    It looks more like a PuP (Potentially unwanted Program) or adware, Try Malwerbytes free Malwarebytes | Free Cyber Security & Anti-Malware Software and AdwCleaner Malwarebytes | AdwCleaner

    It's what Bleeping Computer classes as a Web Browser Redirect Virus

    There is a full manual removal method for this and all similar issues at the BC site here ...

    Adcleaner doesnt work also..
    Malwarebytes its just blocking .. everytimes its opening and blocking thats all .


    I tried another way these ads coming from iexplore.exe
    so i disabled iinternet explore 11 from Turn windows on or off features (try in this run command prompt optionalfeatures.exe)


    Ads gone from now onwards.


    If i enables internet explorer i dont know if its happens .. lets see soon.
    presently chrome is enough

    The reason that the solution I provided is complicated and long is because that is what is required - Simply using the simple options will not ensure full removal, It is almost certain that the infection includes a startup component ( Scheduled Task, is most likely, but a rootkit could also be involved, which are a specialist task to remove ), that will re-install the virus if it is removed.

    Please follow the full posted instructions.

    I would also suggest you download an copy of Autoruns from Microsoft's Sysinternals suite - Use this to check any Scheduled Tasks at startup that you do not recognise, (there is an option to check the entries online for validity), and disable them (uncheck the active box). You should also check the Known DLLs and Image Hijacks.

    If you are not confident at this level of system modification, please post at Bleeping Computer who's professionals will be able to help at no cost
