Sometimes when I try to load a page on Firefox (especially when my connection is slow) instead of getting the page, I get weird source code or images from other opened tabs. Now it happens almost every time. Example:
<!-- no cache headers -->
<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />
<meta http-equiv="Expires" content="-1" />
<meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache" />
<!-- end no cache headers -->
<!-- BEGIN TEMPLATE: headinclude -->
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" />
<meta name="generator" content="vBulletin 3.6.10" />
Either that happens or:
*The page loads halfway and never finishes
*The page never loads at all
I asked one of my roommates and he said this happens on this comp too, so I guess this might be a problem with our router, I don't know. It is suspicious and confusing. This stuff went on for months and nothing weird has happened so we just figured this was nothing.
Early last morning I tried to browse some of my favorite forums. I noticed that I was logged out of them. I logged back in and figured that I accidentally deleted my Firefox private data. When I started Firefox later it happened again. I checked my Firefox options, to see if I had accidentally set it to delete my private info on shutdown and I had not.
Then a few hours ago -in an effort to pay my bills- I tried to log into my online banking account. The account is locked down because someone tried using the wrong password over X amount of times. This freaked me out and is causing me a lot of stress, obviously. Rent is due and my money might be compromised I'm going to call the bank in the morning, but I wouldn't even know what to tell them.
So now I haven't tried to access anything else that's sensitive like my email accounts (which I also need).
I've run Counterspy in quick and deep scans and it hasn't come up with anything. I'm planning to run AntiVir and AVG scans too but I want to wait for an expert to tell me what to do.
Please help me.
