Lets start. I just got a new gpu and wanted to render some free intros in blender, but after downloading some from ifreshd ( On youtube ) i got these web pop-ups called 'hijackers' ( Atleast i read so ). If its a file, it doesnt get detected by the only anti-virus i have, Kaspersky. Theyre pretty annoying, cause if im playing a game and got some music up and running on youtube, i cant really do it, cause after a while, the web page called marketgid.com pops up and kicks me out of the game ( It doesnt close the game, it just automatically pauses it and goes to that new web tab with the page open, im using Chrome btw ). Could someone please help ?
Just now, i remembered cause it poped up, i got another pop-up, Wonderlandads.com that gets blocked by the Kaspersky web addon. + Ive tried to reset the settings on chrome 3 times now, no change. Havent tried reinstalling it tho.
As this is a prebuilt system ( With some upgrades ), it has visited a pc shop to install a copy of Windows 10 for 40 euros, with all offices ( Excel, Word, Power Point etc. ) Also they included a 1 year subscription for Kaspersky.
Yep, everything that was web pop-up related was in Chrome folders. mail.ru was the main one, with bunch of others. If this helps and there wont be any pop-ups in 1 day, gonna mark your answer as the solution! Thanks.
Whenever someone has problems like this, I recommend a boot-time scan. Malware/adware like this can re-propagate itself over the net. Try disconnecting your Internet and running a "full scan" with Avast and whatever program you currently have installed (Avast 2017 can use Passive Mode if you like, so you can have it available as a scanner only) Both Free and Paid versions support this. https/www.avast.com/en-us/compare-antivirus
