Specs: Windows *
When I'm using my computer, there are two different places that seem to have been given over to companies to market themselves, which is fine. However, I don't care to listen to those adds, so I've tried pausing them and/or muting them which works for a short period of time. Somehow, they then start up again, even (and this is THE MOST FRUSTRATING THING) when I've left that site, gone to another, and I'm watching some type of show or movie on my PC, it begins playing yet again! So I pause, go back to the site (I thought I'd closed) do it all over again, and go back to what I was watching or doing. It's just become so ridiculous & I don't know how to stop it. The worst offenders are here, on this page as I'm filling this out: "Fashion Theater", "Delsyum" & "Lysol". Please help! I'm not much of a techie, so I need easy to understand DIY answers:-) Thanks for your time!!

You are more than likely infected, lets check.

Run Defogger & then Combofix.
Double click DeFogger to run the tool.
The application window will appear
Click the Disable button to disable your CD Emulation drivers
Click Yes to continue
A 'Finished!' message will appear
Click OK
DeFogger may ask you to reboot the machine, if it does - click OK
Do not re-enable these drivers until otherwise instructed.
This program can enable and disable CD emulation, often required in removing difficult malware. Some CD Emulation programs use a hidden driver that may be seen as a rootkit or that will interfere with the proper operation of the anti-rootkit scanner.
Run ComboFix. Copy & Paste the contents of the log please. ComboFix's log should be located at C:\COMBOFIX.TXT.
A guide and tutorial on using ComboFix
Manually restoring the Internet connection
"There are circumstances ComboFix will hang, crash or stall at various stages due to malware interference, failure to disable other real-time protection tools or the presence of CD Emulators (Daemon Tools, Alchohol 120%, Astroburn, AnyDVD) so that it does not complete successfully. Also, depending on how badly a system is infected, ComboFix may take longer to complete its routine than it normally does or fail to run properly. While that is not normal behavior, it is not unusual"
If you think it's frozen, look at the computer clock.
If it's running, Combofix is still working.
Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.
ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed.
***It's strongly recommended to have the Recovery Console installed before doing any malware removal.***
**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will automatically proceed with its scan.
The Recovery Console provides a recovery/repair mode should a problem occur during a Combofix run.
Allow ComboFix to download the Recovery Console.
Accept the End-User License Agreement.
The Recovery Console will be installed.
You will then get this next prompt that asks if you want to continue the malware scan, select yes.
If after running Combofix you discover none of your programs will open up, and you recieve the following error: "Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion". Then the answer is to REBOOT the machine, and all will be corrected.
Can't Install an Antivirus - Windows Security Center still detects previous AV
We are almost ready to start ComboFix, but before we do so, we need to take some preventative measures so that there are no conflicts with other programs when running ComboFix. At this point you should do the following:
* Close all open Windows including this one.
* Close or disable all running Antivirus, Antispyware, and Firewall programs as they may interfere with the proper running of ComboFix. Instructions on disabling these type of programs can be found in this topic.
Once these two steps have been completed, double-click on the ComboFix icon found on your desktop. Please note, that once you start ComboFix you should not click anywhere on the ComboFix window as it can cause the program to stall. In fact, when ComboFix is running, do not touch your computer at all. The scan could take a while, so please be patient.
