  1. So frustrated with this crap malware, really quite annoying. It happened when adobe flash player asked me to update, i guess it was a fake version looked completely authentic so i didn't think anything of it until it was too late. I've been trying to figure out how to get rid of this for 2 weeks now and really need help. I have installed malwarebytes on my computer and did a system scan today it seems to have picked up a rootkit dropper or something, i'm guessing that's whats causing the redirect? Hopefully someone can help me get rid of this redirect junk for good. PLEASE.
