Mod Edit: Moved to Am I Infected ~~ boopme

I am experiencing a unique problem of redirection to tradeadxchange.com / alibaba and a host of other webpages that appear as new tabs.
I performed a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro from a ISO downloaded from the Microsoft site and the problem still persists on opening Edge. What is possibly wrong?
I am a non-computer person and the redirection is really bugging me.
Please suggest a solution.
Thanks..

Hello,

did you perform a custom installation? Did you really erase all windows related partitions?

Do you use a local user account or a Microsoft account? If you login with a Microsoft account, Microsoft keeps various user settings for you and restores them after a clean installation.

Hi Ralf,

Thanks. I performed a custom install and erase all partitions related to Windows. I am also using a local account and did not log in to my Microsoft account. What do I do next? I have also figured that the redirection is in all browsers and not Edge alone.

Hi Ralf,

Thanks. I've already tried these fixes-stumbled upon them earlier as a result of a Google search. HitmanPro is the only scanner that discovers "some errors" and rectifies or deletes them. This sanitisation works for a while but the tradeadexchange redirects reappear after some activity!

Hello,

did you try Zemana AntiMalware (https://malwaretips.com/blogs/run-a-scan-with-zemana-antimalware/) ?

Hi Ralf,

Zemana AntiMalware worked for a few days post installation but the redirects are back with a vengeance! Help!

Hello,

please use another computer to download the Windows 10 ISO file again and use another usb pendrive for a fresh install.

Install your preferred anti-virus software and update it. Install Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Free (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-exploit/).

Install software only from trustworthy internet sites. Avoid pirated software, keygens, cracking tools, peer-to-peer file sharing programs and bundled software.

Install only one program and watch for suspicious activities for a wile. Install the next and so on. So you should be able do identify the malicious program or browser addon.

Please read this carefully:
