Just to be clear I am NOT downloading any of these programs, the windows are popping up and I am closing them without downloading them. I am posting the screen shots as examples of what is popping up :)
I am going to run the ad cleaner now

Hi,

Has that provided any relief from the pop ups you're experiencing ?

Sorry I missed the email notification on this reply & was waiting to hear back. They had been getting so annoying popping up that I downloaded Chrome and was using that and they weren't affecting Chrome, so obviously it is a FF issue. I am going to switch back to FF and see if they are still happening. I will let you know in a day or two :)

Well that was pretty funny... I just opened up FF and on the first page I went to I clicked on a link and a tab popped open! So no it's still happening :(

Hi DawnsShadow,

We need to do another fix using OTL

  • Double click on the Posted Image to open the program. On Vista/Win7/Win8 right click select Run As Administrator to start the program. If prompted by UAC, please allow it.
  • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following

    :COMMANDS
    [CREATERESTOREPOINT]
    
    :OTL
    [2014/01/10 11:26:18 | 000,007,641 | ---- | M] () (No name found) -- C:\Users\Dawn\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\lvo7s835.default\extensions\{58d2a791-6199-482f-a9aa-9b725ec61362}.xpi
    
    :Files
    ipconfig /flushdns /c
    
    
    :Commands
    
    [emptytemp]
    
  • Make sure all other windows are closed.
  • Click the Run Fix button at the top
  • Let the program run uninterrupted. The computer should reboot when the scan is done. If not, please reboot the computer.
  • Post the log that is found in C:\_OTL\Moved Files in your next reply.
  • Open OTL again and click the Quick Scan button.


In your next reply post the

  • Otl fix log located here-->C:\_OTL\Moved Files
  • OTL. txt after quick scan

Let me know how things are.

Thanks
Joe
