Hi everyone.

I dont know why but I have coupondropdown adware. It is not malicious, at least seemingly, however it is annoying. Some random text becomes clickable and will direct you to their site.

I think this is because of the latest Firefox update?

I went to the addons, but it is not there. Is it the 1click downloaded maybe?

I ran TDSS Killer, ASWMBR, Avast, MBAM, SuperSAS, ESET, and no result....

Check add/remove programs for anything related to coupons.
Check firefox add ons for the same.

Look for FBPhotoZoom, 1ClickDownloader OneClickDownload, and Yontoo in the same places as above.

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode to your desktop.
  • Make sure all programs are closed

Hmmm. I tried deleting the 1click downloader addon, and it seemed to solve it...

Perhaps that is the culprit? Even MBAM SUPERSAS and ESET and AVAST were not able to identify the problem...

Yeah, I think it is that 1 click downloader.

It wouldn't hurt to go ahead and run AdwCleaner as listed above. This program scans for and removes browser toolbars, adware, etc.
