I ran a system restore back to factory install. Installed COMODO firewall and Avira Antivir before I connected to my wireless network.. Then I connected and have been installing windows updates. I have been getting random popups in FireFox with blank pages with www.google-analytics.com, search.googleanalytics.com, results.google-analytics.com in the address bar.. Even on my iphone when i browse i get these popups.. I also have Spybot SD and SpywareBlaster installed. Is this malware, or just a network thing? I can't see how it can be malware I have only been on three websites since the system restore? Thank you for your help.

If you have a router then reset it and reset your cable modem if you have one or DSL box. :thumbsup: See if that helps, does it happen on your iphone only when connected to wifi or does it happen on the cell network as well? :flowers:

I'd say that your browser is the problem...I've never seen any such popups, but I use IE. You might check your browser settings and add-ons.

@computerxpds On my iphone just when i'm on this particular wifi in my house. My friends computer has the same trouble with the popups when connected to my wifi. It happens ever so often it will go to a blank page with those addresses above and every so often it will redirect to another site.

@hamluis It happens on both firefox and IE so I'm no sure what to do. How can i get malware without even going to sites after a system restore. So weird

Thank you again..

If you read the links I posted...you will see that it is not malware.

Just wanted to let you guys know that it was in fact an infection. Not a catastrophic one just a bad IP registry hidden in my router. Once i reset the router and ran a script to kill the process in Combofix it was all taken care of.. Just thought you should know that they were due to a problem and not just a browser popup

Appreciate the feedback...I don't know if we would have gone in that direction, based on what we know :thumbsup:.

Happy computing :flowers:.
