Toshiba laptop gone crazy RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a few issues making my laptop unstable which in turn is making me unstable hahahaha. I'm constantly being redirected to other crap and adds everywhere on anything. I have all the names of these malicious sites written down. I'll share a few and see what anyone can tell me about them and what to do. albumsuper.info, cdn.adk2.com, p.obmvod.obox.netdna-cdn.com, epicscanpronice.in, visitor-rewardsurvey.com,

    That's to start with but there are at least the same amount I haven't mentioned. I'm hoping someone is kind enough and patient enough with me to learn to do this fix myself. I wantbto learn and I want to be confident enough to do this stuff myself.

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    My first suggestion would be to run an online virus scanner, which may help pinpoint the issue. There's many to choose from, but here's the one I usually use first:


    If that doesn't solve your problems, I suggest posting your question over here (Participate -> Ask a Question) for further assistance:

    Virus and Malware forum on Microsoft Answers

    This forum is meant for feedback on the TechNet website/subscriptions, not product support.

    Good luck.

  • Unfortunately your post is off topic here, in the TechNet Site Feedback forum, because it is not Feedback about the TechNet Website or Subscription.  This is only one forum among the many that are on the TechNet Discussion Forums, and given your post, you likely chose the wrong forum.  This is a standard response I’ve written up in advance to help many people (thousands, really.) who post their question in this forum in error, but please don’t ignore it.  The links I share below I’ve collected to help you get right where you need to go with your issue.

    For technical issues with Microsoft products that you would run into as an end user of those products, one great source of info and help is http://answers.microsoft.com, which has sections for Windows, Hotmail, Office, IE, and other products. Office related forums are also here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/support/contact-us-FX103894077.aspx

    For Technical issues with Microsoft products that you might have as an IT professional (like technical installation issues, or other IT issues), you should head to the TechNet Discussion forums at http://social.technet.microsoft.com/forums/en-us, and search for your product name.

    For issues with products you might have as a Developer (like how to talk to APIs, what version of software do what, or other developer issues), you should head to the MSDN discussion forums at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-us, and search for your product or issue.

    If you’re asking a question particularly about one of the Microsoft Dynamics products, a great place to start is here: http://community.dynamics.com/

    If you really think your issue is related to the subscription or the TechNet Website, and I screwed up, I apologize!  Please repost your question to the discussion forum and include much more detail about your problem, that could include screenshots of the issue (do not include subscription information or product keys in your screenshots!), and/or links to the problem you’re seeing. 

    If you really had no idea where to post this question but you still posted it here, you still shouldn’t have because we have a forum just for you!  It’s called the Where is the forum for…? forum and it’s here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/whatforum/

    Moving to off topic.
