I have been hijacked by some adware that opens the website linked above every boot cycle. I also see the cmd pop up for a split second every half an hour or so, barely even noticeable but it's there. I have tried avast, malwarebytes and a couple other antiviruses but no cigar. Can someone help me get this thing off my computer. I'd really appreciate the help.

Thank you for the timely responses. I have already run adwcleaner but it never picked up the virus. Malwarebytes and avast are both up to date and full system scanned about 2 days ago. Any more suggestions guys? Thanks :D

try wat has been suggested by Blackbird...
if doesnt work, try all the above in safe mode/safe mode with networking...
also if u have any suspect file...scan it here... https://www.virustotal.com/

if all above fails, then its better u do a clean installation of windows...

1. Try disabling startup programs in msconfig (Start search for msconfig). startup tab disable all except for the antivirus.. also in the Services tab, mark Hide all Microsoft Services and unmark unnecessary and/or unknown services. Restart the computer and run ADWCleaner again.

2. If normal mode is unsuccessfull try in Safe Mode. Press F8 right after the BIOS post and beep, and select Safe Mode from the startup options list.


3. Dowload Everything search engine and search in your hard disk for "url://zodiac-game.info/*", "zodiac-game/", and anything you see poppong up in the command window. Straight from Everything, delete related folders or files.... shredding them would be preferable.. so dowload File Shredder

4. Try a second or third web browser and if all get redirected, your DNS may be hijacked... see this page for solutions.
