    I am currently having an issue with my Macbook Air. While running firefox I began noticing surveys popping up when I visited popular websites, I also began noticing fishing type ads at the top of these websites as well.

    All that the ads say is "Ads By: Media Player."

    It appears this is some type of spyware program/trojan?

    Any ideas on how to remove it on a mac? I attempted to run macscan but it was not detected.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
