If you want you could also run a scan with UVK:

From welcome screen choose "Scan & create log"

In the Select All/ None box choose "Select None" the manually tick the boxes shown here:

Choose a location to save the log and run the scan. It will take a few minutes at least.

When finished upload the results "Ultra Virus Killer log.txt"

Will be busy for a few hours. If you manage to get the UVK log uploaded it will be possible to remove that file using UVK - possibly more easily than using Farbar. Will check back.

Sorry just trying to reply to this was a nightmare as stupid windows kept popping up. I'd love to be locked in a room with one of the bastards who thinks these things are funny for half an hour!

Okay I downloaded UVK but when I tried to find that file Full Menager.exe it is no longer there. Bear in mind I have already run that script you sent me so it may have removed it. That being said as I just mentioned these stupid windows are still popping up all over the place.

I may not be able to respond again tonight as I have to hit the sack soon but I'll check back tomorrow.

Cheers. If you ran the script and deleted that stuff and still get pop ups then it can't have been the problem - although it needed removing anyway. You can forget UVK Scan Log for now as it would have been used to remove the same file.

However you could run UAK (Ultra Adware Killer) from within UVK to see if it finds anything:

Just scan but don't remove anything. If you see items that you know are safe listed in the results window - whitelist them by right clicking on them.

When finished:

Ultra Adware Killer> Menu> Open Logs Folder. Upload the results (text file)

Cheers.

Actually there are 4 text files so I've uploaded them all.

Did you allow removal of detected items to go ahead? I'm just asking because I see the following in your logs:

Code:
->Begin repair of the selected Firefox items...

	Successfully deleted Firefox Extension "Firefox Helper2" for Alex.
	Successfully deleted Firefox Extension "Strict Pop-up Blocker" for Alex.
	Successfully deleted Firefox Extension "HP Smart Web Printing" for Alex.
	Successfully deleted Firefox Extension "HP Smart Web Printing" for Alex.
	Successfully deleted Firefox Extension "Firefox Hello" for Alex.
	Successfully deleted Firefox Extension "Pocket" for Alex.
	Successfully deleted Firefox Extension "Multi-process staged rollout" for Alex.
	Successfully deleted Firefox Extension "FEBE" for Alex.
	Successfully deleted Firefox Extension "HP Smart Web Printing" for Alex.
	Successfully deleted Firefox Extension "HP Smart Web Printing" for Alex.
	Successfully deleted Firefox Extension "CouponsPlus" for Alex.
	Successfully deleted Firefox Extension "PriceLess" for Alex.
	Successfully deleted Firefox Extension "PriceLess" for Alex.
	Successfully deleted Firefox Extension "youtubeadblocker" for Alex.
	Successfully deleted Firefox Extension "PrriceLeeSs" for Alex.
Anyway - if those have been removed you'll need to reinstall the extensions that you still want to use. Like FEBE for example.

I would have suggested removal of the following:

Code:
Firefox Extension "CouponsPlus" for Alex.
Firefox Extension "PriceLess" for Alex.
Firefox Extension "PrriceLeeSs" for Alex.
If the problem remains try "Avast Browser Cleanup" - run from "System Repair" section of UVK.

Don't run the scans with a red line drawn through them in the screenshot!

When the Avast Browser Cleanup scan starts you can choose "Stop Monitoring" in UVK to speed things up.

You will be shown results (if any) and asked to confirm removal.

Let us know how it goes.

Sorry I may well have allowed the deletion to go ahead. I was pretty knackered by that time!

I'll run that Avast Browser Cleanup this afternoon as I have to go out so it can do it's stuff then. I'll let you know if it finds anything.

Avast

The result I got after running Avast Browser Cleanup was this; Your browsers appear to be free from add-ons that have a poor reputation. I clicked on the Firefox symbol and found two entries which both referred to HP printing which I no longer have as I use an Epson so I removed these. The Internet Explorer tab contains about a dozen listings all associated with Microsoft which I have left. There doesn't seem to be any way of copying this list to show you. As a matter of interest I have been using Facebook and other areas of the internet including eBay today and no windows have popped up so fingers crossed.

Regarding those pop up windows: I should ask if they appear randomly at any time - or do they only appear when browsing?

No need to answer really unless you see them again.

Another check you could to is to run UVK and view the running processes list and services list and check the VirusTotal detection rates shown in the window. Anything with less than 5 detections is probably a false positive detection and nothing to worry about. Anything with 5 or more detections probably needs checking.

They were appearing when I was in Facebook, eBay and just generally on the internet. Sometimes windows would just continiously keep opening as fast as I could close them and sometimes the whole screen just frooze up and I had to close it from Task Manager.

I'll hold off on anything else for now and see if they appear back. The last thing I ran last night was Hitman Pro and it found a trojan virus and a lot of trackers which it removed. Been clear since then.
