Maybe you have this malware(GreatArcadeHits ads) on your pc beacuse there is an exstension in your firefox named GreatArcadeHits.

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.

Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!

Ran malware scanner with nothing coming up. The "Flowplayer is a pop up and says "Flowplayer" in bold print. These are video ads and very annoying. And I still get pop up adds even though I have "do not allow pop up window" checked. Thanks Nellus91 for your help. Dave

You can also try a scan with this program:

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window.
