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.
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: 188.8.131.52.
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.
