Hello,

Just one question while I analyse your log turfguy.

Have you tried uninstalling Firefox, downloading it again from the Firefox site and reinstalling.

Just on the off chance that you got a corrupted update.

The link below takes you to mozilla where you can download Firefox. Be sure to uninstall your old version first though.

Hello turfguy,

Have had a look and can't see much. How did you get on re-installing Firefox?

Meantime your Java is out of date, older versions are vunerable to attack.

Please download JavaRa to your desktop and unzip it to its own folder
  • Run JavaRa.exe, pick the language of your choice and click Select. Then click Remove Older Versions.
  • Accept any prompts.
  • Open JavaRa.exe again and select Search For Updates.
  • Select Update Using Sun Java's Website then click Search and click on the Open Webpage button. Download and install the latest Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version for your computer.
Your Adobe Acrobat Reader is out of date. Older versions are vunerable to attack.

Please go to the link below to update.

http://www.adobe.com.../readstep2.html

Now

Please download Runscanner to your desktop and run it.
  • When the first page comes up select Beginner Mode
  • On the next page select Save a binary .Run file (Recommended) then click Start full scan at the top.
  • At this time Runscanner.exe may request access to the Internet through your firewall please allow it to do so, it will then run for two or three minutes.
  • On completion it will ask for a location to save the file and a name. It will do this for both the .run file and the log file
  • Call the .run file "Select a name" and save it to your desktop. You will see the .run file on your desktop. Upload that file here.

Hi,
thank you for replying. It has taken me a long time because I don't have broadband. I have not uninstalled Firefox yet because my son (freshman in engineering at michigan state u) says he has some important bookmarks in firefox and I don't know how to save them for him. I have completed everything else on your instruction list. I noticed yesterday that I am no longer getting the little Spybot popups reporting "malicious" sources like Tagasaurus and Adrevolver, so something is working. My runscanner .run file is attached. I look forward to your analysis and thanks again for what you're doing for us.

I think you will find that even if you uninstall Firefox your bookmarks will not be lost. The new installation should pick up the old ones.

However to make sure, you can go to History (up near the top) and open Show all History in the list that appears. Once open there should be a option at the top to Import and Backup. Click on that and there will show in the list an option to Export HTML. Click on that and save to a location of your choice. This will save your bookmarks. Please note I have used my version of Firefox to put together these instructions. My version is a beta version and you may find that in your version that the actions required are slightly different.

Meantime I am having a look at the .run file and will get back to you.

Hello turfguy,

In this post we will provide you with a .run file fix and run a Kaspersky on line scan. This scan takes a long time when you are on broadband so don't be surprised if it takes a very long time on dial up.

Download the attachment at the end of this post (this will be your runscanner file fixed by me)

  • Save it to your desktop then double click the runscanner icon this will run the program.
  • You will notice several entries in red and in blue.
  • Click the button at the top called Fix selected items
  • Accept the warning(s) and repeat until they are all gone.
  • Reboot your PC
Next

Kaspersky only works if you are using Internet Explorer.

Please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner.

Click on the Kaspersky Online Scanner button. A box will come up, click Accept, this will allow it to install an ActiveX component and download its latest anti-virus database. (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)

  • Once the files have been downloaded click on NEXT
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make that the following are selected:
    * Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
    Extended (if available otherwise Standard)
    * Scan Options:
    Scan Archives
    Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan:
    Select My Computer
  • This will program will start and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
    * Now click on the Save as Text button:
  • Save the file to your desktop.
Copy and paste that information in your next post.
