Hi!
I've been having some problems with firefox lately. Everytime I have firefox open to like yahoo or even this website, for some reason another firefox browser window pops up and has an advertisement or some website I didn't open. I've tried downloading anti-virus programs, and other programs to get rid of spyware and adware but they won`t fix the problem! i need major help to fix this problem and how to prevent it please! Can you also recommend some programs that will protect my computer so I don't go around downloading a whole bunch of programs? thanks! i also have my hijackthis log if it helps..
