I need help removing the "media.fastclick.net" and "ad.doubleclick.net" spyware crap from my PC. A lot of the sites I go to (not all of them, about 40%...however, it's ALWAYS the same sites everytime), when I hit my browser's back button, the page doesn't move. I have to hit it 2 or 3 times before it actually takes me backwards. If I select the pulldown menu next to the back button, this is what I see:

As you can see, the "media.fastclick.net" and "ad.doubleclick.net" ads are clearly displayed.

I want to point out that no popups occur, nor does my page get redirected. Other than having to hit the back button multiple times, nothing else happens.

Over the past 24 hours I have run the following spyware programs on my computer & none of them have reported a single piece of spyware. But as you can see from the pictures above, somethings wrong.
  • Ad-Aware
  • Ewido (sorry, I forgot to keep the log)
  • Spybot Search & Destroy
  • Hitman Pro
(all the above programs are fully updated)

I also did a full virus scan of my computer as well. And as I mentioned before, not a single solitary piece of malicious software/files were found.

So, if my PC is Spyware & Virus free, what is causing the "media.fastclick.net" and "ad.doubleclick.net" URL's to show up and how can I fix it?



Note - it's not cookies or temp. internet files either. Cookies are set to "BLOCK" and my Temp. Internet Files clear every time I close the browser.

Hello,

There's actually nothing you can do about this though... It's not your computer, but the sites you visit. Some do have these cookies present (mediafastclick.net and ad.doubleclick.net)
You can't change anything about these sites.
What you *can do however, is blocking these cookies. A nice program is Cookiewall:

With this program you can decide what cookies to block and which ones to allow.

Thanks for the reply. I'm glad there's nothing wrong with my PC. However, I still have one question to ask please.

I visit these same sites @ work. I use the same web browser @ work too, and yet, I don't have the same problem. At work, the "ad.doubleclick" and the "media.fastclick" don't show up like they do in the pictures posted above. Furthermore, when I use Firefox (at home or at work) I don't have any problems. Do you know why that may be? Just asking.

Yes, that's because Firefox is another browser as Internet Explorer 7. It doesn't show that option in your menu on top.
Maybe at work, you are still having the Internet Explorer 6 version.

When I go to one of the sites you visit, for example http://www.themoviespoiler.com/, my firefox doesn't display these cookies in a menu either... But I know they are present. It also shows very clearly at the end of the page.
It says there: "Poster and photos provided by : Yahoo! movies
FastClick Ad Network"

Also, when I look in the source of that page, I see a lot of references to valueclick and Fastclick.

So, really don't worry about the fact that your computer is infected, because it isn't. I have the same here. :)
