Can not get rid of Ad.reduxmedia.com
  

Hello, I have installed an Internet Explorer 6 on my windows XP computer. But i do not why this browser keeps on showing me pop ups multiple times. Actually it opens a multiple windows automatically. So i did a scan of my computer by using the norton anti virus and it has found Ad.reduxmedia.com on my computer. Is it happening because of this virus? If it is not then also my anti virus software is not able to remove Ad.reduxmedia.com out of my computer.

I have given you the link from which you can download the latest version of the Norton Anti Virus software which is amazing at securing the windows operating system.

You should always keep your firewall on as it is a feature provided by default in an every Windows Operating system. This feature will be checking for each and every bit of data that comes to your computer. so if it finds any malicious bit then you would be getting an informations about the same. Go to the Network And Security to change the settings of your windows firewall.

Some of the Ad.reduxmedia.com related threats are a.dat, alh.exe, msa.exe, sshnas21.dll, svchost.exe, alg.exe, kiksyo.bat, iexplore.exe, zeazem.exe, alf.exe, gnfybu.exe and all of this are browser hijackers which infects your browser and make it to run automatically redirect to the some malicious web page. And it changes the default home page of your browser.
