How do I prevent a speedanalysis.net page popup from appearing often when never called for?

Posted

Often, when I'm browsing with firefox a pop-up page appears: always from speedanalysis.net. I have never used this service nor do I want this service. I have ad-blocker installed. How do I prevent this annoying pop-up in the future?

Please update to version 19.0 and check your computer for malware and spyware.


Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.

You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.


Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

My current version of firefox is shown as 17.0.1 and update informs me that this is latest version so it seems v 19 is unavailable. I have malwarebytes installed and a run shows no malware.

Although kaspesky 2013 is installed on my computer but this popup doesn't stop from appearing. i tried to deal with this problem by installing a program called SUPER AD BLOCKER. IT often works but the windows of firefox keep shivering when the popup try to appear. what can i do?

please go to firefox > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc). also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there and run a full scan of your system with the security software that you have in place and different other tools like the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner.
