OK, so recently my computer has been redirecting me to certain youtube or shopping websites when I click certain random links (repeatedly), and opening pop-up windows (I'm running firefox, btw) when I click any random link on a webpage. How do I get rid of this malware? Your help is greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Please run the following scans and post their logs, they will help find the problem files on your computer.

Download DDS and save it to your desktop.

Disable any script blocker if your Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware has it.
Once downloaded you can disconnect from the Internet and disable your Ant-Virus temporarily if needed.
Then double click dds.scr to run the tool.
When done, the DDS.txt will open.
Click Yes at the next prompt for Optional Scan.

When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
1. DDS.txt
2. Attach.txt

Save both reports to your desktop then post them please.

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from one of these sites:
