In order to complete a lab report, I downloaded an equation creating software, which i have found included an ad blocking software, OBRONA Block Ads, which has in fact covered my browser with highlighted words with ads, endless popups, and redirects. My McAfee protection has not been able to do anything to help this at all.

 

Please could I get some help eradicating this from my laptop!

Hello andrewh12345, welcome to WhatTheTech's Malware Removal forum!
 
My username is LiquidTension, but you can call me Adam. I will be assisting you with your malware-related problems.
If you would allow me to call you by your first name I would prefer that. :)
 
======================================================
 
Please read through the points below to ensure this process moves as quickly and efficiently as possible.

  • Please ensure you read through my instructions thoroughly, and carry out each step in the order specified.
  • Please do not post logs using the CODEQUOTE or ATTACHMENT format. Logs should be posted directly in plain text. If you receive an error whilst posting, please break the log in half and use multiple posts.
  • Please do not run any tools or take any steps other than those I provide for you. Independent efforts may make matters worse, and will affect my ability in ascertaining the current situation and providing the best set of instructions for you.
  • Please backup important files before proceeding with my instructions. Malware removal can be unpredictable.  
  • If you come across any issues whilst following my instructions, please stop and inform me of the issue in as much detail as possible. Please do not hesitate to ask before proceeding.
  • Topics are locked if no response is made after 4 days. Please inform me if you require additional time to complete my instructions.
  • Ensure you are following this topic. Click etYzdbu.png at the top of the page. 
     

======================================================
 
If you're unable to download the file below, please do so on a clean computer, and transfer the file to the infected computer using a USB drive. 
 
STEP 1

  • Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (x32) or Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (x64) and save the file to your Desktop.
  • Note: Download and run the version compatible with your system (32 or 64-bit). Download both if you're unsure; only one will run.
  • Right-Click FRST.exe / FRST64.exe and select AVOiBNU.jpg Run as administrator to run the programme.
  • Click Yes to the disclaimer.
  • Ensure the Addition.txt box is checked.
  • Click the Scan button and let the programme run.
  • Upon completion, click OK, then OK on the Addition.txt pop up screen.
  • Two logs (FRST.txt & Addition.txt) will now be open on your Desktop. Copy the contents of both logs and paste in your next reply.

While waiting for your response, I've found a walkthrough on how to remove this software and it seems to have worked, at least for now. If the problem persists I will come back to the forum, but thank you anyway!
