adfarm mediaplex

11 posts in this topic

Every time I use my PC, eventually this pest shows up. I have just noticed that it has loaded twice.It is only a .gif file but it is irritating.

 

I understand it is not dangerous, but just a nuisance. I have used Spybot and Adaware to try to get rid of it to no avail.

 

I have Kaspersky Internet Security 6 and my OS is XP Media Center Edition.

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

I have used the programme you advised and ran a scan. Nothing detected. Adaware and Spybot did not detect it either. I also have Spywareblaster on my PC.

 

It is just an irritation and I do not think it is dangerous, but I would like to be rid of it!!!

 

Do you have any information on it?

Hi!

 

Have you tried blocking adfarm.mediaplex.com in your firewall? You could make a packet rule 'All protocols' - and set is as the remote address. Block and log, for example....

I don't remember the layout of the program, but there is an option to use SpyBot's 'black list' in your Hosts file... Through 'Immunize' I believe. Mediaplex MUST be in SpyBot's database...

You could have their cookie in your browser, by the way. Together with scripts enabled this could be enough to trigger such a recurring pop-up...

I know I have it, because it just appears. When I go to close my browser, there it is in a full page .gif

it's probably a popup ad or a redirect page you get while browsing someplace and kis blocks the banner. Can you remember what sites you visited when it popped up?

which browser are you using?

I cannot remember the site I was visiting, I am sorry. I use Firefox as my browser.

 

Does that help?
