    Interesting... So I had done a browser restart from you mentioning it before and then ran the fix but I was still having similar issues (additional adds on google searches, download popups, etc.). I did the browser settings restart again and now I don't notice those issues.

    I will post again in a few days and let you know if anything happens.

    I tried that JRT, it works great. After having a full scan, the popups doesnt appear anymore. But I know that the browser hijackers is still hiding somewhere in my computer, because every time I restart my computer, it comes back to haunt me again! Please help..

    Add-ons recently affected 2 pc's within the family. Not sure about Win8, but Win7 System Tools has IE w/o add-ons. If that works w/o problem you need to disable add-ons and stop downloading garbage.

    Thanks. All good on this end. I ran scans w MBAM and AdwareCleaner. Disable browser add-ons.
