    Whilst I was searching for a DTP package I clicked on a site and it downloaded a load of malware and adware to my computer and blocked my access to the internet via Google or AOL. I ran AdwareCleaner which allowed me to get back on line. I was still getting loads of adware so I ran Malwarebytes (free) and FSecure which found nothing. Whenever I open Google now I am still constantly getting popups and redirects and cannot use Google properly.
    Some of the adware, listed below, I have pick out off Google history:
    slimcleaner clikuemx.com
    I wondered if these lurked somewhere in my hard drive and I might be able to manually delete them.

    This morning I got the followinging banner when I tried to log onto my email:
