In Mozialla firefox, I get redirected to advertising sites when doing a search, facebook login for the UK. I also get a pop-up that states my browser is unsafe and recommends that I download a Windows security update.

Thanks!
Dan

Hi -

Thanks for letting me know. MBAM is very good at what it does, and HijackThis still has it uses, but is simply not detailed enough for today's infections, which is why we ask for a more detailed set of logs using DDS and GMER rootkit scanner. If you'd like, I'd be glad to peruse those logs, as well as review the log from MBAM.

If not, let me know.
