I have some sort of Adware on my system that keeps redirecting me to random pages on the internet and I can't work out how to get rid of it, I've tried manually searching for it, using Avira, Avast, Malwarebytes, Adwarecleaner, Hitman pro and all sorts of other programs but nothing picks it up, any suggestions?

step 1 is to stop any malware services from running use rkill for this http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/


step 2 run adw cleaner or rougekiller for adware http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/ http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/roguekiller/


reboot to save changes then test


if you notice the infection survived, repeat steps one and two followed by deleting all restore points


Open System by clicking the Start button, right-clicking Computer, and then clicking Properties.
In the left pane, click System protection. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Under Protection Settings, click Configure.
Under Disk Space Usage, click Delete.
Click Continue, and then click OK.

Have you tried running those scans while in safe mode? Some are able to hide themselves when Windows loads normally. Safe mode will bypass some (not all) of them allowing the cleaners to get rid of them.

Try going through your programs list and uninstalling any programs that you do not recognize. Some of them could be adware toolbars and addons. Or you could try to reinstall your browser or reset the settings if it is IE.
