One of the more annoying pieces of spyware, the ad.xtendmedia.com spyware can be cleaned out with quickly with the antispyware software Malwarebytes.
However, the ad.xtendmedia.com software modifies the HOSTS file ( located in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc ) and add’s the following lines to the BOTTOM of the hosts file.
The HOSTS file was also 2kb in size – the original HOSTS file is only 1kb by default.
Once the above entries are removed from the HOSTS file, the ad.xtendmedia.com pop ups should disappear. Make sure to flush your browsing cache / temp folder to be on the safe side.
