  1. Hi all hopeing you can help, I am having a strange problem on my main PC, it can open web pages (well most of the time) but I can not submit any forms or posts on forums etc.I have run all virus and malware scans etc without finding more than tracking cookies.

    When it happens if I close firefox and try to reopen it I get the message saying firefox is already running please close it before starting a new copy. If you end the service in task manager then open firefox no pages will open. If I restart the PC all is fine for a period of time (this can vary) I am at a loss as what to try so have included a hijakthis log for you kind people to look at.

    Just to let you know my laptop works fine so its not the connection or router.

    The main PC is running XP Pro

    Suggest you re-post in the Windows forum instead of malware.
