I'm running Windows Vista Home Basic, SP2. My browser of choice is Firefox, currently at 3.6.13. I use a hard-wired, always on broadband connection.
Recently, Internet Explorer has started opening itself, usually displaying advertisement pages. Also, when clicking on links provided by a Google search (while using Firefox or IE), I'm redirected to yet more ad pages.
I've tried all the basic tools I'm aware of ---- Malwarebytes, AVG, Spybot S&D, and SuperAntiSpyware. All have been updated, and I've run them in safe mode. A few things have been caught (by Malwarebytes, Spybot, and SAS) and quarantined and/or removed, but this has had no effect on the problem.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
