hello,

i am in need of assistance with a browser hijacking i am experiencing.

when searching google through the google toolbar in firefox, a new firefox window appears with a URL already typed in. one of which was:

hxxp://www.candystand.com/play-random-game/youda-safari

and another:

hxxp://www.adcloudmedia.com/denyPage1.html

this does not happen every time i do a search. i'd say about 25% of the time.
after about 5 minutes, the new window closes itself.

i've run malwarebytes a few weeks back andit quarantined some files. however, the issue still persists. i ran it again and today it's found nothing this time.

if someone would be so gracious to help me out, please tell me what info to post which will be helpful in determining the issue and i will be happy to do so.

thank you kindly.
