Horrilbe invasive popups from nym1.ib.adnxs.com

Somehow this malware has invaded my machine and I keep getting popups and enhanced text esp on yahoo and facebook sites. It's from some company called App Nexus and the ads have nym1.ib.adnxs.com as the adress. Pop up blocker will not stop them. I've searched the internets for solutions but there are a lot of them out there. This appears to be a common scourge.

 

I use Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security 2012. Windows 7 64bit. Browser IE9

 

Here's the Hijack this log (OTL logs attached):

Re: Horrilbe invasive popups from nym1.ib.adnxs.com

[ Edited ]

What you have is not malware but adware or PUP, read this: http://deletemalware.blogspot.com/2013/04/how-to-remove-ib-adnxs-com-removal.html

 

What you have to do is remove adware apps that likely came bundled with recently installed freeware. Or you can simply scan your computer with AdwCleaner.

 

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

 

And on more thing, you can opt-out adnxs ads/tracking cookies here http://appnexus.com/platform-policy#choices

 

Cheers!

Re: Horrilbe invasive popups from nym1.ib.adnxs.com

didn't see anything there to opt out

but PCH sent me email stating that it came from here but I don't agree:

The ad you are seeing is coming from CPX (an advertising network) and is called a pop-under ad. Unfortunately CPX cannot control the popunders on a user by user basis. The only way to prevent this from occurring is to install a pop-up/pop-under blocker onto your browser. We apologize for any concern this may have caused

 

it is as you said from adnxs and think I cleared it but want to make sure.  if I would opt out doubt it would be trust worthy.
