No worried on the log for now... Let's do the following:

Remove the Adware

  • Please close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on adwcleaner_xxxx.exe to run the tool.
  • Press Scan, wait for it to finish, and then hit Clean.
  • Your computer will be rebooted automatically. If it does not, please reboot the computer manually.
  • Once it is restarted and you're back in Windows, double-click adwcleaner_xxxx.exe, hit "Logfile." On the Cleaning tab, double-click the latest logfile, copy the contents, and paste it into your next reply.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[Sx].txt as well.





Fix with Junkware Removal Tool

Please download Malwarebytes' Junkware Removal Tool and save the file to your desktop.

  • Right-click on the JRT.exe or Junkware Removal Tool icon and select Run as Administrator to start the tool.
  • Follow the prompts and let this process run uninterrupted.
  • This scan can take a while, depending on your System specs.
  • Upon completion, a log (JRT.txt) will open on your desktop.


Please include the contents of that file in your reply.

Please also manually reboot your machine after this procedure.




ESET SCANNER:

  • Please visit the ESET Online Scanner website
  • Click the SCAN NOW button to download the esetonlinescanner_enu.exe file to the Desktop
  • Double click esetonlinescanner_enu.exe. Accept the Terms of Use
  • Select Enable detection of potentially unwanted applications
  • In Advanced Settings: make sure that Clean threats automatically is unchecked
  • And Enable detection of potentially unsafe applications, Enable detection of suspicious applications, Scan archives, and Enable Anti-Stealth technology are all checked.
  • Click Scan
  • The program will begin to download it's virus database. The speed may vary depending on your Internet connection.
  • When completed, the program will begin to scan. This may take several hours. Please, be patient.
  • Do not do anything on your machine as it may interrupt the scan.
  • When completed it'll show a list of "Threats found", click beneath it on Save to text file.... and save it as ESET log.txt on your Desktop.
  • Then click Do not clean. Place a checkmark at Delete application's data on close, click Finish and close the program.
  • Please copy and paste the log it generated (the one you just saved on your Desktop) here.

Don't forget to re-enable previously switched-off protection software!
