    Yeah i saw this but theres nothing in there to delete. Nothing new . I redownloaded google chrome, that stopped all the unwanted sites being loaded. Say im not browsing any site, im not on google chrome and i still get unstopp.me trying to connect.
    Avg can not pinpoint where it is on my system.

    I would also try Malware Bytes, other than that I always create a Clonezilla image of my clean install of Win or Linux with all the drivers, updates and programs I use regularly, if anything happens I just reimage

    If the other programs don't work you can give Webroot a try.

    Sleeper backdoor app, will randomly go looking for the next payload to download.
    Some sit deeper than the OS itself, I'd fdisk or replace the disk before installing a new OS.
    Surf safer, download more carefully and do your random stuff in a VM.

    He means if you are doing something "risky" that might get your computer infected, do it in a virtual environment first

    Fresh install.

    I don't bother cleaning anything, it's a waste of time. Infected = shit happens and instant fresh install. Instead of spending hours reading and trying to clean up while most of the time you end up reinstalling/re-imaging anyway.

    Don't need to delete everything either - just nuke the whole thing by deleting the old partition and install Windows back there.
    On the bright side, this will give you a clean OS to use. One which surely isn't damaged by malicious software.
