YYY65 Ads and Non-Browser Flash Ads Continue to Plague My Computer

  1. OK, I'm getting extremely ticked off at my computer right now. I continue to get redirected to pages mostly with screwed up names, i.e. "onlineshopp-ing.com" etc. and ending in yyy65.html. I am using Mozilla Firefox.

    I am also getting ads that have nothing to do with the browser. They're Flash pop-up ads that continue to come up. I attached a screenshot of one of these ads because I suck at describing things.

    Anyways, I've used Ad-Aware, CCleaner, Spy Sweeper, HijackThis, Microsoft AntiSpyware... the list goes on. These two still persist. MS AntiSpyware seems to have gotten rid of some major spyware, and Ad-Aware too. While using these programs has sped my Internet service back to normal significantly, those two adware programs are giving me hell.

    Here's my HijackThis log:

    I have been redirected to these ad sites at least five times just while typing this post. I can barely even post on message boards anymore, and I-- make that six redirects now.

    God have mercy on the souls of the morons who created this crap. I don't know how these people can expect that these ads can make money (well, it also tried to get me to download that fake Antivirus program, WinFixer, nice try, I'm not that stupid) when they annoy the living crap out of people.

    I don't mean to be rude, but approximately how long does it usually take to get an answer. This stuff is driving me crazy.

    obvious you have adware.

    Boot into safe mode
    turn off system restore
    run ad-aware, spybot, and ewido
    run your anti-virus.
    report results

    I don't have an antivirus program. Anyways, I've been running Spy Sweeper for awhile now, and since it's been open, none of this has been happening. I think I should just keep it open.

    What ???? You don't have one! @#%^$#&%$^*&%^&*^&* get one! Running a computer without one is suicide!!!

    There are plenty of free ones like AVG.
