  1. I just downloaded the free version of Malwarebytes.

    I ran the program and it identified over 1,400 errors.

    I ran the fix program and received a message saying that the first 50 errors were fixed however if I wanted the balance fixed I would have to purchase the software.

    Has anyone experienced this before. I'm not sure why it stopped at 50.

    Help me if you can.

    Thank you.

    Jim

    Are you sure you downloaded Malwarebytes?

    I'll double check when I get home in a few hours. My IT guy at work asked the same question.

    I thought I did, but...............

    Broni, on Friday I checked and it does look like I downloaded something other than Malwarebytes, so I downloaded again and ran the program and it did fix all the errors it identified.

    I still have some issues with add ons, pop ups etc but it seems like they are mostly evident when I use Mozilla Firefox as my browser. When I log into Mozilla, on certain websites (newspapers) I get a lot of "Related sites" information popping up on the left vertical side of the page. I also get advertising popping up on the horizontal bottom of the page. I can clear them by clicking the "x" but it is an annoyance and when I change pages they pop up again. I've got a lot of "search engines' in my toolbar when I use Mozilla. When I use Internet Explorer I don't have these problems.

    Would it make sense for me to uninstall my Mozilla and the reinstall?
