    Hi, I'm getting IE popups opening when I'm using firefox, I've tried a
    slew of many of the most common virus/spyware/malware defense/cleansing
    mechanisms and ran each with updated lists, yet they still are
    happening, so far I've ran ad-aware, spybot S&D, AVG anti-virus, CW
    shredder, Spyware blaster, Hijack this and Bazooka Adware spyware
    blaster and have Mozilla's popup blocker enabled with no allowed sites
    yet they still seem to be sneaking in, I have a feeling there is some
    spyware sending information because the popups appear to be somewhat
    targeted to the information I might be reading about, I have yet to be
    able to reproduce the popups, i.e. if one opens when i go to a specific
    URL, going back to that URL does not cause a popup to re-appear, I'm
    trying to everything I possibly can but am running out of ideas and am
    holding out a clean install and/or system restore activities as a last
    resort, searched the web and the groups but wasn't able to come up with
    very much relevant information or anything I haven't already tried,
    would appreciate any original advice or solutions/work arounds if
    anyone has one, thanks.

    Next time, close out of FF and clear the History and Cache and go back to that
    same URL and see if the ad pops up again.

    Interesting, Ewido found 5 infected objects not found by any of the
    other apps, I wonder if any of these might have been causing the IE
    pop-ups??
