I've had a virus on my computer for awhile now, when I am using Firefox, it presents pop up ads in the form of videos that appear in the lower right hand corner of the browser. I also get browser redirects when I click on links. I have tried running Norton Anti-Virus and Malwarebytes. Neither of which have solved the problem.

This is what is known as Adware, annoying software which will basically gain money off of you by showing ads.

 

Norton is bad at taking out Adware, Malwarebytes I'm surprised it didn't detect it.

 

Anyway, download and scan your computer with: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

 

This should get rid of it for you.
