Hello. Today, while I was browsing the Internet, I saw a pop-up box that appears on taskbar or system tray of the screen. It is showing various web addresses like shopping-things-mall.com, imnjuhost.com, searchvhb.com, spns.night-hawk.net, flashtalking.com, solocpm.com, and criteo.com. There are instances that these names are hijacking my browser.
I have run virus scan using my own AVG antivirus and it founds nothing. Next, Hijackthis scan shows me the names in the results but it didn’t specify whether they are virus or some kind of malware. My last scan, I used Spybot Search and Destroy. Same as the others, the last scan did not detect any infection.
I tried manually removing the virus via MSConfig and Registry Editor but couldn’t find any doubtful entry.
In the past few days, I regularly download games and cheats. Probably I have acquired a virus from one of the file I executed. I really don’t know what to do. So, please help me remove the pop-up ads and browser redirects.
