and RivalGaming redirect virus

My computer is infected with a virus. All browsers keep on redirecting to I notice these changes after installing another plug-in called RivalGaming Games. I though it is a good program. My son requested to load it on the computer because he wanted to play online games. Now, I found it very annoying to be redirected to various address under addresses. The virus is using different URL, name at the end consist of random characters each time I refresh the page.

The issue now is the virus that comes with My Avast keeps on detecting malicious URL. Also, I noticed that PC has slow-down since the installation of RivalGaming. If I removed this plug-in, my son may not be able to play the games. Are there ways to remove the virus?

    I use Mozilla, and this was a pesky boil on my back. Thank you finally someone that had easy removal instructions. Some sites had me going to the Registry Editor…hopefully this solves the problem I had. I’ve been searching for a week! Thanks again!

    Hi, I installed this but when I enter my IP address it’s not giving me access I can still log in and access the dashboard, but not the pages. I am not working on a local host. How do you enter the number? Should there be spaces, dots separating them? Thanks
