    I'm not very good at stuff like that, but the first question anyone's going to ask is, what system?

    I agree, Malwarebytes to get rid of the programs. you might have to do some extra deleting while your at it. If after you have done the deleting, you cannot access the internet, you may need to change your settings so it doesn't try looking for a proxy server.

    Be careful with ad block plus, it can sometimes affect the sites that you may visit regularly.
