Hello i have currently experienced this problem and i don't know how to stop it. What happens is sometimes when i am on firefox a random popup comes up. It is not very often but it happens on websites like Google and websites i know that dont have popups. This problems also arose with the popups at the same time and that is sometimes i click a google link it redirects me to a random page. Some of these pages are free malware removal, shopping websites, and sometimes even yellow pages come up. I have experienced this for 2 days and have tried Super AntiSpyware and Malwarebytes with both saying i have no infections. I would appreciate any help as this is starting to irritate me.

Can you post the logs from the scans performed with Malwarebytes and Super Anti-Spyware?
