Adf.ly redirecting my Chrome browser

Unread postby rlee_la » January 15th, 2014, 6:01 am

Hi, I'm yet another person afflicted with the Adf.ly pop-up bot. (Is bot the right term?) I've read several conflicting accounts of how to remove Adf.ly from my computer, and that's why I'm posting now. Many thanks in advance for your help!

My PC runs Win 7 Home Premium, SP1, 64-bit.

In the last few days, the Adf.ly redirect pop-up has appeared on my browser about 5 times. I use Chrome, but I also have IE, Firebox, and Safari installed. I have not used these other browsers frequently enough to know if Adf.ly has infected them too.

I have run an AVG AntiVirus Free scan twice, and it has not caught Adf.ly. I've of course tried to going to Control Panel and looking for an Uninstall option, but I have not seen this option.

Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

By posting just a description of your problems it is likely that your topic will be passed by and you will not receive the help you're looking for.

We need to know what's running on your computer so we can give you appropriate instructions.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read, and which tells you what we need you to post so that we can help you.

This topic will now be closed.

If you still need help, please start a new thread with:

  • Addition.txt
  • Details of your problems.

If for any reason you can't run FRST, please let us know in your post.
