Did you mean: pops up on every webpage through firefox but not explorer.

New Contributor pops up on every webpage through firefox but not explorer.

Every time I go to a new web page a popup window comes up from I have popups blocked. When the popup comes up it says firefox prevented it from redirecting me to another website. This has been happening for about a week. I have run a virus virus. I tried explorer a few minutes ago...don't usually use it. No popups came up when I navigated with explorer. I am assuming it is connected with firefox somehow.

Install, update, and run these programs in this order. They are listed in order of efficacy.
(Not all programs detect the same Malware, so you may need to run them all to solve your problem.)
These programs are all free for personal use, but some have limited functionality in the "free mode" - but those are features you really don't need to find and remove the problem that you have.
Note: If your Malware infection is bad enough and you are mis-directed to URL's other than what is posted, you may have to use a different PC to download these programs and use a USB stick to transfer them to the afflicted PC.

If these don't find it or can't clear it, post in one of these forums for specialized malware removal help:

Re: pops up on every webpage through firefox but not explorer. popups are caused by a malicious adware which is supposed to display unwanted advertisements on infected computers, and thus the creator of this virus will make profit from adverts. you can remove popups by scanning your system with an anti-malware program, or delete ilitili components manually

Google redirect virus is challenging to get rid of due to its capability to hide deep inside the operating system as well as its potential to eliminate traces and footprints on how it got inside the computer. As of nowadays, not a single security application in the industry can guarantee 100% protection from this infection. This explains, why your pc got infected even having a safety software installed.

Some computer users know that Google redirect virus is just not a virus, but in fact a rootkit. Rootkit infections unlike other virus, spyware or trojan infections are really difficult to get rid of. In most cases, google redirect virus rootkit is seen related to Trojans which makes it a lot more deadly. In accordance with a 2011 report, Google redirect virus have currently infected 45,00,000 computers worldwide, out of which 1/3rd is from US.

Some symptoms that you are having this virus on your PC:

  • Browsers freeze
  • Pages not loading at all
  • Google/Bing/Yahoo searches redirected to malicious site/s
  • Some programs won’t respond
  • Internet connection brakes itself
  • Terrible adds popping on visited webpage/s

If you have these symptoms on your Computer, I suggest using safe and respected software program as the 1 I've provided below. The Google redirect virus removal tool deals with malware infections that lead to Google redirect virus symptoms and are so difficult to detect and fix.
