I have what I think is just an internet browsing virus, one tab keeps popping up called "wizzmaster" or something and another has set itself has the default search engine called trotux.
Can someone please tell me how to get rid of the viruses so I can go back to using google chrome etc normally!!!!

Click on this link to download : ADWCleaner Click on ONE of the Two green Download Now buttons and save it to your desktop. Do not click on any links in the top Advert.

See the screenshot where the proper download buttons are highlighted


NOTE: If using Internet Explorer and you get an alert that stops the program downloading click on Tools > Smartscreen Filter > Turn off Smartscreen Filter then click on OK in the box that opens. Then click on the link again.

Close your browser and double click on this icon on your desktop:



You will then see the screen below, click on the Scan button (as indicated), accept any prompts that appear and allow it to run, it may take several minutes to complete, when it is done, you will get a message saying "PENDING" , Ignore that & click on the Clean button, accept any prompts that appear and allow the system to reboot. You will then be presented with the report, Copy & Paste it into your next post.
Please note: the newer versions of Adwcleaner have a pretty colour display on some versions of windows and slightly different icons. The screenshots are from the older version but are basically the same
