austrailianbrewing company
« on: December 08, 2013, 06:43:31 PM »
For the past few months I've noticed that a new tab or window will open by itself, the address always reads  static austrailianbrewing company (or something similar).  Avast has not flagged this even on deep or boot scans.  Internet searches suggest that it is malware, however most advice I've read suggests downloading other 'free' software to remove the malware.

I have two computers, one running windows 7, one running windows 8, both with firefox.  I've removed any applications I thought might be related or which were unknown but no luck in solving this problem 

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
