Hi

I often use firefox browser, and the screen shots below are examples of messages on the screen, always on the right side under "Advertisment". Are these viruses or not? AVG hasn't picked them up, but it did find 2 trojans:
prodsrvs.exe (filed in ...\system32)
instant access.exe (filed ..\program files)

Are the trojans related to the below??

I can't seem to find much on how to determine if they are viruses (your site didn't finf them).

Thanks :thumbsup:

atdmt.exe is an ad server that will attempt to install ads in most microsoft web sites and others. You have blocked access to it. There are several possible ways that it is blocked. If you have blocked Third Party cookies, use Adblock extension or Spyblaster. No Script extension could play a part in blocking, too.
Same goes for doubleclick.

With the Adblock extension in Firefox, you can right click on the ad and choose "block Iframe" and you want even see that message!
