How to remove popup.adv.net and mtn5.goole.ws - Final Solution

I usually have no problem dealing with trojans and malwares but this one proved to be the hardest one yet. Because it operates in ways we don't expect. Usually trojans operate within your PC but what if the exploit is hosted somewhere else on the web.

Woah! This took a week. Thanks to the people who commented on this blog. I could not figure out this solution without all of you who bounced your ideas here.

Anyway, lets get rid of it.

1. In the Windows menu go to Start>Run

2. Type cmd

3. This will fire up the command window

4. Type ipconfig /all

5. This will display the actual configuration of your LAN card. Pay particular attention to the DNS entry. In my PC I got three entries: 0.255.122.15 85.255.112.156 1.2.3.4 Two of these entries are not correctly formed while 85.255.112.156 is the DNS address of the exploiter. A proper DNS entry given by your ISP should look something like - 58.69.254.143

6. Type ipconfig /release

7. Then type ipconfig /renew

Blocking Adware with Firefox NoScript Add On

Last time we talked about blocking popups from popup.adv.net and wtn5.goole.ws. Thankfully Firefox has already solved this problem. Update your browser to 3.0.4 version to make it go away.

But in case another malware is irritating you. You can use the NoScript add on for Firefox.

To Install:
1. Go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox
2. Right now NoScript is the first add on you will find there.
3. Simply click on "Add to Firefox" button to install.
4. In case you did not find it, simply do a search for "NoScript".
5 . After installing it you will need to restart your browser.

What this Add on does is to strictly block Javascript, Flash, Java, and other plugin on all web sites. You will have to right click on the NoScript bar to find several options to unblock the site you are viewing. You can find more information from NoScript's official website.

However I don't recommend this solution because - you may have blocked the adware does not mean that …

There is something terrible happening on the web today and it has gotten more rampant this week. Unfortunately Microsoft, Mozilla, Google, Opera, Apple, and Adobe has no permanent solution for it at the moment.

If you visited several legitimate website and an ad from popup.adv.net and wtn5.goole.ws keeps popping up when you click on a link or image, then you have been a victim of "Clickjacking".

No anti-adware or malware program can remove this strain because it appears that it isn't actually in your computer. In fact, I have tried using a newly formatted computer and still this illegal advertisements keep popping up. So…
