Hello BleepingComputer. A few days ago, I suddenly became unable to upload photos to any site (Wordpress, Twitter, Facebook). I hit browse, find the file, and then when I hit upload, any browser I'm using (Firefox, Chrome, IE) freezes up and I have to alt-ctrl-del to close it.

The first time I noticed this was when I tried to upload a .png file which I am now unable to delete (says it's in use even though I've closed all programs/restarted). I don't know if this is the cause of the problem, but it's "bleeping" frustrating. Any help would certainly be appreciated!

Thanks!

It sounds like you do not have javascript on.

Solutions:

Internet Explorer
Mozilla Firefox

In Google Chrome, find a menu where the submenu "Developer>" is located and mouseover it, then click "Debug Javascript."

Do you have the latest Windows XP service pack(Service Pack 3). Having the latest service pack for you Windows XP will solve some problems.

Checking the latest version: On the desktop or from the Start menu, right-click Computer or My Computer. From the menu that appears, select Properties, and you should see the version number along with other information about your computer.

If it does not read Service Pack 3, then go to Microsoft Windows Update and the update should appear. On the top of the page it should say Microsoft Update. If it does not, then on the right panel you will see a news article that say "Upgrade to Microsoft Update." Click that and install the latest Windows Update downloader. All of this may help. Keep letting me know your issues.

All of a sudden, out of nowhere, I'm getting a crazy amount of popups! I have my AVG scanning and I see a bunch of trojans. Assuming AVG doesn't fix this, what can I do?

That is a different issue, and I see you have posted about it here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/194067/crazy-popups/

I have shifted the topic to the Am I Infected forum where it can get the attention it deserves. To avoid confusion and because the original issue has been resolved, I am closing this topic.
