    Hello, I need some serious help...

    I am using wireless internet.
    For the past almost three months, every single day I connect to the internet, I get a popup from Kaspersky (the AV I have) that says: "Blocked an advertisement site or a URL that can be used by criminals to damage your computer or personal data". Sometimes it's more than one, it's becoming super annoying because it's starting to feel like it's stealing my internet speed almost as if it's installed somewhere but it just isn't anywhere on my computer. (I've been to Kaspersky's forum regarding this and found one question about it, and even they refused to answer it.)
     Kaspersky blocks it upon trying to redirect me, therefore stopping the installation onto my system, (if it's not hiding somewhere).
    This is confusing the heck out of me. I've done a Adwcleaner scan, Malwarebytes scan, (my AV scan), hitmanpro, etc; safemode and all, to find nothing.
    Some days I get one notifcation, some days I get up to three at once saying: "Blocked an advertisement site or a URL that can be used by criminals to damage your computer or personal data".
    Soon after my internet started to dip from 150 to speeds of 1mb down and not even 1 up - something is leeching my bandwidth.

    Any help on getting rid of this problem would be greatly appreciated :-\.

    Hello and welcome to Computer Hope Forum. My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer.

    1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
    2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
    3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
    4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.
    5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
    6. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
    7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

    If you can't access the internet with your infected computer you will have to download and transfer any programs to the computer you're using now and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD-RW or a USB storage device. I prefer a CD because a storage device can get infected. If you use a storage device hold the shift key down while inserting the USB storage device for about 10 secs. You will also have to transfer the logs you receive back to the good computer using the same method until we can get the computer back on-line.
    *************************************************************************
    Please download Farbar Service Scanner to the desktop and run it on the computer with the issue.
    Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

    Make sure FRST is run under administrator privileges.
    Make sure that the Whitelist section is checked.Otherwise, the log will be very long.
    You Security programs may prevent the tool from running. If this happens, disable the security program until the scan is completed.
    • Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.

    • Press "Scan".

    • It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
    • Please copy and paste the log to your reply.
    • The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST.exe/FRST64.exe). Please also paste that along with the FRST.txt into your reply.
    Intel(R) Core (TM) i3-3220 CPU 3.30 GHz 8.0 Gb RAM Windows 8.1 with a dual boot to Windows XP  Home with SP3, Comodo  with Windows Firewall & Windows Defender
