This ad not bye this site?

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

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 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.

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