Please help me with this. I have done adware removal multiple times, but the problem returns. Now more often than earlier.
Around a month ago, I found out that I installed some browser hijacker somehow. It has been infecting all my browsers, popping up ourluckysites, searchinme, etc.
I have noticed some more things along with the issue with the browser. Almost every time I switch on the laptop, I need to check if my Windows Defender is working. It is usually not turned on by itself. It takes some time in manually turning it on. It regularly asks for updating, even when the automatic updating is on. And often, the icon of Defender simply disappears from the taskbar. Some random game links appear on the desktop. On restarting the computer, and then manually turning on Defender, things work fine only to get bad again at some point of time.
I have unistalled and reinstalled browsers (commonly Chrome) many times. Corrected the search engine settings. I have cleaned using Adware removal tools multiple times in past. I notice many random "snare" and "kitty" containing folders appear and being deleted by the tool(s). But they appear again and again.
