I have recently had Firefox open with warnings to update my media player, or that my hard drive is too full or other unwanted/unsolicited advertisements that are certainly blatantly untrue. I can close Firefox, but when I come back later, often one of these ads has opened the browser. On the address bar, it says something like "Sponsorship". I have tried dumping all cookies several times, and running my anti-virus (I use System Mechanic Professional) but these ads must be something else. The media player company is out of Spain, or so their website indicates.
I sure do need some help. This popup advertising makes me nervous for lots of reasons because it seems an attempt to hijack or to otherwise gain information personal information from my computer. Thanks!
