    Have this on my computer. It opens up new browser windows occasionally. I have scanned it with at least 10 antivirus/spyware programs but no good. Any one successfully removed it?

    Don't use the software on the page. Those are just ads. Read the post and it tells you what to do. The virus has set redirects in all of your browsers. try malware bytes or AVG Free

    Check your browser extensions, i found a sneaky bastard hiding there before, and it was in all my browser extensions. You could also try running msconfig from your start menu, check that nothing strange is getting loaded up there at startup. That will help get you closer to the solution, let us know how you go after those 2 actions.

    try your task manager next, and then shut down the processes, can you identify the file that way?

    google "hijackthis" ... program is great for seeing what automatically launches as you start your computer. You can typically find suspicious stuff there and disable it from auto launching

    You may have to run task manager as you do and end-task the suspicious .exe file immediately before you clear with hijackthis so the exe file doesn't replant itself after you clear it.

    I haven't got it yet. But, I think NOD32 will work better.
