    Hello, first of all, I'm Tkima1, I'm from Norway, I'm new to the forums, so bear with me if I'm on the wrong section for this following question.

    Lately, after I've formated my Mac, I've started to be spammed with a asking me if I've wanted to download a file called "afr.php", I use Firefox. It doesn't pop up ALL the time, but often.

    Does anyone know what this is? How I can stop it?

    Thanks for all answers :)

    Have you tried a Google search for "afr.php"? I suggest doing so as it will reveal the problem and solution.

    To Anglewatt:

    yes I have. It suggested cache removement, it's a spy-, malware and all sorts of things.. That is why I asked from help here...

    You should read further past the emptying cache suggestion on those pages as there were better solutions.

    If you ask for help in this forum, it's not wise to criticize those who genuinely offer help. Such an attitude will not get you the help you need. You haven't specified all the things you've tried, so there's no way for others to know. Show a little gratitude and you're likely to get more help.
