I have a malware opening random websites when I surf the web with the browser.
Can you advice a good any-malware/spyware to remove it?

Please let me know a method...
 
You're probably RATED. Do this:

1) Download MalwareBytes
2) Install and then DISCONNECT ur internet connection
3) Run MalwareBytes and scan ur PC
4) If you don't have Anti-Virus, download it, i recommend you to use Kaspersky
5) DONE

You should be safe now, make sure you never download any pirate games or cracks/keygens, etc... Most of them have RATs in it.
 
Only way to be safe is to format your drive and install a clean OS version
 
Use CCleaner also

And where did you get this genius bit of information from???

I've cleaned dozens of pc's for friends and family and they never have the issue return.

There are hundreds of different programs designed to eradicate spyware, malware, browser hijack, rootkits etc

Clean a pc thoroughly and you'll be fine.

Happened to me last week freaken annoying spyware. I've tried every antivirus but no luck. I had to install a clean Operating System.

Never install pirate games or cracks/keygens they've got all shorts of bad stuff in them.
 
Thank you all guys, I have tried all the antivirus you mentioned, if you have some other way to eliminate it please let me know...
it must be inside the registry keys...

I will go with the option first .. As MB is my first choice in Scenerios like this .

This was to harsh and other method could be implemented before going through final resort.
 
If you calculate the time spend installing and scanning your system you could've been finished installing a clean Operating System
 
1 - Best option will always be a clean operating system
2 - After installing the a clean OS, then I will use Anti-Maleware byte to be sure :)

Clean OS would only take 15 minutes, and you should do it from time to time :)
 
Clean OS may only take 15-20 minutes but what about backing up important files and documents, what about reinstalling all your programs, finding/retrieving license keys!

It all takes time and it may be a simple problem to solve so exhaust all other options first!!!

If you don't have a separate partition for system only, then you are in a great risk.

Important files and documents should already be in another partition. Reinstalling programs is the main idea of the whole process, getting new and clean files would take another 15 - 20 minutes. No idea about license keys, I install pre-active OEM versions :D

Anyway, executables is the main disadvantage of windows. If you think every virus is there to announce about itself, u are very wrong. Most of them are hidden and work quietly to log ur data, gather info, or just wait for new orders.

I have been in penetration testing and exploit development for so long. It's very rare to find a really clean pc, and after all these years, formatting the C:\ every now and then is a very reliable solution.

I have a separate partition for documents but sometimes in a hurry you don't move everything across.

It's reinstalling all the programs that can be the issue, I personally have dozens on my pc that I use, many of them require license keys so I then have to dig out my backup of those. Some of them (hint:adobe) take an eternity to install.

Maybe, I needed to elaborate more on now and then part. Installing new windows once a year is a good estimate. So, even it takes 3 hours to get everything up, it's still nothing if you do it once a year.

The OP problem is different from urz, he has a nasty maleware, and you don't get this type of maleware unless ur pc has no protection. So, god knows what he has hidden and he isn't aware of.

This is why a new install seems his best shot and totally deserves the time :)

I agree that prevention is better than cure but I still think that making a rash decision to do a full reinstall because you have a potentially curable virus is overkill.

But yes, a full wipe and clean OS occasionally will keep your pc nice and healthy.
 
Opera is a pretty safe and decent browser, you can consider about it

Why are you trying to ridicule me by saying 'genius information'? You realize there are dozens of big corporations infected daily and they A) pay ransom or B) they don't even know they are infected or C) you have experts like yourself who think they remove something by running an anti-virus. Yes you can scan with your shitty malware bytes and call yourself an expert but that's not how it works bud. Just because you don't get popups doesn't mean you got rid of the virus. I'm not saying that is always the case, but in most cases it is.
