recently, I started having problems with my browser(s) being hijacked. I traced the problem to a program named findingdiscount.exe. The symptoms displayed were:
A browser would be randomly launched with a page that says
ALERT: This verificaion must be completed before 10/1/2015 to prevent possivble account suspension!
yourverification has not been fully completed. please select an option below.
set ads preference YES ads NO ads
if you select either option it takes you to a random website. My understanding is that this is somehow related to Google's targeted ads system. I got rid of it by deleting the file and searching the registry for all occurrences of it and deleting them. NORTON didn't find this malware. neither did Kaspersky KVRT.exe. Not sure how I picked it up but several post on the web indicate it might come from using Google search, i couldntverify the accuracy of that.
