It seems to only be happening in Firefox. I'll open a website and will automatically get pop-up windows to other URL's. For example, I'll click on a link from say a Google search, I'll click on that link and some bogus website appears. I know I have a trojan, virus, mal-ware or something going on. I've scanned with two different AV's i.e. Avast and Panda Cloud as well as 2 different Malware scanners i.e. Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyWare. I'm also running a full system, including register clean with CCleaner. I can't seem to shake this issue, no matter what I do. As mentioned, I'm only seeing this in Firefox 3.16.15. I even installed Security Task Manager which shows the underlying programs running not just the service level ones...It did not detect anything. I'm at a loss here. Any suggestions as to why it's behaving this way?
