Hi, everyone. I've had this adware for a few days now. Whenever I have an open window in Firefox, ads will pop up every 2 minutes or so. It gets really frustrating. I've run Ad-aware, Spybot S&D, TrendMicro House Call, and NOD32. Every time I run them, a trojan and a bunch of other malware is detected. It gets deleted, yet keeps coming back. It doesn't even take a reboot for it to come back. It just keeps happening and the scans keep showing and removing the malware, to no avail. So I'm going to post my logs, and hopefully someone here will know what to do. Thanks!
