I get unwanted ad (video clip or other website) injecting to my broswer whenever I opened up a pre-defined website.   this is pretty annoy.   do you know if anyway I can setup the browser security setting (firefox or explore) to block them off?

Use adblock plus extension in your browsers.

Your system might be infected by some sort of adware/spyware which is generating the ads/movie when you watch some particular websites.

I would recommend to scan the system with the tools mentioned below and in the sequence they are mentioned and post the logs

Make sure you DO NOT REBOOT the system after running tools in point 1 & 2.

1. RogueKiller/TheKiller
2. MalwareBytes
3. TDSSKIller

I would also recommend you to go through the articles from Younghv and RPG for the links of the tools and for the future reference

Run MalwareBytes in Quick Mode and if that required reboot, then reboot the system and run tools mentioned in point 1 and 2 but this time run MalwareBytes in Full Systen Scan.

So in your next reply post the RogueKiller logs, MBAM logs and TDSSKIller Logs

Add the URL of the offending advertisement to your HOSTS file.
http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm

You can learn the URL by right clicking on the advertisement and then Properties.  The URL will be seen in the Address line.  (You need add only the part up to .com--the domain name of the advertisement--to the HOSTS file.)

adblock plus extension is the right solution.  I went to google to search and download the app. it works very well.

thank you

I also want to extend my thank to other suggested solution, but those are not the cases - for one reason, my computer already protected by the Nortan 360.    

happy holiday for everyone.
