This is my second time in this forum looking for help. First time, March/2009 I was helped by an helper in this forum.
His name was farbar. He helped me great deal by guiding me step by step and he gave me very useful information.
So far I had no problem until last night.
Last night, I was looking for a Hardware Specification on the Net after Googling. I found a Russian web-site with
the information I was looking for. Even though I don't know Russian, I was looking for specific numbers for that
Hardware. So, I visited this Russian site to find what I was looking for. And everything happened after that. Suddenly,
new pages started opening up on Firefox browser without my control. I exit the browser, and re-openned it again
and new Russian porn pages were opening up in my browser first tab.
So I tried to solve this problem by following Farbar's instructions he gave me several months ago. Somehow I
printed out the correspondence we had. I ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware software twice(Full scan) but no
objects found infected. I also ran CCleaner and cleaned my system with all cookies and so on. Then Russian
pages stopped poping up on my Firefox browser. But after that, now my Firefox acting weird. For example,
I have 5 web-page tabs were open on my Firefox, and when I exit it and reopened again, those 5 tabs
are gone, and only one new page is open on my Firefox browser. Then I exit Firefox again, and when I reopen
it this time I see my last visited 5 tabs again. This goes on and on. I did not have this problem before.
I also ran ComboFix, but when I try to uninstall ComboFix with command: ComboFix /u , It doesn't uninstall
ComboFix instead it tries to install ComboFix again. I did that also several times but no success so far to
So, I am sure that something wrong with my system. Firefox is not functioning properly. Either I am hacked
or infected by a malicous Malware. So I need your help to solve this problem. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
My System: Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 3
My Browser: Firefox
