Browser Problems

Okay so all my main browsers are having problems. Here they are.

Firefox: I am getting random pages open, I have error messages like randomexample%64%=-7%:.com is not valid and then my browser just turns off and resets.

Explorer: like Firefox I am getting the random pages poped up and pop ups that when clicked make more pages. I can still run it if iignore the popups.

Chrome: I have installed (regular) MANY times and i can't even get it to run -.-

I think it is a virus targeting my browsers and really need it fixed. Other then that my computer seems to be clen. (Comodo Security)

Pronz. Have your tried scanning with anything or rolling back to before the issues started happening?

I have done both. Idr for sure what the scan said but i couldnt find ne viruses...

As for reseting i have and it resolved it. But i kinda broke my screen (laptop) n using a monitor. Works, but cant c till powered up. And that makes system reseting kinda difficult....

I mean by going to windows button -> accessories -> system tools -> system restore. If you haven't turned it off and haven't added anything important to the pc in the mean time, it may have created a restore point to before the issue with the browser started happening. It doesn't always work especially with some decent malware, but it's worth the extra minute worth of time to find out.

Whoa! calm down there sally, lol.

You said:

Wasn't really to sure what you meant by reset. Possibly reformat, restore, or you rebooted the machine. That's why I went into more detail on what I meant. No need spending more time than necessary.

Have you tried a simple netstat test: netstat -ano? Use that command when no software should be connected to the Internet and any ESTABLISHED connection is a problem. Check the process ID of the software and remove it. It's not waterproof (far from it actually), but it sometimes works.
