I'm at my brother's house using his computer and realize it has that antivirus 2009 trojan. Mostly because I had the same thing at my house a few months ago. One thing different is that while I browse Firefox random blank windows keep popping up. The URL is like: link removed, etc, etc, or link removed, etc, etc. I went through all the virus removal steps and after running Malwarebytes in both normal and safe mode (same with Spybot and Ad-aware) all the infected and quarantined files were removed from the computer. Except there are still the pop-up windows, although they occur less frequently than they did before. I'm not sure how to go on with this, searching didn't yield much info so any help would be greatly appreciated.
