I'm sure this has been discussed a million times before. I can't get microsoft updates but I can go to other sites and I am receiving occasional popups and re-directs. I have ran Adaware, Malware Bytes and Spybot S&D. All have found and removed items, but the problem still persists.

I am usually very careful and haven't had a virus in several years on this laptop. I downloaded a plugin from fileopen.com to be able to open a document that I purchased. So either it was in the document or in the plugin/site.

I would appreciate any help you can give me on this issue, I won't be able to do anything on the laptop til I get home tonight after work.

Thanks in advance!

i have a very similar problem right now. i have run AVG, ad-aware, spybot, they found a few things and i deleted/healed the issues.

but my problem persists. many websites just won't open for me, i have to refresh 5 times or more sometimes until the website actually opens. i use the latest version of firefox in vista. in the status bar at the bottom of firefox is sometimes see that it is trying to redirect to google-analytics.com??? could it somehow be a bug that does weird stuff with google? anyone know what it could be?
sometimes an extra window pops up and opens a blank page at the google-analytics.com page too. isn't that strange?

any thoughts on what else i could do to sweep my computer, or if someone know what this bug is, it would be much appreciated!
