|If I have anything in the search box in Firefox I get random search engines popping up with a single page result in a new tab. I typed in "Weekend break" into the search box at 09:20. I closed the results page and at 10:11 I got a random pop-up from "tosearchtoday.com". Looking at my Firefox history the pop-up starts at "http://darkprofits.com/search.php" then to "http://clicks.bluelinkmarketing.com" then to "http://hytr8lzz02.com/" and finally, to "http://tosearchtoday.com/". I have added all of these sites to the Ad-Blocker Plus plugin I have for Firefox, so I shall have to wait and see which search site pop-up next time.|
This has been happening for about a month now. I am running COMODO Internet Security for firewall and anti-virus and I make sure it is up-to-date. It runs a full and automatic check every night at 3AM. I have not downloaded anything without scanning it before I open the .zip or .rar and the only .exe files I open are installs or updates from trusted sites e.g. Adobe Flash and I do not download from any mirrors only direct from the site.
This doesn't seem to be causing any issues with my PC it's just annoying at the moment but I am afraid that there maybe something else lurking and I don't want it on my PC!
