Redirected Clicks

Hey, my computer has a REALLY annoying virus that redirects my clicks. I need to click on stuff obviously, so until I find the file I sort of need AdBlock to have a thing against Redirected Clicks to fake websites that install Malware and such. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one with this issue, so it would satisfy a lot of people if you could stop the redirected clicks, just a suggestion.

    Hi Guest,

    AdBlock isn't an anti-malware program, although it can act as a backup for your regular antivirus and anti-malware programs. I have some suggestions that may help.

    1. Install's Anti-Malware Free for Windows and run a full scan. (We're not affiliated with them. Their software just seems to catch malware that others miss.)
    2. Install the Web of Trust (WOT) extension for Chrome. (Again, we're not affilliated with them, but personally, I don't browse the web without it. It's the first extension I install, even before AdBlock.) WOT displays an icon next to links to indicate how safe that site is. If it's yellow, click with caution. If it's red, avoid at all costs.
    3. Be sure that the Malware Protection filter list is enabled in AdBlock's options.

    This article from Google Chrome Help on how to stop unwanted pop-ups or homepage changes may also be helpful.

    Please see the following Knowledge Base articles for general information about AdBlock and malware:
