DNS Keeper ads again

I do not have a antivirus tool in the computer and accidentally download the malware. This post (http://www.fastremovevirus.com/how-to-removeget-rid-of-ads-by-dns-keeper-in-easy-guides.html) from Google shows detailed introduction of the adware. But ad link appears on the website randomly. Do not find anything in profile folder. Do you have any idea?

Try Malwarebytes, Spybot and ADWCleaner, they are my go-to tools and are free.

+1 to what @lando242 wrote. All three of the tools he listed are good, reputable ones. However, be very cautious about downloading or using many of the 'tools' provided by so many of the typical Google-result websites, which may infect your system with worse problems than you already have. Stick with tools from sites with long, quality reputations. Malwarebytes is one, and specifically addresses this adware at: < https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/173010-removal-instructions-for-dns-keeper/ >
If you still can't get seem to get the adware off the system, you can try visiting the security experts at any of several reputable websites to help with free removal (DSLR, Malwarebytes, Wilders, 7-forums, etc). In some cases, they will have you download even more powerful tools and perhaps upload results files back to them for further analysis and action in getting a system clean. A lot depends on how deep an infection is embedded, and whether it's invited any 'friends' onto your system as well. Because DNS Keeper is actually an installed piece of software, usually arriving bundled along with some desired freeware that's been downloaded, that still may have happened.
Edited to add: there's a brand new scam going around involving counterfeit Malwarebytes websites run by fraudsters who copy Malwarebytes logos and such. Always be sure the domain name of any Malwarebytes website you access ends with .malwarebytes.org/ to avoid being scammed.

Hi,has your problem been solved? I also encountered DNS Keeper ads several days ago and finally removed those ads by changing my DNS settings. I followed the guide in this post (http://guides.uufix.com/how-to-uninstallremove-dns-keeper-from-your-pc-pop-up-ads-removal/) to change my DNS to automatic and it did the trick. I was not sure about those anti-malware programs recommended so I didn't download them.
DNS Keeper may have changed your default DNS settings. You can follow the steps below to repair it by yourself. (Take Windows 7 for example)
Click Start button, go to Control Panel and click the View network status and tasks link under Network and Internet category. (Note: The control panel screen is under View by: Category)
Then click on Local Area Connection.
In the pop-up Local Area Connection 2 Status window, you click on Properties button.
Click on Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4) then click Properties button.
Select the Obtain DNS server address automatically option and click on OK button.
