I have my home page set to msn. When I open my browser there is an ad by dealpeak at the top of the page and there is an option to close the ad, which I do. then my homepage is normal. Sometimes I click on a link to read a news story and it get a whole different page that states something on my computer is out of date and wants me to click a link to update it. I don't, I just close the page. Or if I go to Amazon I get these sliding ads one from the side and one from the bottom they are also dealpeak. I have TFC on my computer and have used it recently but, let me try again right now.
trying to remove redirects [Solved]

well, 1st it was just chrome and as of this morning now it's on IE too
Posted 09 August 2014 - 11:07 AM
ok I ran the TFC and rebooted. It seems to have left IE but it's still in Chrome
Posted 09 August 2014 - 11:07 AM
For IE go to control panel > internet options
Select the Advanced tab and press Reset
OK out then retry both browsers

I tried a different shopping site to see if maybe it was just amazon but it does the same at target too. Yesterday I wanted to buy something off Amazon when I got to the check out, it asked me to re enter my credit card just for a safety measure. I have never had that issue before so I went to my tablet and signed onto target and went thru the process of purchasing this item. It went thru, never once asked me to re enter my credit card info. That's why I came to you. I know it's a virus

that seems to have fixed the issue I'm not getting the slide outs any longer

nope I think that took care of it. Should I run the AdwCleaner and TFC from time to time?

I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but, I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems
