    I usually use lavasoft to get rid of my adware, and it worked great until a couple weeks ago. I don't think it does anything for firefox. So what do you guys recommend to get rid of this stupid popup program thats on here!

    Zone Alarm firewall will block popups also, and give you added security.

    try using spybot destroyer. after cleaning with both utlilities and the problem persists, go and get hijack this!. run a scan and save the log. then go to castle cops and post your results and the mods or someone that is well informed well tell you whats good and whats bad.
