    malware/ trojan attacking browsers

    Hi there, to cut a long story short , my sisters toshiba satellite was running very very slow . ;installed adware cleaner and malwarebytes and ran it .... it found many problems . I quarantined them and removed them but they came back ! The browsers have been taken over by or searching .com ? So now after a week of trying to remove this problem . Folowing all instructions on how to remove from each browser and their short cuts I began using my computer to download tools to try and fix the problem ....; in doing so I have managed to download something with bundled adware onto my toshiba qosmio and I now have problems opening any browser ! Ibhave adwcleaner installed which i have ran many times . This removes all the problems found but they return ? After 2 weeks now I downloaded the windows defender offline tool - onto disc . Ran it . It found a trojan and malware . Removed them . On restarting the problems have not gone away ! I cannot even turn windiws defender on now !!! Driving me crazy,,,, any help would be very appreciative ---- cheers ---Neil

    If you can open Task Manager...under Processes tab highlight any browser shown working and click on End Task.
    Close down this might be a high jacked webpage linked to your router.
    Disconnect Router......reconnect router then restart computer to see if it solves your problem.

    Sounds like a bootable virus/rootkit scanner would be your best bet at this point.
    You'll need access to a computer to download and create the media.

    You've got a rootkit going there, that's why they keep coming back.
    It's also possible to download Kyhi's rescue media and boot the systems from it, then run Malwarebytes Antimalware.
