Hi. For the past two months, I've failed in finding the culprit in this seemingly strange problem. Everytime I browse using Firefox, somehow, some thing is redirecting things that I click to spam pages, and it does it randomly. Sometimes I get lucky and it lands on the intended page, but most of the time, upon clicking a link, the address changes to the link and after a couple of seconds will redirect it somewhere.
Then, there are also times that the browser just automatically opens a new tab of a spam page.
I've tried scanning using Avira and AVG but can't seem to find anything wrong. I've restored the operating system (Windows XP) several times but nothing changed.
