Dear List:

      We are having Vista, browser Monzilla difficulties. We'd appreciate the communities help.


We updated the version but always receive nagging "shop websites" pop ups and "your media player is outdated, download a new program" browser openinigs. One clicks them off, and the browser goes to the requested page.


I have run every Security Essentials, scan  tool and spyware removal app recommended.

ie. stinger, antispyware, malwarebytes, cwshredder, rkill, unhide, tdskiller, spybot, adaware, ccleaner, micsecurity essentials.


Is the popup program embedded in monzilla. IE doesn't have this issue. Running "permissions mgr" in monzilla stops it but you need to click to let any site open, it asks permission each time.


Fresh versions of monzilla don't cure it.

Any help would be great , thanks

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
