Hey!
All of a sudden, a banner from IE pops up everytime I start Firefox, or click on a link i msn, icq, mirc etc. I never even use IE Confused
I've tried to block it with Adblock, but of course it did'nt work... What can I do? I've allready tried to uninstall Firefox and installed it again, but it did'nt get any better. It even slows down Firefox when it's starting...

Can anyone help me, because I'm going crazy soon Rolling Eyes

From my opinion this are a spyware, adware related infection. Run Spybot - Search & Destroy they may fix the problem.. Razz

One permanent solution is block url in host file of Windows.

Read about that in: host file @ mvps.org
More info in: host file @ Wikipedia
One appz to manage host file: Bluetack's Hosts Manager

The url you want to block are firstadsolution.com this is a address with advertising... Smile
