Hello,

I appear to have a virus that AVG, Bull Guard or Windows Defender cannot find. Some web pages I try to access take me to other pages and then I get bombarded with adverts. I have a program going by the name M5T8QL3YW3 which I have disabled in MSCONFIG which has reduced the problem but not solved it. Any ideas?

When I use SAFARI i do not suffer from the problem.

Cheers

I will help you to remove the programme from msconfig for the virus may return.

To fix the problem, I must have a Hyjacthis log.
