Hi, I have had a rough experience in the last 30 minutes manually removing adware that has made itself through my PC. I made a terrible mistake in having no anti-virus and because of that I got this nasty virus. It's called DiscountSmasher. It will crawl through your PC. I found it in my program files and by filtering it to 'Date Modified'. You will find at least 3 folders with weird names. REMOVE THEM. Some folders may need to be opened in order to delete as many files as possible.

After that disable the DiscountSmasher extension in your browser and get anti virus...

I had the same problem despite having antivirus software... I'm not sure how that happened. Thank you for this advice.
