I have searched the site/forum about topics involving this ad/problem/virus.
I tried doing what some posts said.
And I still have this Vimax Pills ad that appear on almost all the places for ads in all the sites I visit.
Even in the the ad part of Yahoo! Messenger, this ad shows.

I have SAS, and MBAM And I can't update both of them, something about firewall blocking them.
(I think it has something to do with that ad, should I post screen shots or something?)

I'll be hoping for a reply. Thanks. :thumbsup:

Hello try updating MBAm like this.

If you cannot use the Internet,you will need access to another computer that has a connection.
From there save mbam-setup.exe to a flash,usb,jump drive or CD. Now transfer it to the infected machine, then install and run the program.
If you cannot transfer to or install on the infected machine, try running the setup (installation) file directly from the flash drive or CD by double-clicking on mbam-setup.exe so it will install on the hard drive.

Manually Downloading Updates:
Manually download them from HERE and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.

@boopme
Thanks for the info. Had my friend download it for me then send it via YM.
I updated it, then performed a quick scan.
It removed 2 infected files, then restarted my PC.
Then I was able to update MBAM and SAS again, including Windows Update.

Thanks for the immediate reply.
I hope it will keep this 'virus ad' from coming back again. :thumbsup:
