Solved Help me pleaseee... Pop-ups etc

Specs: Windows 8, i5 2500, 6gb 1800mhz
Hello all, I am in dire need of help, Using Chrome I keep getting pop-ups and web pages redirecting, also redirecting in Internet Explorer 10. I don't want to use a pop up blocker as it keeps messing up certain pages with clickable buttons.

I have tried Malwarebytes, AVG, Windows security essentials, Hijack this, spybot and some other software to remove this virus/malware. It fixed some problems but not this one. nothing has worked, so I then formatted... and bang, guess what? the stupid pop-ups are STILL there. Could it be something to do with me logging into chrome with my email for my bookmarks etc?

By the way im using Windows 8 64-bit. Could it have anything to do with me signing into my hotmail for this pc? any help would be appreciated. In desperate need of help.


EDIT: ok so I logged into another pc with my chrome account, and the pop-ups appear, what can I do ?

Pop-ups can be greatly eliminated by the use of a pop-up blocker, there's no other way if you want to get rid of them. There are even annoying pop-up ads here on so I installed AdBlock from the Google Chrome extensions library, works very well:

The re-direction problem is a different issue, caused by "browser hijack" malware.
There are several different ones, identified by the URL it re-directs to. Post that URL in a new thread and someone will help you get rid of it.

✔ Best Answer
A re-direction is quite easy to fix. Download and install these 3 free progs and DO NOT reboot untill after the last scan.
1- rkill.exe
2- tdss killer
3- malwarebytes

If normal mode does not fix the problem...try again in safe mode

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions 7 Golds
