    Random sites opening, spyware?

    My stupid computer has just started opening random sites, i'm using Firefox and every so often it opens a new tab and loads some sites, lots of different ones, searchme.com was one i remember. This has never happened before!!

    I scanned with ad-aware and Spybot S+D nothing came up, i'm running ZA and that scanned the spyware with no results, AVG also no reults, haven't installed any new software or anything like that.

    GRRRRRR!!!!!

    It certainly sounds like Spyware

    Grab yourself a copy of HiJackThis and create a log file.

    Post the log file and description of your problem over at [url]www.techmonkeys.co.uk[/url] and one of the monkeys will help you out.

    try this: threatfire.com/

    id also check Control panel - add remove programs to see if theres unusual program installed

    My friend had this problem and spybot and adaware did not work, but this did:
    download.com/Mal…ton
