So recently I got this "virus" from downloading something. This virus keeps on spamming ads and underlining text on a web page to cause you to click a link that will pop-up a new tab. It usually links me to adsdelivery1.com. Monkeytize is what I'm seeing on the bottom of the page. Media Player is telling me to download it as well.
It only occurs on Google Chrome. It doesn't occur on Firefox but I still want to make sure it's gone off my computer in case it infects Firefox.
Here is an example of how it looks like:
I've tried to check what extensions and programs are causing this but they were uninstalled before I found out about this. I thought that if I uninstalled them, so would the ad virus pop-ups.
The directory of my file is
C:\Program Files (x86)\MSR\Privoxy
It also seems to automatically check the Google Chrome LAN setting for using a Proxy Server.
Here is also what I've tried doing so far:
Manually deleting it but it was locked. Checked the Add or Remove Programs but it wasn't listed there.
Deleting and restarting my computer using the following. Every time I deleted this, it would recreate the folder with all the files again, making it impossible to delete.
- MalwareBytes Anti-Malware. It restarted the computer thinking it was deleted but regenerated.
- LockHunter. It told me what was locking it and it was the program itself. However, I checked the Task Manager but there was nothing on that so it most likely wasn't me that was opening it.
- ADW Cleaner. Same as Malware Bytes
Command Line Delete.
I also tried using the Registry Editor and erased all the registries for Privoxy. It still didn't work.
I tried using the Perfect Uninstaller and ended the process from the "Other Processes" menu then deleted it. After restarting the computer it automatically recreated itself again.
I tried uninstalling it by clicking the Uninstall package file but it got rid of all but
Here is the result for Command line.

So how do I get rid of this indestructible program? Overall, it seems like whenever I have the chance to delete it, it keeps coming back.
