My laptop is apparently infected with the rvzr-a.akamaihd.net Pop-up Virus which results in my browser windows being swamped with multiple pop-ups. I have scanned with Norton360, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition, none of which even detects the virus let alone deals with it. Has anyone else experienced this virus, or can offer any advice?

I have this same problem and cannot find the ans. Norton ingnores the question SuperAntiVirus ignores the question and no hits in their forum and other services need extensive traces and diagnostic printouts. You would think a simple pop up virus would be fixed by Norton.

Had a rough time removing this virus manually. http://www.anvisoft.com/resources/how-to-remove-rv

Yes I agree Norton was no help - I thought Norton was supposed to prevent my computer from being infected with this type of malware.
Tried going to the Control Panel - Uninstall Programs (I have Windows 7) but could not find any program related to Akamaihd.

If you go here and sign up for the Protected malware board I will deal with it. You have to create the first post of the thread for the protection to see you are the thread creator so can reply to your own thread.
I will see if I can figure where it is steming from.

I've had this problem for a few months. Pop-ups including "akamaihd", "wizsurvey" and several others. I tried to remove the problem using Malwarebytes - no good. Tried Norton full scan - no good. Tried Norton Virus Removal tool - no good. Also tried other suggestions in this community board - no good.
I am using Firefox and Windows 7.
My son came home yesterday. In Firefox he clicked on tools, then add-ons' then he removed something that was in this list..
