Any ideas on how to manually remove ams1.ib.adnxs.com re-direct virus from certain websites in IE and Firefox ?

Kaspersky does not remove it even after IE and Firefox have been restored to original state.

Kaspersky Settings > Advanced settings (cardboard box icon) > Threats and exclusions > Detection types > Settings > enable Other > ok>ok,

and do a databases update > reboot, then do a scan.

 

After that, uninstall any recently installed junk.

 

After that, uninstall any and all junk toolbars > reboot.

 

Uninstall/disable any and all junk browser add-ons and extensions in all of your browsers.

 

Remove any and all junk search providers in all of your browsers.

 

Then if need be, change your home page, in all of your browsers.

 

If still no go, please see: Kaspersky Lab Forum > English User Forum > Virus-related issues > the first Important topic. There, you will find instructions for logs.

 

Please see the small print that is located at the bottom of this message.

Solved the problem

Scanned with Kaspersky and Malwarebytes

Confirmed that the registry was clear of references to ams1.ib.admxs

Identified the suspect Java plugin via Firefox Tools/Add-ons/Plugins ( No Delete Button option is available )

Obtain plugin file location by typing about:plugin into Firefox browser

Manually deleted infected Firefox Java Plugin via windows explorer by renaming infected plugin *.dll file to x*.dll

and deleting it via the Tools/Add-ons/Plugins Delete Button icon (which only becomes visible after renaming the dll file).

Close Firefox

Open Firefox and reinstall Java Plugin

 

:)
