Hi, my name is Daniel and this is my first post, I'm glad to form part of this community.

 

For almost 3 months now, every website that i visit that isn't encrypted on every browser (from Mozilla Firefox, game launchers like Steam or NVIDIA Geforce Experience, to even the designated safe browser from my current antivirus which is Bitdefender Safepay) has some kind of Russian pop ups, and it's getting pretty annoying since I've tried almost every cleaner, antivirus, and removal programs that exists. I have also followed other 3 similar threads in this website that happened to have similar problems as mine and coincidentally also happened to be situated in Mexico. I did similar things like resetting my router to factory settings to also checking the Hosts files and flushing DNS cache, but the issue still persists.

 

I am actually desperate for a solution or at least explanation of what's going on and why is it such a rare problem.

 

Thanks to anyone reading this, I really hope that there is some kind of solution, I will comply to any need of more specific information.

 

Here are some screenshots of the problem:

  • Click the Scan tab at the top of the program window, select Threat Scan and click the Scan Now button.
  • If you receive a message that updates are available, click the Update Now button (the update will be downloaded, installed, and the scan will start).
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • If potential threats are detected, ensure that Quarantine is selected as the Action for all the listed items, and click the Apply Actions button.
  • While still on the Scan tab, click the link for View detailed log, and in the window that opens click the Export button, select Text file (*.txt), and save the log to your Desktop.
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can also be viewed by clicking the History tab and then selecting Application Logs.
POST THE LOG FOR MY REVIEW.

Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts.
Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process.
If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.
