Hi all! What’s up? Hopping someone can help me…

I recently somehow managed to download some adware from somewhere I’m not sure how or where. All I know is that I keep getting security popups which look legit but then take you to a website asking you to download software called malware crush.

Also I occasionally get the page I’m on taken over and changed to a website ppcsecure, and my homepage is continually changed too.

Can someone please direct me to a decent website with FREE software to remove this stuff. It’s happening every 2 or 3 minutes and its driving me craaazy!

It's a swindle. Do not make confidence has this kind of things.

For resolving your problem:

Download Smitfraudfix: (Thanks to S!RI).
Run Smitfraudfix.exe and choose option 1,a rapport will be created.
Copy and take it here.

OK, so... If your Antivirus won't remove that, you probably need new stuff. Here’s a list:

Avast Antivirus The best free AV out there.

Arovax Antispyware and Ad-Aware.

That should clean your system pretty well, a really good idea is to get Hijack This and post the log on a forum, this one is pretty good. Hope your problem gets fixed soon.

Tell me if one of these is woring.
