This ad not bye this site?

By sanwardak ·
Hi
I have a problem with unwanted ads show on almost any website I visit. It happen in Firefox I try internet explorer 8 it not happening there. I removed some tools bar extension from the add on, clear history, run malwarebytes which found about 26 malware coupon Dropdown something like that and some other, I run advance system registry cleaner and ccleaner, and upgrade Firefox to 16.1 version nothing seem to work. Can anyone recommend something, I know formatting the hard drive might fix this but I don't want to go through that much pain.

Thank you

I have fixed

Hi
Never mind I have fixed my issues for those of you have the same issues, I will recommend to upgrade to the latest version of Firefox and then you will see some add-on, remove the one which look not right one. I was ruing I think version 13.1 and it was not showing the extension that was causing problem, once i upgrade to 16.1 v then I could see coupon Dropdown extension that was making problem.

Consider using OpenDNS

by Mo16 In reply to This ad not bye this site ...

Consider using OpenDNS opendns(dot)com on your Router or PC for your DNS settings.

Create an account and setup / use their various filter categories. They have categories / filter settings for Malware/Botnet Protection and Phishing Protection just to name two of the many available.

Best of all IT'S FREE for the basic version, which will do for 99.99% of all home users.

I have been using OpenDNS for over 5 years on my home network and not had any problems with malware, virus botnets, etc.

Try ADWCLEANER

It's a result of installing crappy toolbars. I would recommend you to use ADWCLEANER. It's really effective.
