DNS Unlocker has taken over my computer

By Rachel Flake

  1. My laptop has been plagued by a DNS Unlocker for the past couple months. Before it was manageable and didn't affect me too much, but now it's so bad that I can't click on anything without getting an ad or a new tab popping up and refusing to let me close it. All I know to do is uninstall a program and run Windows Defender[​IMG], but now DNS Unlocker isn't even showing up in the list of programs, nor does my computer even realize there is a problem. Any help would be much appreciated.
