Windows 8 issues with host

Recommended Posts

My windows 8 system, using firefox keeps opening web sites that I have not asked for, lots of pop ups.   I believe this is a host file issue, but can not find the correct host file to edit.   it is a 64 bit system.   Does your software address this issue and if not how do I remove this crap from my system?
