I'm not sure if I should post this here, but I'll move it if necessary.

I'm finding z1.adserver.com in my Firefox history. When I click on it cp.x appears in the expanded history. Does this mean that my computer is infected with something?

Thanks in advance.

Oh, don't worry about that... It's just those lame pop-ups... clear your history, and run ad-aware every week or so... and clear the rest of your browser cache every once in a while ( With IE, Right Click> Properties> General Tab (default)> Delete Cookies...> OK> Delete Files...> Check off Delete all Offline Content> OK> Clear History> Yes> OK)
Get Ad-Aware from:
http://www.lavasoft.com/
Or the left nav bar, choose which version of Ad-Aware you want.. (SE Personal is good for your home)

if you feel the need to be absolutely sure that you are clean (which never hurts..) the malware guys will be more than happy to help you out


Please go to the malware forum in my signature and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
