I've decided to wait till the problem occurs again.
Because it seemed to be gone after Malwarebytes detected and deleted something.
Thanks anyway, guys.

Glad we could help. We'll always be here if you need us :-)

Happened again on a wikia, this time on laptop.
Same basebanner thing, it's definitely the ads, and not some sort of virus.

Can't install Adblock Plus either. Keeps saying there's a connection error with the Adblock website.

Hi tom.vanhee,

All signs of a persistent malware infection are there placed in front of you and going in denial does not cure it one byte, provide the demanded malware cleansing logs and let a qualified remover look into the matter. The prevaling stealthy infection doing the rounds now is this one, read: https://blog.malwarebytes.org/security-threat/2014/11/no-more-poweliks/
When it is Poweliks indeed I had a good hunch  ;D

When will I ever get rest.

You get rest and loads of relief from the verdict of a qualified remover, produce these malware removal logs and wait for the script to cleanse this infection else it will eat through all of your home network and what is hanging on to it...

If you decide to do a removal routine, this routine can also be transferred informally and anonymously through PMs with the qualified remover, no one there to snoop. We like to treat you predicament delicately and under complete discretion as we treat all our "victims" actually,

We are now on page two and nothing has been accomplished.
Help is freely offered but must be accepted by the person seeking help.
Begging isn't something that needs or should be done. IMHO
The same service offered here by qualified helpers is also available at some of the
better computer repair shops.
The difference is that the service is Free Here and can cost you a fortune at the shop.

Hint/tip you can change the default number of posts displayed per page - Bob and I have changed it to show 50 per page so we are only on page two - makes life a little easier when monitoring how a thread is going without having to flick pages too often.

Duh!  :-[ I have always been looking for "reply/page" and finally figured out "messages=reply".
Now I'm on page 2. Ta-Da!
