Some sort of virus

  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 http://www.bullguard.com/forum/10/Pop-ups-End-Process-problems-D_31922.html )

    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,

    Please note your original thread was not looked at for some time as the Title was incorrect (actually I can't remember what it was, but I do remember it was changed)
    Note The title must be short and descriptive, not general like please help etc
