Firefox redirection and new tab popups adware sites
Posted 25 November 2010 - 08:50 PM
Everytime I scan, it picks up the Adware Tracking Cookie, deletes but they keep coming back.
I did a full uninstall and new install of Mozilla Firefox, but it is still happening.
Please tell me whats the next step to do, thank you.

Try installing Emsisoft Anti-malware & Hitman Pro 3... both apps have a 30 day trial.
Emsisoft Anti-malware - http://www.emsisoft....tware/download/
Hitman Pro 3 - http://www.surfright.nl/en/hitmanpro
It might be a rootkit in the MBR, so if the 2 apps I mentioned above don't do the trick try RootkitBuster by TrendMicro :
I have used all of these as well as the apps that you mentioned above and I find them all to be quite useful & effective.
Install all of them in normal mode of Windows and update them all, then reboot into safe mode to run them.

I scanned Hitman and Emisoft both in safemode network and it deleted cookies and trojans but however I am still getting the random popup in my tabs, and most importantly, whenever I click a link in google search engine, it redirects me to an advertised site,
Also, this might help but when I scanned with Hitman, it said
I have a TDL3 (Alureon) rootkit.. but how can I remove that.

You just have to follow through after the scan finishes and click next to remove the items detected.
