My browser is continuously opening on its own to a number of different ad pages. I've run various virus software and removed viruses, but nothing resolves this problem.

The following is at least one of the urls that continuously open:

h***://***.ad-w-a-r-e.com/cgi-bin/PopupV3?...Skip=1&rnd=5735

Thank you for any help or advice you may have to offer. I really appreciate your help!

Your problem is hard to pin-point so I'm going to advise the use of HiJackThis (HJT). Please read the Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting a HJT Log.

Side Notes/Advice:

1. Post your HJT log in the HJT Board *ONLY* not here or anywhere else!
2. DO NOT make multiple posts to your HJT log unless you are responding to a HJT Team member or designated helper.
3. DO NOT alter your computer (install things, delete things, etc.) after posting your HJT log unless advised by your helper.
4. BC's HJT Team is rather busy right now so it may take a few days for a member to respond to your HJT log; so, please be patient and enjoy life in the mean time! :thumbsup:
