I got three popups saying a new version of Firefox was available so I went to and did an update. Why am I still getting messages to update? Here is the address of the popup

That's no an official Mozilla website. Ignore messages like that.

That didn't tell me anything I didn't already know. Thanks.

As you are running Firefox 31, you appear to be on the Beta update channel (Help > About).

You can find the full version of the current Firefox 30.0 release in all languages and for all Operating Systems here:

You can do a malware check with several malware scanning programs on the Windows computer. Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware. All these programs have free versions.

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.
