i have recently been getting pop up advertising in the form of a small pop up box in the lower right hand corner of my screen.
They appear to coincide with the update to Firefox 3.6.4, i had never seen them before this.
The advertising is localised to my country and when there is nothing in the pop up it says "You are currently not targeted by Avuza Ad Network".The pop is intermittent.
I do not get the pop up in Internet Explorer or Chrome, only Firefox.
I believe it is a Flash ad.
If i open Task Manager and end 'plugin-container.exe' it will close the pop up immediately.This process is apparently a new feature in Firefox since 3.6.4
I have Disabled all Plugins in Firefox and the only Extension i have going is Java Console 6.0.20
I have done a search of my PC for any files related to Avuza and nothing is found, and i did a Regedit search for Avuza and nothing was found.
I have run Malwarebytes and Superantispyware.
I have considered trying to block certain aspects via the Host file, but would prefer for it not to be active on my machine at all.
I run Windows 7 64 bit and currently have Firefox 3.6.6 (although it started with 3.6.4 i believe).
If anyone has any knowledge on Avuza and how to remove its ability to exist on my machine, rather than just block it, i would be appreciative.
Worst case scenario i will uninstall Firefox.Some people with other 'plugin-container.exe' (read mozilla forums) have reverted back to 3.6.3 or earlier and many have had their issues resolved.
