Hey all,

 

I have tried to get this thing off my computer for the last day or so.  THe random popups occur when I click on any links or even within the browser window.  

 

Have run everything and "removed" stuff via: rkill, malwarebytes, freefixer, tdsskiller, roguekiller, jrt, hitmanpro, adw, etc...both in safe mode and regular mode.  This thing is still on my machine and creates random popups for various ads pertaining to virus removal.  I cannot find the actual name of the program.  The domain that malwarebytes is blacking, the name is: nan dot mashfsttest dot com/.  I am suspecting a PUP virus perhaps.

 

I am using Windows 8.1.  Chrome Version 44.0.2403.130.  

 

Thanks for your assistance.

Having done all that, it seems we need a deeper look. Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.
From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.
Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
The current wait time is 1 - 3 days and ALL logs are answered.
If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
