Random Web Pages appear without warning

  Charlie Babbage 21:53 22 Jul 2013

In the last few weeks I keep getting random web pages appearing whilst I'm browsing a particular site.

The random pages typically promote betting sites or insisting that I update Windows Media Player. Is there anything I can do to stop these annoying pages appearing?

I run Windows 7 and use Mozilla Firefox as my browser of choice. I also have Norton 360 AV
