I have looked EVERYWHERE but it seems like i'm the only one getting this problem.


 Two days before, my computer started showing these weird russian ads out of nowhere. At first i thought it was a normal thing, but then i noticed that i was running adblock and so, it shouldn't be possible for those ads to be there. I started looking into it and found that every single web browser in my computer was showing these ads. I have run Avast, Adaware, Ccleaner, Malwarebytes and found nothing at all, yet the ads are still there. Worth mentioning that these ads wont pop up on google pages like youtube, nor in facebook. And somehow my phone has the same issue! I'm really desperate right now... please help

I advise you to uninstall Adaware.
  • Download Adwcleaner from this link : http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/ onto your desktop.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Press the Scan Button, Once its finish scanning press the Clean Button.
  • A logfile will automatically open after the scan has finished.
  • Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S0].txt as well.

Do you have a router? If you do, reset it using these instructions and set a strong username and password for it afterwards.
