    Computer is running Win10 and the latest version of Firefox. Sometimes, when clicking on links, it will try to redirect to another site. And sometimes a pop-up appears saying that the computer is infected and to call the 1-800# so u can give them you credit card info:mad:

    What's really interesting about this scam is that if u try run it thru a search engine to find out how to get rid of it, virtually all the results appear to be sites that are operated by the scammers themselves!

    Anyway, based on other posts, I ran Farbar. The Addition and FRST text files are attached.

    Anybody? I reviewed the logs, but nothing looked out of place to me.
