I m running Windows 7 Ultimate and using Firefox 24 browser. I have been having so many problems with pop ups that I can hardly use my computer. I have some knowledge of how to deal with them but nothing seems to work. I run regular anti virus scans and have recently run Super AntiSpyware, Lavasoft's Ad-Aware, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, and SpyBot but nothing fixes the problem. I keep getting "Visitor Surveys" one after another, "about blank" links in my address bar, unrequested links all over the screen and most annoying of all a pop up link right next to a legitimate link that I really do want to clink on. Whatever I do it won't let me click on the legitimate link.
Can anyone help me sort this out.
Many thanks
