Hello, I have been trying to deal with an infection for the past week on my Windows 7 laptop. I believe that a virus was downloaded onto my computer while I was on the internet, I don't believe that I had installed anything that would contain a virus. I also have not made any system changes that would have caused the infection. The infection consists of a new tab opening to various advertising sites once every hour or so while I am using my internet browser, Firefox 4. I have attempted to clean my computer with full system scans of Avira and Ad-Aware, but the problem persists. My anti virus and anti malware programs are fully updated with the latest definitions. I am unsure of what to do next, any help would be greatly appreciated.
