I seem to have acquired some sort of malware that keeps opening pop-up pages for all sorts of advertising -- porn, weight loss, moneymaking schemes, etc.
When I watch this happen, the browser always starts out by accessing clkmon.com, and then opens the advertisement after a second or two.
I have searched Mcafee's threat database with no results I also looked in Google, and there I find adverts from several unknown companies that want to sell me a tool to get rid of the threat. They are usually in broken English and don't look very trustworthy.
I want to get this thing out of my computer. It causes problems with Chrome, Firefox, and MSIE, and usually artacks when I open a new tab or a new window.
Is anybody familiar with this threat, and can you tell me how to get rid of it?
Many thanks for quick reply.
