Dear....
everyone..

I am in need of some assistance. My default set browser keeps on opening randomly with a redirect to a random 'ad site'. This always occurs when i start up my pc and after that a tab will open every 30min aprox :O!!! I have run TDSS killer, iExplore, Advanced SystemCare Ultimate 9, norton and even windows defender(i got desperate) and nothing is detected... even in safe mode... ive removed entries in (C:Windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts but still nothing:??:

I donno what to do any more.. this is driving me insane.. Could someone please share and provide some infinite knowledge of awesome power with me (and the community of course)
Thanks

Backup all of your bookmarks/favorites, and uninstall the browser. Then try scanning again getting all you can get. Then reinstall the browser.
