Hello, I am new to this site, just joined about 30 minutes ago under the advice of a friend. I was on ebay earlier and I do not know if it was from their site but, on that site, amazon, and duluth trading I have been getting pop ups on the top and bottom parts of my browser. All the products that they show correspond to what I have just looked at. In the lower corners of the pop ups it says "brought by shopping deals", though I doubt it was the correct option, there was a settings option on it as well, and it had an uninstall option, I checked it out to see where it would lead me which was probably dumb, though I have Malware Bytes and it didn't detect anything so I feel like I am safe, but anyway, it redirected me to a site called Offers4U, http://www.offers4u.org/, and there are no uninstall options. I googled the name and found out that there have been a lot of people with the same issue. I went to malwaretips.com and it pretty much said to just clear out my extensions on google chrome (my browser), and if that didn't work to check my installed programs and remove it from the list or to scan with malware bytes and to try Adwcleaner if the others didn't work. I tried them all, nothing worked, I even have premium on Malware bytes. I am not entirely sure what the problem it but nothing I do seems to work and I am a bit worried as to if it can harm my computer. Sorry if this is not specific enough, and thanks in advance.

Hi! My name is zep516 and Welcome to Geekstogo!
I'll do the best I can to resolve your computer issue
Please make sure to carefully read any instruction that I give you. If you're not sure, or if something unexpected happens, don't continue Stop and ask! Never be afraid to ask questions! :)

Everything gets download to the desktop and tools are "Run as administrator."

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
  • Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.
  • Please copy and paste log back here.
  • The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST.exe/FRST64.exe). Please also paste that along with the FRST.txt into your reply.
