A few days ago I left my home computer unattended (I know big mistake) and my daughter tried to install an online game I halted the installation but some malware/adware managed to get thru.

 

Right after that event I updated and ran Malwarebytes, ADWcleaner both of which detected some malware/adware and proceded to eliminate them.

 

Restarted the computer and everything was good till I started to get random redirects on most browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Opera).

 

Decided to uninstall all browsers to get rid of the redirects and it worked, after the uninstalls Malwarebytes, ADWcleaner found no threats however Hitman Pro and Junk Removel Tool keeps finding the same tracking cookies and Temp Internet Files even after restart .

 

No matter how many times I scan and eliminate those same files seem imposible to get rid of!

I'm on a windows 7 64bit machine.

 

I'm still infected?

 

Thanks in advance for the help.

Nothing malicious in those files or cookies. You can block the Third Party cookies....also known as ad/ tracking cookies from installing in your browsers.

Once you have blocked their install...use CCleaner to remove the existing ones.

How to disable third-party cookies in all major web browsers

 

Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

Do you have an ad blocker installed in your browsers?

If the random redirects persist, you could try restarting your Windows in "safe mode with networking" and doing additional scans with anti-virus and anti-malware software. Sometimes, software might have issues in Windows normal mode. You could also try installing and running RKill before removal. It kills a majority of malicious services and processes. Good luck!
