Hey all, I seem to have a small problem with my internet...

seems that everytime I type something in a search bar (google, yahoo, youtube, etc.), I'd always get a pop-up not too long after, and it's usually somewhat related to what i've searched.
I've ran malware bytes and ad-aware, but alas nothing got fixed. Can anybody please help? Anything would greatly be appreciated, thanks!

I'm having the same issues here. Like feelgood mentioned above, when we use our search tools, they set off pop-ups. It only happens when I have to search for something, regardless of what search engine I'm using. It's varying sites; Google, MSN, Yahoo, or AOL. :thumbsup:

When I don't search for anything after re-opening the internet, every things peachy. No pop-ups.

I use Firefox 3.0. I have AdBlocker Plus along with Firefox's regular pop-up blocker. I've purchased/downloaded several malware, virus, trojan, detector/delete tools such as: CCcleaner, SpyHunter, SuperAntispyware, AdAware, Spybot Search & Destroy, and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

None of these things are detecting anything else that I haven't already removed.

I even got myself a IPBlocker because I noticed that every pop-up ad has the same IP:

The IPBlocker is helping somewhat, like the pop-up won't completely load. However, others still get through and cause my internet to freeze followed by my entire computer.

If anyone could help us, we'd really appreciate it. :flowers:
