Doesn't know if anyone else has this problem, but when I open Firefox, sometimes, it directs me to some site, for me to buy something from EBAY(chinese)... or some virus scanner, it happens alot, and in the middle of when I'm doing something!!!... What is the problem?...

Most of the time it directs me to this: http://www.ad-w-a-r-...=1&rnd=17583.... I don't know what it is and if that's against the rules, but... someone help me...

Sounds like an infection. Follow the steps here:

If you still have problems by the time you get to Step 5, start a topic in the Malware Forum and get your computer checked out. If the problem persists after getting a clean bill of health from a malware expert, report back here.

Ok if you're confident with computers and this problem still happens, go onto run on the start menu, then type regedit.

Search in the registry for http://www.ad-w-a-r-e.com, and all files that have that can be deleted, if the folder looks very suspicious then delete that, but make sure it is suspicious before you delete it.

Even if you know your computers i would suggest not to mess around with the registry. I would defintally leave that to the experts. A lot of listings in the registry look weird but are legit, only use registry if you are a adavnced computer user.
