Boot your computer in Safe Mode w/ Networking, download/install the free version of Malwarebytes' Anti-malware http://www.malwarebytes.org/product... update all available definitions, run a full system scan, remove all threats it finds, and copy/paste the scan log to your next post.

The first time you start Malwarebytes, a window will popup suggesting you sign-up for the trial version of Malwarebytes Pro (the paid version). Tell it no. The free version is more than adequate.

After you're done with Malwarebytes, download/install the free version of SuperAntiSpyware http://www.superantispyware.com/sup... update all available definitions, run a full system scan, remove all threats it finds, and copy/paste the scan results in your next post.

By default SuperAntiSpyware detects and removes tracking cookies. Although not necessarily malicious, they're a good thing to remove anyway. Just don't be alarmed when SAS says you have 100+ threats and they're all tracking cookies.

After you've followed those steps, boot back in normal mode and report back here any noticeable problems you still have.

MBAM and SAS are awesome programs that I recommend you keep installed and weekly run Quick Scans with both. They're on-demand scanners which means they will only scan for malware (viruses, spyware, rootkits, etc.) when you tell them to. This also means they won't interfere with your real-time anti-malware program, of which you should only have 1.

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.
