Hey guys :)


I have pop-ups appearing when using websites (some more than others, facebook seems fine but I get loads when on this forum for example) and lots of links redirect me to pop-ups etc. This appears to have gotten worse since I began trying to fix my initial problem, which was that I was getting bombed (constant spam of new tabs) in google chrome or internet explorer when the 'Blizzard app' was open.


I have previously spoken to an Advisor on this forum, who linked me here and gave me instructions on what I should do after we attempted to fix the problem. I have tried multiple methods so far to fix the issues I was having with Blizzard app and pop-up spam, to no avail (the problem has got worse as now I struggle to use sites like this at all because of pop-ups/re-directs/dodgy links). I feel it would be easier if I just link you to my original thread so you can get a better idea of what has been happening, what I have tried and also the logs for the programs that I have run so far (https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/646002/help-please/).


My problems with Blizzard app 'seem' to be time sensitive, that is, I can leave the app open for most of the day but around 9/10pm GMT chrome would open itself and start the spam (like 40 tabs open and continuing to open them until the PC goes really slow and I have to use task manager to first close the blizzard app and then chrome, otherwise it would just re-open chrome). Since trying to fix all this there seem to be other problems occurring (I have random pop-ups when visiting some sites, sometimes a white box that covers the screen and tries to redirect me somewhere (not clicked) and reimage repair and sex-game pop-ups etc. as well as dodgy links that re-direct me to ad-pages. :( 


Any help would be much appreciated, I will attach the requested logs as requested. :) 


Kind Regards

Mr b0unZz

Hey nasdaq, 


We left both Chrome and the Blizzard app open all night last night and no issues! Also nothing coming up in browser or links being re-directed, you are quite literally a miracle worker!! I'll keep an eye on it over the next few days to make sure nothing else comes up or if the problem occurs again (I'm still worried it might as before it only happened at certain times, I feel like whoever is doing it could have just taken the night off) and then post another response letting you know either way in a few days time. 


I can't believe the work that you guys do, especially voluntarily - it's amazing! Keep it up!


Kind Regards

Mr b0unZz
