I recently started getting a flood of ads on most websites that I frequent. Couldn't fing the culprit so I restored from a recent "image", and all was well,,,for a while. The ads came back so bad that some of the web pages(like weather radar maps) were covered to the point that the map could not be seen. I ran every Malware "rig" available to no avail. That included running CCcleaner with everything checked, reset firefox(which I recently accepted the update to the latest version) etc, etc.
Finally, I did a complete uninstall with Revo Uninstaller, and downloaded and installed IE 11. So far, so good.
Just thought I would give a heads up that might help someone else.  Thanks for the great website, I have gotten lots of ideas and info here, keep up the good work, it IS appreciated.

Edit: Topic moved from Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs to the more appropriate forum. Due to not needing assistance and being an informational topic. ~ Animal
