Windows Updates opens both Firefox 2.0.4 & IE7

Q: Windows Updates opens both Firefox 2.0.4 & IE7

Good evening to all Last year I decided to use Firefoxe and say goodbye to IE after disabling everything to do with IE I soon realized than I could not get Windows Updates Windows 2.0.4 Firefox opens & IE7 both Updates nor could I access MSN Hotmail through MSN I went on to search the web and found useless tips and registry fixes that did not worked and eventually gave up and enabled IE to correct the problems I since upgraded to Firefox all ok MSN with the MSN Plus extension all ok there too but today I found the courage to upgrade to IE Now I m in trouble When I try to open my hotmails through MSN It does use Firefox but does not bring Windows Updates opens both Firefox 2.0.4 & IE7 the Hotmail logging page But the cherry is that when I click on Windows update in the security center it opens a blank page with IE and another Windows Updates opens both Firefox 2.0.4 & IE7 page open with Firefox telling me that I should upgrade IE go to the MS Download Center or better enable Automatic Updates I tried all these and others the only fix so far that works is to roll back to IE I think I should bow in shame and admit defeat before I do any more damage to my OS I should have known better not to mess with Regedit and Internet settings I would be really grateful if you could point me in the right direction in order to fix my mess Kind Regards Zatox nbsp

Preferred Solution: Windows Updates opens both Firefox 2.0.4 & IE7

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Go to the Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs, then remove Firefox and Mozilla entries, then reboot, and reinstall Firefox 2.0.0.4

A:Firefox text blurs, Windows updates won't update, firefox restarts my pc.etc

If it does come to reloading the system you can borrow a copy of Vista from friend, unfortunately MS does not supply any ISO's on Digital River.  One very important thing you must use the same version of Vista, also look over the computers box for Microsoft COA sticker with the serial number on it you must have that.  Get the info ahead of time, right my computer it will show your version. It is possible that you may not have to go through that if the machine has a recovery partition, you would need to look on the makers site.
 
Now all that being said I feel you do in fact have a bug and need some help from the guys up here!

Gringo... thanks for your help. I have posted the logs below. I may have found my issue. Something called Click Potato was mistakenly added to my system and since I removed it the IE pop ups have gone away. I think things are stable but it is worth a quick review.

I am running MS Outlook in Office XP Pro and the newest version of Firefox.

I didn't have any problems with this when I used Internet Explorer, but now that I'm using Firefox, every time I click on a link in an email, it opens up 2 Firefox windows???

It's not really that big of a problem, just more of a nuisance.

If anyone out there knows how to fix this, please let me know

Thanks in advance, kiregar

Hey Sorry I'm new to this website and think I am posting in the appropriate forum My problem is that Firefox keeps opening new windows It happens randomly some days it won't happen at all however literally five minutes ago firefox opened new windows by itself Also when I am on a webpage it sometimes just takes me back to the homepage without me doing anything Another thing that has started happening is that just before it opens new windows my constantly. Firefox opens new windows keyboard doesn't function properly - it doesn't pick up what I'm typing in The new windows always show my homepage - they're not advertising anything I thought it could have been a problem with firefox so I uninstalled it and used Internet Explorer instead however this also happened with that programme I have already re-installed Windows using Vista I have scanned my Firefox opens new windows constantly. computer many times using Norton however nothing comes up I have also used Malware Bytes which came up with something I fixed that however this keeps happening Please help Thanks Kim

A:Firefox opens new windows constantly.

Hi, Flavaflave, welcome to BC!

Ordinarily, I'd say that you had an infection, but you say you reinstalled Vista? Provided it was a complete format and reinstall, than no infection should persist. So, let's focus on the keyboard. You say that it stops functioning immediately before the new windows are opened, and that it happens in both Firefox and IE. I'd suggest trying a known good keyboard and wait to see whether the problem goes away. It sounds to me like the keyboard is sending erroneous keystrokes and/or the keyboard driver is going nutsy-cuckoo.

A:Please help - iGoogle on Firefox now opens multiple IE windows

Hi,I need some more info what this exactly installed, because you're dealing with the CiD sponsor and this one comes installed with other software.Please do not uninstall anything for the moment, otherwise logs won't make sense.Do next please..Please download DDS and save it to your desktop.Disable any script blocking protection Double click dds.scr to run the tool. When done, DDS.txt will open. Click Yes at the next prompt for Optional Scan. Save both reports to your desktop.---------------------------------------------------Copy and paste the contents of DDS.txt in your next reply. Do not copy and paste the contents of Attach.txt, but attach it to your reply instead.

Hello BC!
I hope I've provided you with the appropriate attachments, it took me a while to go through some of the other issues and figure out how to post this...
 
If I may describe my issue, I fire up my pc, then when my desktop appears I see a command window running for a couple of seconds. After that, my firefox starts up on its own loading the gamesharbor webpage.
Could be from a downloaded video game, but in truth I have no clue.
 
Thank you in advance for any help you could provide with this issue, and please inform me if my attachments are indeed wrong.

Hi there,my name is Marius and I will assist you with your malware related problems.Before we move on, please read the following points carefully.First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding.Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one.If you have any problems while following my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem.Do not run any other scans without instruction or add/remove software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me.Post all logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts.If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean.My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.Important: To help me reviewing your logs, please post them in code boxes. You can create them by clicking on the <>-symbol on top of the reply window.   Scan with Gmer rootkit scannerPlease download Gmer from here by clicking on the "Download EXE" Button.Double click on the randomly named GMER.exe. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please consent.If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO.In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ...
SectionsIAT/EATShow All ( should be unchecked by default )Leave everything else as it is.Close all other running programs as well as your Browser.Click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.Once done click on the Save.. button, and in the File name area, type in "ark.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop.Please post the content of the ark.txt here.**Caution**Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries

Firefox Opens two Windows when clicking external links

When clicking external links (from Emails), if Firefox is closed it will open two windows; One with the last web page visited and a second with the actual link. However, if Firefox is open, the external link will just open in a new tab as instructed. I've looked on the web, and other people have the same issue, but nobody has found a solution. Please help.

Windows Explorer has got quite an interesting behavior that I really don't understand; when I'm pasting in a file location (or folder location, for that matter) that contains a quotation mark at the very beginning, it launches Firefox, my default browser. Is there a reason for this, and can I disable it?

A:Firefox opens multiple windows/tabs after malware removal

 Get the free version of Malwarebytes, get it up to date, then boot to Safe Mode and do a full system scan with it and your antivirus.  This could run for a couple of hours.
 
 As for the multiple tabs, just get the ones you want, then press ALT-t and click Options -> Use current pages.
 
Good luck.

I am using Windows Mail with Win7. It was a struggle but I seem to have everything working except Firefox SendLink and Mailto--it opens Windows Mail (the default) but just the Inbox, not a compose message. Clicking on an email address within an email body works fine (it brings up a compose window). This may be a pure FF problem but I have tried FF 3.6.25, 8.0, and 9.01. I have another computer with winmail and win7 and FF3.6.25 that works fine, and I cannot find any significant differences in the Registry or in FF about:config. The Sendlink issue has been posted to Mozilla by others for some time but I do not see any answers.

Just in case anyone here knows a Windows setting I may have overlooked. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Windows Mail -- Firefox send link opens Inbox not Compose window

I've got similar problems with "mailto" links in Opera working with GMail... basically that's unsolvable... and quite honestly you're better protected with the eMail client in Windows Live Essentials than the older Vista Mail client...

Obviously in your case the link is pointing at the executable, not the new message command...

Now you don`t have to go through Internet Explorer to download Windows updates....have tried on three different computers and works well.....so if you were hanging on to IE just to get updates now there is NO need to! http://windowsupdate.62nds.com/

A:Windows updates through Firefox

By any chance, did you throw it up on a test box first to see exactly what it did (ie, doesn't open any backdoors, etc)?

By my twisted logic, part of the security issues with IE are the ActiveX components, and you need ActiveX to be able to download updates....so does the plug in just make it possible for Firefox to use ActiveX? Which then in turn makes it so ActiveX can be abused through Firefox...

Actually, I don't have a clue if it works that way at all... might be fun to look at though.

Hi everyone, I am sure it's not only my problem, and someone already asked for soluton. ...

After Windows 7 runs its updates I can not load Firefox at all. What I do is - a) system restore to the day prior to Windows updates and if this doesn't help b) uninstall and reinstall FF.

I also wonder: could Norton360 cause the problem. What happened today was Windows enforced its updates, then FF was loading extremely slow, and then stopped loading. Then I ran Live Update on Norton. No luck. I just reinstalled Firefox a few minutes ago. Opens in seconds. Now, I am OK until the next W. updates.

What is the solution? Your recommendation? It drives me nuts when FF is dead. It's not just slow, it's totally dead. And by the Murphy's Law I have a lot to do on my PC.

Thanks, guys. Appreciate any tip, advice in advance.
 

A:Firefox does not open after Windows updates

Could be a long shot, but perhaps you can try disabling any Firefox add-ons you're using, before updating Windows, to try and narrow down which (if any) could be causing the problem.

Maybe even as you said, an incompatibility or other issue with Norton 360 and Firefox that rears its ugly heading during/after updating Windows.

Hi,

Need some assistance here. Every time I try to do an update for Firefox plugins, ext, Java,
Adobe updates, they work to a point. In other words, I get to the dialog box, asking me
to Run, or cancel.

But when I click Run, nothing happens. This occurs whether the update is for Java, Adobe,

Do I have a virus, Malware, or is there something I need to update in my virus protection,
or Firewall.

Thoughts?

Updates for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (28/04/11)
(KB2515325)
(KB2522422)
(KB2492386)
(KB2488113)
(KB982018)

Mozilla Firefox (or Google Chrome) will not open after this update - all you see is a continuous blank white screen with 'connecting' at top and 'Looking up www.google.ie' at the bottom from Firefox

Can only get internet access through Internet Explorer (64-bit).
When you set a system restore back before these updates were added Firefox works perfectly

A:Have recent Windows Updates blocked Mozilla Firefox?

Internet Explorer (64-bit) is now the only web browser that works and it cannot be the default web browser i.e. you can't open a link from an e-mail etc.

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the Watch Topic Button, select Immediate Notification, and click on Proceed. This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer. NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process.

Hello there, *It is a good idea to print off these instructions - they will be needed later when internet access is not available. You may also like to save these instructions in word/notepad to the desktop where they can be easily found for the same reasons as above. It is important that you complete the following instructions in the correct order, and also that you don't miss anything out! * You are missing one important program on that computer: An antivirus. This is somewhat suicidal in today's digital world.You need to install an antivirus program as soon as you can and run a complete scan of the computer. AVG, Avira OR Avast are good FREE antivirus.Never install more than one antivirusscanner or firewall on your system! Several together can give problems and decrease the reliability of it seriously!Zonealarm, Agnitum Outpost Free OR Kerio are FREE firewalls. Understanding and using firewalls* Download KillBox from hereUnzip the folder to your desktop.Don't run it yet.* I see you have Viewpoint installed.Viewpoint Manager is considered as foistware instead of malware since it is installed without users approval but doesn't spy or do anything "bad". This will change from what we know in 2006 read this article: http://www.clickz.com/news/article.php/3561546I suggest you remove the program now. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following programs if present.ViewpointViewpoint ManagerViewpoint Media Player * Your Java is out of date and the older versions are being exploited by malware. It is the likely cause of your infection, so we need to get it patched up as soon as possible.Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on the Software icon > add/remove programs.Search in the list for all previous installed versions of Java. (J2SE Runtime Environment.... )

It should have next icon next to it:
Select it and click Remove.Then Download and install the newest version from here:http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp* Download LSPFix.exe to a convenient location. Do NOT run this program. This is only to be used if you lose Internet Access after removing NewDotNet.To Get rid of NewDotNet, go to:Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs and remove the following:New.Net Applications or New.Net Domains (anything that says New.Net)If it is not there, go here and follow Procedure 4: NewDotNet Removal Procedure 4. In the event that you lose Internet access after removing New.Net, please double-click LSPFix.exe that you downloaded earlier. You will see 2 panels. If there is any file listed in the "Remove" panel on the right-side, leave it as is and just click "Finish>>" then reboot your computer and you should now have access to the Internet. If nothing is listed under the "Remove Panel", do NOT do anything - just close the program.

I have Windows XP Pro, SP2 and use Firefox 2.0.0.3.

Now when Firefox opens it has two tabs . It comes up in an opened tab that has my home page in it. The other tab has just the Google search function in it. I'd like it to open like it used to, with only one tab open, with my home page in it. Is that possible, and if so how would I do it?

Thanks,

I am at the end of my ropes...

After some questionable P2P downloads, both my IE and Firefox have stopped working. I can open IE but it will not connect to the internet. Firefox crashed before it even opens. I have removed and reinstalled Firefox to no avail. I can use Chrome to browse the web (for some reason it works fine even though IE and Mozilla are not working).

Curiously, both IE and Firefox work fine if I start my computer in safe mode.

I do not want to lose the ability to use Firefox. Please help.

You have a HJT log posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

i was using firefox for my browser until it started opening by itself (out of the quicklaunch bar) and going to various poker, spyware, and other websites. i have used spybot and adware to try and fix the problem. Some of my friends seem to think i had spyware on my computer. A friend thought I may have a malware.

In addition, in IE and Firefox while the browser is opened will go to other sites like in the above paragraph. Do not know how to proceed from here. Am using Windows 2000.

If I leave firefox minimized, it will pop up and go to some various website.

Please let me how to proceed.

Whenever i play a video such as a trailer for example the video opens as normal as quicktime player launches (flip4mac plugin)...however, whenever i click the firefox tab the video opens up once again...i have to click the "back" button in firefox so the video does not open again...if i simply close the tab the player will pop up again with the video...even if i scroll up or down the video will automatically open up within quicktime...i dont know if i have explained this clearly but its just a bit annoying...i do not experience the same problem w/in safari so im guessing it has something to do with firefox....also as i mentioned above i have the flip4mac plugin for mac...thanks to anyone that can help.

I am not 100% sure if this is malware related. I removed over 200 malware from this guy's computer using malwarebytes and I also checked it with TDS Killer and found nothing. However when I click on IE (version 8), it acts like it is going to open for a split second but it doesn't. I don't even see it pop in on the task manager processes. I have had this to happen before but with the other computers I wouldn't be able to open any browser. SO, I installed Firefox and it has no problem opening. I was going to uninstall IE but I cannot locate where to do such a thing in Vista. Any thoughts?

Greetings,

I am having a bizarre issue. When I use Internet Explorer 7, if I use the "Ctrl L" command to type in the url of a website I wish to view, IE7 launches a blank IE7 window, which then launches the URL I requested into a new Firefox window. If I happen to have Firefox open, it will launch the new URL into a new Firefox tab.

I have both IE7 & Firefox 2 installed on my PC, running windows XP. I have Firefox designated as the 'default' browser. Just to experiment, I selected IE 7 as my default browser. This made the problem worse. Multiple windows would start launching upon requesting a new URL and finally IE7 would freeze and crash.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

A:Firefox opens unknown tabs

Hi there,my name is Marius and I will assist you with your malware related problems.Before we move on, please read the following points carefully. First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding. Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one. If you have any problems while following my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem. Do not run any other scans without instruction or add/remove software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me. Post all logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts. If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed. Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean. My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.    Multiple Antivirus Programs installed!I do not recommend that you have more than one anti-virus product installed and running on your computer at a time.The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, then those products which do not encrypt the virus strings within them can cause other anti-virus products to cause "false alarms". It can also lead to a clash as both products fight for access to files which are opened again this is the resident/automatic protection. In general terms, the two programs may conflict and cause:1) False Alarms: When the anti virus software tells you that your PC has a virus when it actually doesn't.2) System Performance Problems: Your system may lock up due to both products attempting to access the same file at the same time.Therefore please go to add/remove in the control panel and remove either avast!, Norton or Lavasoft.    Going over your logs I noticed that you have BitTorrent installed.Avoid gaming sites, pirated software, cracking tools, keygens, and peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing programs.They are a security risk which can make your computer susceptible to a wide variety of malware infections, remote attacks, exposure of personal information, and identity theft. Many malicious worms and Trojans spread across P2P file sharing networks, gaming and underground sites.Users visiting such pages may see innocuous-looking banner ads containing code which can trigger pop-up ads and malicious Flash ads that install viruses, Trojans and spyware. Ads are a target for hackers because they offer a stealthy way to distribute malware to a wide range of Internet users.The best way to reduce the risk of infection is to avoid these types of web sites and not use any P2P applications.It is pretty much certain that if you continue to use P2P programs, you will get infected again.I would recommend that you uninstall BitTorrent, however that choice is up to you. If you choose to remove these programs, you can do so via Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs.If you wish to keep it, please do not use it until your computer is cleaned.    Scan with TDSS-KillerPlease read and follow these instructions carefully. We do not want it to fix anything yet (if found), we need to see a report first.Download TDSSKiller.zip and extract to your desktopExecute TDSSKiller.exe by doubleclicking on it.
Press Start Scan
If Malicious objects are found, do NOT select Copy to quarantine. Change the action to Skip, and save the log.
Once complete, a log will be produced at the root drive which is typically C:\ ,for example, C:\TDSSKiller.<version_date_time>log.txtPlease post the contents of that log in your next reply.

my left ctrl key somehow was mapped to open web browser. ive got both ie7 and firefox. itll open whichever is default. i opend the firefox icon properties and the dialogue box dosent show any shortcuts (NONE) this started happening right after i installed some "security" updates from windows. there were a **** ton of them. i tried to go online to get a new driver for the keyboard but apparently micro inovations kb400i was made specifically for windows xp and no driver was made. instead it is supposed to use a windows compatible driver. anybody know if a windows update could have changed the mapping? whats weird also is if i push the ctrl key and hold it i can still use copy past search find history etc

Ever since about Sept. 2008, an approx. :30 piece of music plays whenever Firefox starts. I've looked through all my startup folders - to no avail.

I believe it might have been included in a website at one time, but nothing I currently open contains it and clearing my cache doesn't seem to help.

Anyone have any ideas on how to eliminate it - it truly bugs me - if I attempt to play my own music when starting Firefox, the two overlap.

Please help!

Thanks

I have an html page which will open with IE7 but won't with Firefox version3 - the page never loads. Can anyone tell me how to get Firefox to open the page ?

A:HTML page opens with IE want use Firefox

Since posting the query I have found that if the page is loaded in OpenOfficeorg writer and then saved it can be opened with Firefox. The html is shown then whether IE 7 or Firefox is used. The font size also is changed by saving from OpenOfficeorg writer (whether Firefox or IE7 is used to view). I would like to understand what happens and I would still like to know if the page can be viewed in Firefox without the loading into OpenOfficeorg writerand saving

OK, when I boot my EEE PC, FF decides to open and direct me to a website called NewsPedia.com. Not sure why.

I had a trojan and also had the autochk.dll problem but used eTrust Pest Patrol to remove them and they no longer come up in the scan. I quarantined them and deleted them.

I've run HijackThis and haven't seen anything in the log that looks like a virus or malware or anything such as that. Can anyone please help me???

A:Firefox opens wrong site

Hi annie2007,

Welcome to TSG!

From what you mention, the question is one of to what software does the Internet shortcuts on your desktop apply? (Just a guess - IE).

Assuming that desktop shortcuts apply to 3rd party software like Firefox may not be a valid assumption.

I would Google for: Firefox +Tips +Tricks +desktop shortcuts
to find guidance in setting up Firefox keyboard shortcuts

To create a Firefox shortcut, drap the icon (left-hand side of address bar) to the desktop, go somewhere else, then open up the shortcut to see if it takes you to where you were located when the Firefox shortcut was created.

Hi all,

I just finished building a new computer for a client. After going online and downloading firefox, I started having a problem.
Firefox opens itself and goes to national debtline website. Sometimes It will open 3 or 4 windows with multiple tabs all on NationalDebtline website. I have used AVG, super anti spyware, adaware, and spyware terminator. No luck finding anything on the net about this, so I figured maybe the good community at bleepingcomputer.com had some ideas.

I am suppose to deliver the computer tomorrow and the problem is that I was hired to build my client a new one because he could not stand having pop ups on his old one. I can not deliver him a new computer with a pop up website!!!

Thanks,
Nomad78

Every once in a while while surfing the net, a new tab will open automatically, showing the content of my C: drive all nicely organised in its appropriate folders, ready to be explored. Why is that? Initially i thought someone was copying my files I hope its nothing bad! Can someone please shed some light? Thanks,

So for example when opening website LoL Pro - Pro League Of Legends Guides and Videos it looks like this
I have had the same problem with some other sites. Sometimes it looks like that, sometimes it works correctly. I dont know if this has anything to do with this, but i runned some kind of computer cleaning program and after that the website started looking like that. But I had the same problem with an other website named solomid.net, but now it works normally.

EDIT: Ok when I opened website www.owned.tv it says

Click Close below.
* Clean your Cache and Cookies in Firefox (In case you also have Firefox installed):Go to Tools > Options.

Click the Clear now button below.. A new window will popup what to clear.
Select all and click the Clear button again.
Click OK to close the Options window
* Clean other Temporary files + Recycle bin Go to start > run and type: cleanmgr and click ok.
Let it scan your system for files to remove.
Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
2. Download ComboFix

Double-click ComboFix.exe and follow the prompts. Type 1 (continue) and click Enter.
Don't click the ComboFix window while the fix is running, because that may cause your system to hang.
When finished and after reboot (in case it asks to reboot), Combofix will open again to gather the necessary information for the log. This may take a bit. When done, Combofix will close and a log should open, Combofix.txt.
Post the contents of this log in your next reply.
Do NOT post the ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt - unless I ask you to.

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the Watch Topic Button, select Immediate Notification, and click on Proceed. This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer. NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.These are the programs I would like you to run next, if you have any problems with these just skip it and run the next one.-Security Check-Download Security Check by screen317 from here.Save it to your Desktop.Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.-AdwCleaner-Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
Close all open programs and internet browsers.Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.Click on Delete.Confirm each time with Ok.Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.--RogueKiller-- Download & SAVE to your Desktop RogueKiller or from here

I will admit that my normal web access is through Mozilla Firefox but I do use I.E. on a number of occasions. My problem is that, when I put in a search, or type in a URL in to the address bar on I.E., it opens up and/or goes to the page in Firefox. I can't get off my home page in I.E.

I have tried only opening I.E., and/or closing Firefox but it still does the same thing. Can anyone suggest how I can fix it so I can use I.E. too?

[Text of this message copied from the archives of another help forum. There, someone suggested that user set IE to be the default browser. I tried that but it didn't work.]

A:Internet Explorer Opens Firefox Instead.

If you're using XP, give this a try.DefaultBrowser allows you set the default web browser for your user profile in Windows XP, without affecting the other users. The list of browsers you see in the Presets are tested and working flawlessly as user defaults. Note that the user interface in Windows XP does not provide an option for setting the default browser for each user.This utility is designed for Windows? XP systems only.Apart from the Presets list, there is an option at the bottom which allows you choose the Web Browser program file and set it as the default. You may use this section if your favorite browser is not listed under Presets. As you read in the dialog, this method does not work with all the browsers. If the results are not satisfactory using this method, you can undo the configuration by clicking the Reset button.Here is the list of Web browsers that I've tested (and working) for the per-user feasibility, and their versions: (continued)....http://windowsxp.mvps.org/defaultbrowser.htm

A:Ad-ware opens tabs in Firefox

I see you have disabled some startuo items with Msconfig. Please open it and select normal startup. I need to see everything that is running on your PC to help you clean it out, you may return it to the way it was when we are finished.

You have the latest version of VX2. Download L2mfix from one of these two locations:

http://www.atribune.org/downloads/l2mfix.exe
http://www.downloads.subratam.org/l2mfix.exe

Save the file to your desktop and double click l2mfix.exe. Click the Install button to extract the files and follow the prompts, then open the newly added l2mfix folder on your desktop. Double click l2mfix.bat and select option #1 for Run Find Log by typing 1 and then pressing enter. This will scan your computer and it may appear nothing is happening, then, after a minute or 2, notepad will open with a log. Copy the contents of that log and paste it into this thread.

Close any programs you have open since this step requires a reboot.

From the l2mfix folder on your desktop, double click l2mfix.bat and select option #2 for Run Fix by typing 2 and then pressing enter. It will process then start. Your desktop and icons will disappear (this is normal). L2mfix will continue to scan your computer and when it's finished, it will be ready for a reboot. Press any key to reboot. After the reboot notepad will open with a log. Copy the contents of that log and paste it back into this thread, along with a new hijackthis log.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT run any other files in the l2mfix folder unless you are asked to do so!
If after the reboot the log does not open double click on it in the l2mfix folder.

Hi Folks
Every so often, when I log in to my laptop (HP Pavilion g6) when I go to the desktop from the Windows tile display screen and Firefox opens (always) on the "Bing" website. This is not the website I have set as my 'Home Page' in Firefox and I have not clicked on anything other than the tile to open the program I want to use ... Mailwasher, Word, Outlook etc.
I've checked the Start folder and I can't find anything that might obviously be the cause. This is really annoying, has anyone else had this problem.

RevPete

A:Firefox opens on its own and to the Bing website!

I would expect anything in the start folder to run consistently at start-up rather than intermittently as in your case. The same for most things I can think of that are set to start up in hklm/software/Microsoft/windows/current version/run.

You could use more intelligent software utility like Ccleaner to look and see what is being run at startup and possibly identify anything suspect. As ALWAYS when encountering this type of anomaly you should first scan your system for malware. I find Malwarebytes quite good.

When I open up Firefox, the screen is blank and "http://en-us.start3.mozilla.com/firefox?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official" is in the URL, if that means anything.

At one point it said to unclick "work offline" but it is unclicked. When I click on a bookmarked site or enter one in, the "X" (stop loading button) flashes, and I assume that's cancelling the request.

I had no problems with firefox before although I did get it when IE simply stop opening about a month ago.

One of the errors in the error console comes up
"Error: uncaught exception: [Exception...

I have IE6 on XP and when I enter an address into the adress bar and hit enter, nothing happens to the ie browser window but the address entered then opens in a new firefox window?

Or if I do get a page to load in ie6, if I click a link on that page, it then opens that link in a new firefox window.

I also have ie7 installed to a temp location so I could test it before doing a full install but it has been working for a while without a problem until recently. IE7 still works fine.

I did the scan with the winxp cd to check my system files.

It is also kind of random and doesn't happen all the time or if I close and restart ie6 it will usually work fine again for a while.

Any ideas on how to fix or what caused it?

thanks
