Pop ups Help enclosed HiJack this log

  1. Okay, when i open my web browser I get popups in a new tab telling me to scan my pc because its infected. the Program is called AntispywareMaster and i know its a malware problem but i didnt download it. Each and every time i open it it takes me to the AntispywareMaster website and or some other websites like adultfriendfinder and to apply for a credit card.

    ****I did not download that program (AntispywareMaster) and i checked it with my virus scaner and nothing came up. I also googled AntispywareMaster and it showed how to uninstall it but i didn't install it in the first place so that doesn't work.

    rogue anti-spyware program that gets inside your machine with the help of a trojan or through browser security holes. AntiSpywareMaster gets inside your system without you being aware of it. Once AntiSpywareMaster is installed, it may provide you with threatening messages that your computer is in danger and so goad you to buy it’s full commercial version

    Somebody will have definition for it as its a pretty simple program - lets try MBAM first
