You might want to look at this pertaining to ANCHORFREE.COM

Look all the way down! Tell me if you really want to keep this in your "trusted" MS Hosts file.
I want to keep it as it blocks the pop up and redirects to local host instead . Im 80% sure it was hotspot shield causing the pop up but id like to continue just to be sure.
I also just brought a Seagate 2TB backup plus and used Macrium Reflect to schedule a full HDD image every week and only keep the latest 3 images at any one time

After looking over the 'rougekiller logs'.... But, like I said, it's up to you as to how you want to proceed. You can either follow my instructions or keep your backup as a re-install. I would also caution you to 'wipe' and do a "clean" installation.

Please use this tool to get to the target issues...Zoek:
Download > Download zoek.exe version 5.0.0.0
Click: Download Zoek.exe version 5.0.0.0 (Do not click .zip or .rar)

When the download shows, and you get the option to save, please do so to the Desktop.
Right-click zoek.exe and select: Run as Administrator (Give it a few seconds to appear.)

If your AntiVirus warns you about the program, either allow Zoek to run, or temporarily disable your AV program.
Info on how to disable your security applications > How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs - Security Mini-Guides

Next, copy and then paste the entire script inside the code box below to the input field of Zoek:


Code:
createsrpoint; process; filesrcm; startupall; installedprogs;installer-list; uninstall-list;hijackthis; firefoxlook; chromelook; srinfo; DIR /S /A:L "%systemdrive%\*">>"%temp%\log.txt";b
Now...

Close any open windows.

Click the Run script button and wait. It takes a few minutes to run all the script.

When finished, the zoek-results.log is opened in Notepad.
If a reboot is needed the log is opened after the reboot.

The log is also found on the systemdrive, normally C:\

Please post the zoek-results.log in your reply.
