    I know im not infected and i kinda know how to go about removing this nasty trojan thing, but every now and then i sem to get just one random pop up on certain sites. (not dangerous sites, but sites with a large amount of ads)

    Is there a way to block from displaying these ads that i find hard to get rid? In the end i have had to uplug my net connection just to shut firefox down and stop 'WINFIXER'.

    IMHO....if a user mentions Winfixer and popups they most definetly are infected :doubt:
