The ad takes over and I can't get rid of the horrible voice that talks about electronic cigarettes! How do I kill it?

When I go to a bookmarked web page your ad page comes up. If I click it off it continues in the background. It is usually about an electronic cigarette. It continues forever. The only way I can get rid of it is to set my volume to mute. It is really annoying!

Do a malware check with some malware scan programs.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database before doing a scan.
