  1. Hi and Happy holidays to all,

    I have been battling some sort of virus for a couple days now.. essentially it takes over Firefox and starts opening new windows, interrupting typing and playing invisible commercials.

    I have no idea what sort of virus I have but I DO know where it came from. I have found one other person who had identical symptoms but apparently no luck with a solution ( see )

    Anyway this afternoon it occured to me to check the advice on this board. I've followed the 8-steps directions and below are the requested files.

    Your opinions and advice would be most appreciated.

    Thank you all in advance,
