What is adware?

Adware is a program that displays advertisements while people are browsing online. Advertisements appear in a web browser, pop-up windows, special toolbars or within the host program. Adware also can gather information about user’s habits and interests. Once it collects what it needs, it sends it out through a background Internet connection. Such behavior allows adware vendors to deliver targeted advertisements to the end user and collect general statistics. However, it may also be used for stealing people’s private data.

Adware is divided into parasitical and legitimate applications. Illegal advertising programs are very similar to spyware parasites and often have some of their functions. They can be installed without user's knowledge and start working every time a computer is rebooted. However, they are less dangerous than rogues because the most of such parasites are primarily intended to collect user’s personal information for marketing and advertising purposes. Unfortunately, you can never know what other purposes it can be used for.

:

•  Appearance of annoying pop-up ads
•  Appearance of banners and in-text ads

I think i got a solution. If you find media player 1.1 in your extensions, that is probably your malware, or something. That is the problem. What I did was I got to control panel and uninstalled it. It actually stopped this entire madness.

Phew, hope this helps you guys.

In control panel, its called Media player 1.1
Uninstall it from there and you are probably good to go.

For my situation, it highlighted several words in any random text and that opens a pop up.
When you open new tabs or change websites, new tabs open up.
Just by clicking on the window, a a pop up appears.
A trend you can see is that these pop ups have in their url
or web address rvzr-a-akamaihd or something close to that.
Their should find some repitition in the sites it opens up.

If this doesnt work you may be willing to try all the other suggested options on the internet. Good luck.

It took me awhile but I finally found it, I had the rvzr-a.akamaihd.net show up on the pop ups as well as ndo.coreopti.net but I could not find them on the uninstall listing. Started checking out each of the files listed on the uninstall. Did not look at the obvious (Microsoft, etc.) Finally checked one listed as wedownload Manager Pro. Found it on google and it is a bad actor. Uninstalled and back in business.

Wasted 3 hours and a lot of hair pulling but it felt good to beat these idiots without having to resort to expensive tools which I understand dont always find them.

Using Chrome. Got this Rvzr-a.akamaihd.net pop-up virus parasite a few days ago, while downloading a "free" map of Vancouver Sky train map. Deleted the Chrome extension - wedownload Manager Pro - this seems to have worked, no pop ups since. Tried MalwareByte first, did not work for me.

Its good to beat these ******** your choice of adjectives, just like blocking calls from telemarketers!!!

I noticed that one of the rvzr-a related pop-up windows was called "weDownloadManager". When I went into the Extensions folder in Foxfire I also did not see any of the offenders on the above list, but there was an extension called "we_something" (now that I deleted it I dont remember what the name was). I disabled and deleted that one and rebooted Foxfire and that seemed to work!! I am no longer assaulted by floating ad windows, pop-up windows asking me to click on "updatemenow.com", and hijacked links.

I do not know how the people who write these programs live with themselves.

1. go to the wrench at the top right if you use internet explorer and go to the thing that says "manage add ons" find and then go to extensions then go to whatever it was and find the file on the computer it was hiding in C:Program Files... and than just deleate the file for me it was called MediaPlayerPlus thanks!

Install Trusteer Rapport.If you have a bank account its free and it will work.Its what the banks use and is free as it saves them money on internet fraud claims.
I tried several programs before Trusteer Rapport and none of them worked for long but this kills it.
