    This started recently, in the past i had struggle with dnsunlocker that tries to hijack by browser.

    I posting this here since, i do not have this experience when browsing on other site like google,ebay,yahoo ecc

    I log in to my BHW account, any link i click on will end up redirecting me to third-party site(s) as shown on the snapshot below:

    Does these ads (redirection) has any thing to do with blackhat world or could this be a second hijacking attack from so-called dns unlocker?

    Thanks for your response.

    I had similar problem few day sago on a larger scale. I was being redirected to some spammy sites and Aliexpress after each click (on all sites). Nothing helped, no Malwarebytes no nothing. Also, if you find sites that offer some random malware removals for that particular malware DO NOT download, this is ransomware.
    I found a solution by manually resetting the router. Malware was spreading through the router to all devices in my home.

    Skyrocketseo i think you've made an important point here because i remember my first struggle when my system was hijacked by dnsunlocker. i downloaded some of the so-called browser hijacker removal,run cleaner but, at the end the problem remains unresolve. just a waste of time.

    I will try to solve this manual and possibly use ccleaner. Any success with hitman pro (trial version)?

    the trial version works just as the paid version in the first month, if you haven't used it before and your trial hasn't expired yet, it's fully functional

    i removed something similar to your issue with it from my sister's machine not too long ago, malwarebytes wasn't able to find it though

    ccleaner will only clear the cookies, tracking cookies, some adwares at best, these browser hijacking infections hide elsewhere and ccleaner won't be able to remove them

    I tried all those malware removal tools (Hitman pro, Malwarebytes, ccclenaer...everything) and nothing worked. Once I reseted my router to producer settings. Just check what is your router and how to do reset. It takes 5 seconds usually. Later you will need to set your router again though.

    Hitman pro is a great tool, Malware bytes is also very good, also you should run a full scan of your own AV software. Ccleaner is good - run the temp file cleaner and the registry cleaner component.

    Then reset your browser(s) completely - in IE that will remove plugins as well, if you use chrome then go in and check what extensions and loaded from settings.
