Hey guys,

Thanks for taking the time to check this out for me.

Everytime I open mozilla i get an extra window pop up with ads and junk. i am a fairly cautious user and never open pop up ads and junk. seeing as it was related to the cookies i tried deleting the cookies and other internet history things but it didn't seem to help at all. i decided to try uninstall mozilla and everythign related to it and then run AVG to try and get the tricky bugger but again it did not work. Hopefully you guys can figure out what is wrong.

Thanks heaps in advance and i look forward to hearing from you.
