Every time i search something up on Google i always get 2 or more extra links with my search that pop up a second after ive searched it. sometimes i accidentally press on these links and it comes up with dodgy websites asking me to download some ****. how do i remove these links? Do i have a virus? Links also pop when i search for google images. Its hard to describe but heres what it looks like as an example

Hiya and welcome to Tech Support Guy

Sorry for the lateness in a reply, these forums can be very busy. Are you still having this problem? If so, can you do the following and we'll go from there:

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.

Thanks

eddie
