Well I'm just about at wits end here, I figured I would check with you all before I just gave up and reformated my whole computer, which I'm really loath to do.
About a month ago I downloaded and ran the install file for a program which I know realize was some type of adware, thinking it was a file that I actually wanted to install. Whoops! Ever since I have been tormented by continued pop-ups in my Firefox, which itself runs so slowly that I can't even open emails in Gmail anymore.
To date I have run and installed a variety of anti-malware and anti-virus software. While they have detected a few things, the problems continue to manifest themselves. I have installed and run AVG, Malwarebytes, Avast, Emisoft, Adwcleaner and today I tried TDSSKiller, all to no avail.
Any ideas on final steps before I just give up? Stupidly I don't have an up-to-date system restore point set up, so I have to reformat the whole thing if I can't find any good solutions, which sucks.
Thanks for any ideas!
