Hello,

I am running XP pro-32 bit, with a Dell GX270 3Ghz processor.

I keep getting repeated clusters of Avast pop-ups (whether or not Firefox or any browser is open), that tell me that Avast has blocked me from going to a malicious website. Here is a typical Avast Infection notification:

URL: http://www.zoosexshow.com/?x Process: file://C:\Program Files\Common Files\ComObjects\(Firefox) update.exe Infection: html:Iframe-inf

After a solid week of work doing scans and running fixes, deleting and re-installing programs - we have neither identified nor fixed this problem. Since the process path identifies (or implicates) the Firefox update.exe file as the source of the problem, do you Firefox folks have any familiarity with the source or fix for this problem?

Avast, Malwarebytes and Spybot scans find nothing. To see an array of specific specialized and sophisticated scan reports, and attempted fixes that have all failed to identify or fix this problem, below is a direct link to my (3 pg) thread on the bleepingcomputer.com forum (where my username is Daveinsk):

I am hoping that you may be familiar with this problem, and/or its fix. Please help if you can.
