Since a few days ago pop ups are appearing in my computer (imac, mac os x version 10.6.8). I don't see which programs to run to attach logs here.
I use firefox, just updated to the latest version.
Pop ups appearing are just ads, a couple of pages or so open up every time I use firefox, not inmediately and they don't appear up front, I see them when I close whichever page I'm reading.
In the history they appear as
engine.4dsply.com/Redirect.eng?MediaSegmentId=1630&dcid=1_ctx_f71cf91b-b901-4fc6-96b0-8825d09ca697&vmId=9255f6a1-3a32-469e-82c4-07269cb22dcc&abr=false&timeZoneOffset=-300&dst=True&abr=false&res=1376x774
engine.4dsply.com/Redirect.eng?MediaSegmentId=3655&dcid=1_ctx_3d54fb43-b137-449f-b2c0-0202cc094307&vmId=d4bc8fa7-2e67-408d-a79a-d969d2e457f5&abr=false&timeZoneOffset=-300&dst=True&abr=false&res=1376x774
Could you please let me know how to remove this.
Thank you

I am afraid that you are going to need to go to a Mac (Apple) forum for help on this...  We only deal with PCs running Windows in this forum...

Here is an article on free Mac antivirus programs. I would note that one of the free programs, ClamXav, should be avoided. I'm not familiar with the Mac version, but the PC version has generally had one of the worst detection results of any AV program:
