So I have recently been getting pop ups Usually when surfing around the net and the popups either start talking at me telling me how "adfoc.us is a revolutionary way to make money on the internet" amongst many others.
I have used Adwcleaner and it did find things and remove them but i am still getting the pop ups on both browsers (mostly chrome though)
I use both Chrome and IE. running Windows 8.1,
I have run mal-ware and anti-virus scans but they detect nothing. The only program that has detected anything is adwcleaner.
Oddly enough the problem is also occurring on my other networked computers, one of them being a Windows Surface RT! How?
This is also happening on a laptop on the network too..
So what am I left with?
Anyone know of a scanner that might find this ad-ware and remove it or am i looking at a format.... I would really hate a format, took me an age to setup 8.1

Someone i know has just had his router DNS changed via an exploit and that was serving up loads of Adds as well as multiple malware links.
Some recent examples and some of the routers affected. Turn off Remote Admin on your router if you don`t use it and it`s turned on by default.
