Can any one please help me solve this strange problem, I've been trying for the last five months.


Here are the details : 


When I open any site, I sometimes see unknown images replacing the original images on the website. (Image URL is same).  They are not ads and can't be clicked. Just random images of people, cartoons etc.

When I refresh the page, the fake images are gone. It happens on all websites with images, 

It happens on both my PC and my Android (Probably because I connect & Transfer files alot)

I am using Opera & Firefox Browsers with no add-ons, extensions etc. and I regularly clean the temporary files using CCleaner utility.

I have Malwarebytes and Bitdefender Installed & I also installed a fresh copy of Windows 10 with Format C drive. I didn't find anything suspecious on startup. 

Here is a latest example, please check the replaced thumbnail for "Harvest Time" theme .

I shall be really thankful for help.

Doesn't feel like malware.  Have you tried resetting your router?  A DNS hijack in the router might do something like what you are seeing tho no idea why.  I assume these odd pictures are not taken from your PC?


Can you do  FRST logs per the forum instructions:

Thanks for reply. Yes these pictures were not taken from my PC. 


Actually the problem was solved after I installed a fresh copy of Win 7 with Format C: , I also changed my service provider.
