lately, i won't lie, I've been being a little careless about what i download, looking for cool free software. however, I've already uninstalled all of them. but now, on my internet, it will just start going to advertisement pages. and if the internet isn't up, it will pull itself up, at an advertisement page. I've scanned with Avira twice, and it hasn't found anything, but also recently the firewall on our wireless router, which i receive my signal from, has been turned off. Is it the firewall, or do i have a virus, that I'm just not catching... :)

since you think you got a virus please follow all of the steps in this section of the Malware Forum. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum. Should you post in that forum please do not respond to your own topic. Our Malware Staff look for topics to help out in that have no responses. The Malware Forum is very busy with many more requests for help than we have volunteer helpers, so please be patient. If you have not had a response to a topic after 3 days then please go to the Waiting Room and read the pinned topic for instructions.
