Yesterday I ran an .exe that was cleared by my antivirus and immediately after the exe installed adware on my PC, hijacked my browser, added random bookmarks to it and changed the homepage to some ****ty search provider. I removed most of the adware successfully, but it seems something remained and I'm having trouble tracking it down to remove it.
What happens is sometimes when I'm busy browsing I'll get random timeouts saying "Oops! Google Chrome could not find mybroadband.co.za." In the address bar the following url pops up, https://static.dreamsadnetwork.com/e...a/vb/forum.php.
I've tried searching for what this static.dreamsadnetwork is, but I can't find anything. I don't know if whatever the hell it is is maybe blocking certain google search results from showing up, because google searches on the subject takes a lot longer than normal. I've got no idea what this is doing or why it's doing it. Anyone perhaps know where I would go to look for what this is or how to remove it?
