I use Firefox (version 33.03 right now) as my main web browser. Recently, a number of regularly visited sites have started acting strange. I am also getting random pop ups telling me that I need to update my video player, or Java version (my version is current). I checked the "add ons" in the control menu, nothing looks out of place (2 nVidia 3D Vision plugin, one VLC Web plug in, one OpenH264 plug in from Cisco). I fired up IE 11 to see if it had the same issue. It did. When I opened up IE's control menu, and went to "manage add-ons", it showed the SecureWeb BHO from a company called Jelbrus LLC. I disabled it in IE 11, and it is running properly. I have run Windows Defender on a full scan. It says it found 1 item, which it said it deleted. I ran the freeware version of MalwareBytes Anti-Malware. It says it found 2 registry problems, and a PUP (Probably Unwanted Program). Asked it to quarantine the problems. Problem still exists with Firefox, ONLY. My questions are: a) why is it not showing up as an add-on or extension or service? and b) How do I get rid of this?
