I think i might have some spyware interferring with firefox, cuase i'm getting pop-ups no matter where i go (in firefox), i've ran spybot, adaware and ms anti-spyware, and they've removed stuff, but nwo i'm having toruble opening Ecplorer (folder) it won't let me browse through it, it says "error has occured, would you like to send this to microsoft?" i click yyes, but this happens everytime...

i also just turned on the "active" protection by microsoft anti-spyware and the pop-ups are gone, but not the explorer error.

EIDT: nvm... after restarting, its all back to normal... (or it that what it wants me to think :thumbsup: :flowers: )

That was just at test to see if your browser was vulnerable to this exploit, which all versions of Firefox, are.
Have you disabled JavaScript, till they get it fixed?

Tools / Options / Web Features / uncheck "Enable JavaScript"

From the first link I posted.

........ can be exploited by malicious people to gain knowledge of potentially sensitive information. ........ due to an error in the JavaScript engine ........ a test, which can be used to check if your browser is affected by this issue ....... The vulnerability has been confirmed in versions 1.0.1 and 1.0.2. Other versions may also be affected.


Just disable JavaScript till they get it fixed.

I did disable JavaScript and Java and I still get the frickin' popups! ahah!!! I'm ready to go nuts!

Spybot, Ad-Aware, MS Anti-Spyware, AVG all have found nothing! :thumbsup:

However I'm currently looking into this thing called "A-Squared." And so far its found 2 things (its been running for the last 2 hours, so hopefully once it removes 2 "malwares" maybe i won't have this problem anymore...

Also I just heard about this new anti-virus called karpesky, i don't kno if its any better than AVG, but I'll have to look into that.
