Not your average popups

  1. I'm experiencing some particularly frustrating popups right now, and I could use some help in killing them. They're pop unders, but in addition to selling **** I don't want they occasionally have phishing lures in them.
    Now it gets a little more interesting. I don't use IE! I use the latest build of Mozilla Firefox. On top of that, I have run AdAware with the latest definitions 3 separate times now, and these determined little bastards still keep showing up.
    As soon as I post this, I'm going to run a full system virus scan to be safe, but I'm at a loss at this point as to what to do after that. Suggestions?

    I did notice earlier that when I ran Morpheus that I would get pop-ups occasionally, but I never got one without Morpheus running until now...I'm going to try what you suggested and get back with you
