i need help from those experts out there...

my internet browser is Mozilla Firefox v1.0.7 and is currently invaded by ads...
here's what happen. i was peacefully browsing through pcworld.co.nz, and suddenly the browser got smaller and the ad image+link appears on the browser, replacing the current URL i am in (ie. if i press back, i go back to the previous page, which in this case, pcworld.co.nz)

as far as i could remember, this problem started 2 days ago when i was scrolling through seri***.com to look for a crack and CD-key for my friend's software. several clicks later, i get this problem instead of the cd key i'm looking for.

although the ad isn't really a problem, its really bugging me when i'm playing game AND writing this topic. not only it happens occasionally when the browser is on, it also happen when the browser is OFF!!!

so once again i'm begging, is there any expert that can help me with this?

You may have picked up trojans, or spyware. Going to warez/crack sites.

I would also update FF. Its up to 1.5.0.4 now, or the V2 beta.

Get the file in my sig below and post the log here.

You've got worms and other things.

Turn system restore OFF.

Boot into safe mode run hijackthis again (unzip the file u downloaded first).

Tick these entries and tick fix checked.

I would also get this (http://www.simplysup.com/tremover/download.html) install it, update it click on scan, then select the 3rd-7th option under the utilities menu.

I would also get Stinger (http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/) and run it after.

And I suggest u stay away from warez/crack sites.

No harm in reinstalling your Firefox as well. :thumbs:

ok, thanks Speedy, u've been a great help. the virus threat had been eliminated

however, the ad problem is still occassionally keep on going. i just thought up a possible solution, which is creating a new account, and use that one until the next time i format my computer. i wonder if that would work?

anyway, if u had a solution to this ad problem, then thanks a bunch once again

Get Spybot (http://www.spybot.info/en/download/index.html)

Download the program and the detection updates.

Install it then the updates then scan.

Grandier

Take a snapshot of this ad. And paste it into a graphics program, if u have 1.

Post it here (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/upload/) and post the link it gives u back here.

Get this (http://www.ccleaner.com) as well and it'll get rid of the crap on your hdd.

Grandier
28-07-2006, 08:06 AM
well...finished uploading. here's the link

http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/1After.jpg

the spybot behind it completed the scanning and found no threat.

[edit] forgot to mention, sometimes when i'm browsing around, the ad pops up as an extra tab instead of new window.

Did you download and run Ccleaner to get rid of temp files?

If you are still getting ads, then try some more spyware removers,
such as Ad-awre, or Windows Defender, available here...
