    targetingadvertiser.com

    I picked up this annoying pain in the Browser.

    targetingadvertiser.com

    It effects all three of my Browsers. Chrome, FireFox and IE. I get crazy pop ups. My anti-virus (AVG) says there is nothing wrong. But I can't navigate or mouse anything in my browser without a pop that has to play some Youtube link.

    THANK YOU INTERNET!!!!!!

    Am looking for fix I can trust. I don't like clicking on downloads from links that say this is a safe program for removing this problem.

    Anyone have a safe link?

    Combofix is your friend...this should be a direct link to the download itself. Never download CBfix from anywhere other than BleepingComputer.com. This is a good start let us know if it doesn't take care of your issue. There are other things to do after this does it's thing if you want to finish the job off but this should get rid of 95-99% of the crap.

    Yosc mentioned this one in another thread that helped Humby out of a jam.

    Yeah adaware was the 'go to' malware cleaner back in the day but has become irrelevant in today's battle against malware.
    Glad CBfix got you all fixed up but I would go ahead and run that other cleaner I linked to as well just to get other junk that might have been missed. There really isn't a true all-in-one AV/Malware/junk cleaner. It takes a team of good programs to get it completely clean. Combofix is just the best at getting unusable computers, usable again, which is why I always recommend and use it first.

    I like that one. A better one about MacAfee " It couldn't find a booger on a white hankerchief!".
