Hello Experts,

I recently visited a site which triggered multiple advertisements from Toparcadehits.com... now, every time I opened a browser (firefox) I get advertisement from them... extra browser window, small pop up at the bottom right side of the browser... a pain...

I ran virus scan, no viruses.
I checked C:\Users\myuser\AppData\Local, I did see a Toparcadehits.com folder along with some .exe files.... I deleted them using sdelete...

yet, I still get them...

anything else I can do?

any suggestion would help...

Regards,

System:
Win7 machine
Firefox (latest)
also using NoScript add on for Firefox...
