Your computer must be infected by some kind of spyware. Be sure to download and install a legitimate anti-spyware software on your computer. You can choose from malwarebytes antimalware, superantispyware and spybot. All are free and does a great job at detecting and removing spyware. Download links: http://www.pcrisk.com/top-spyware-r...

That is usually a sign of an unwanted rootkit.
Use these free cleaners in this order:
1- rkill.exe
2- tdss killer
3- Malwarebytes
Run them till they are clean

Turn OFF YOUR CAPS it means you are shouting ad is bad etiquette.

I tried everything that was suggested for my pages redirecting, but as I am typing this I am listening to an advertiser talk about his product he is selling. I have put my pc in the shop once for this & it seemed to slow down when I got it back, but it was still there. Help! I have malware bytes, spybot search & destroy, Microsoft security, & I installed adaware & another program called Hitman Pro 3.5. It seemed to find a lot of cookies that had these adservers names on it, but it did not remove from my computer. If someone could tell me where these annoying and potentially dangerous programs are hiding where I can delete from pc, I would be so grateful.

so you tried response #2?
Sounds like you still have a rootkit installed

Hitman Pro 3.5. It seemed to find a lot of cookies that had these adservers names on it, but it did not remove from my computer.
How could they not be removed? Hitman pro gives you options.

Yes I tried response #2 first. it didn't work. Today, I installed another program called Super Anti Spyware. I just restarted my computer & it is still doing it. Can I manually delete this rootkit?

I HAD THIS EXACT PROBLEM FOR MONTHS AND JUST SOLVED IT.

Antiviurus DOESN'T work.

If using Firefox you must install an add-on called NoScript. It stops unwanted scripts from running on web pages and TOTALLY stops it jumping to unwanted web pages.

If you then want to allow certain scripts to run on web pages (which you will want to do from time to time) you authorise it using a little button that sits at bottom right of your page.

Google 'mozilla no script' or go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fi...

It works, yippee!

Peace everyone,
From Australia
