Depending on which browser I use, IE or Firefox keeps opening itself, displaying all kinds of adds.
Need some help in identifying and getting rid of the problem.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Wow, appreciate the quick response. I'll try all the suggestions now.
Thanks very much Buddy

I've followed all of the steps suggested and will now upload the 'Hijack This' log.
I suppose just wait and see for now.
