Hey guys,

I've recently come across a rather (to me) unusual problem - sometimes when I click the links (or open anything HTML related, like Steam), I get redirected to weird sites (namely Reimage Repair and utrack), which I find reeeeally annoying.

I've tried running an antivirus (original Panda Pro 2016) and CCleaner to no avail.

Do you know how I may get rid of this issue without a clean OS install? Speaking of which, I'm on Win10 if that's relevant.

EDIT: Here are the links to the ads that get opened (Browser - http://prntscr.com/a84fzg ; Steam - http://prntscr.com/a84gnq)

Download MalwareBytes antimalware and comboFix both can be found on Bleeping computer.
Go into safe mode and run MB antimalware first then use ComboFix.

ComboFix doesn't work on Windows 10. I threw in the other remaining heavy duties on my last post. TDSSKiller for rookits. RKill for active running malwares. Then the other 3 to work effectively.
