    Unhappy Not finding the Trojan...

    Hey, I've never posted on this site before and I'm not a computer whiz, but Spybot directed me here. I keep scanning my computer with Spybot (and Malwarebytes, and Webroot) and nothing seems to be finding what I suspect is a Trojan on my computer (even while in safe mode).

    Anyway, what happens is that I click on some page (like Amazon, ebay, news sites... legit sites) and a new tab opens in my browser (Firefox). The tab is either for a random product I don't want, or some congratulations that I've been "selected" to participate in a survey (usually claiming to be related to Amazon or ebay, etc.).

    I've used Firefox to block these pages (because I don't trust their content to be safe). But of course, then I just get a blank tab popping up, and a box from Firefox telling me that it just blocked a site.

    Anyway, like I said, I don't know much about computers, but again, this seems like a Trojan that none of my software is finding. Any way to fix this (a walkthrough anywhere)?

    Hello GreenDragonFly,

    What is the operating system and which version of Firefox do you have?

    Best regards.
