I know there have been a LOT of people having problems lately with this new browser hijack that transfers people through sites such as pleasewaitclick.com and others. The most common fix I have seen is to run combofix, but what about people such as me who are running 64 bit systems that are not compatible with combofix?

I am currently running Windows 7 pro 64 bit edition and the latest version of Firefox.

Thanks for your help!
