Refreshed FF, now how to delete new adware, win7

Posted

If anyone would like to help a novice - WIN7: I just refreshed FF after attempting to remove malware. (I did NOT perform"system restore") But now (of course), there's even more adware, including very common one that I've encountered previously ("Adpoint"?). (1) Is it possible that the refresh allowed new adware, or? (2) Can anyone point me in the right direction to again attempt to manually delete adware? (I have Malwarebytes, but clearly it has failed to prevent and/or eliminate various adware I'm plagued with) (This attempt to delete adware was a dismal failure because I've obviously allowed new adware; I've done others in the past with the same, or partially-successful results...) Thank you to any kind soul who can render constructive aid!

If you have an infection on your computer that Malwarebytes isn't removing, I'd suggest going to https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ and requesting help with the removal there.
