noticed it) on FF. After I ran the three, I 'reset' FF, but it didn't seem to help, the links were still there. I uninstalled FF. I also downloaded avast.. It found nothing. Please tell me how to proceed.
