I have a hight-end computer running Windows 8.1. (I only got that OS because I thought Win 7 would be going away very soon.)
I've been trying to find out why my system won't completely shut down sometimes. Someone has been helping me with that. We uninstalled some antivirus software and installed "lighter" applications... and did other tweaks that made my system run somewhat faster. This is when the occasional redirect in Fire Fox started happening almost all the time, (mostly in YouTube, I think). The problem isn't serious right now because Fire Fox blocks the redirects but I don't know if this malware will cause more problems in the future. I'd like to get rid of it.
Can anyone help me with that?
I scanned with 360 Total Security and Malware Bytes and found nothing. I scanned Fire Fox separately as well as the entire system. I even reinstalled Spybot S&D and scanned the system... and found nothing.
As far as searching for an answer here on the Geeks To Go site, that's very difficult for me because of very poor eyesight and other brain problems.
Thanx in advance for any help with this.
