I've been getting Warning: Unresponsive Scripts in my firefox when I load certain sites. It makes my laptop freeze for a couple of minutes/go really slow. I'm not sure if this is a firefox problem or a malware problem, as a few days ago I had a huge malware attack but the person advising me didn't seem to think it had to do something with malware. I googled around and people have been saying updating firefox should fix it, but I've updated to the latest version (3.6) and I'm still having problems. My OS is Windows XP Professional.
Yes the person advising me said that the scan results seem okay, but today I've been browsing around and 1 or 2 times this morning my search results redirects to an ad site.. I'm not sure if this was set from said websites I was clicking the links to or if its unresolved malware. Because back when I was sure this was malware, every time I click a search result link it would redirect and sometimes tabs would be added randomly. I'm performing google searches now and so far no re-directing has occured.
This is the link to my malware topic if you need to see it: hxxp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=295841&st=0&p=1631011&#entry1631011 (I'm not sure what the etiquette is in linking to within the forum but I replaced http with hxxp just in case). I will need to perform a few more scans to determine if it may be caused by malware (just did a full MBAM scan and it was clean), but I was wondering if there was anything browser-wise I could consider in the mean time?
Thanks for the quick reply. Is it possible this TDSS rootkit is the reason of my weird firefox behaviour? Also, it seems in that forum it requires you to know what malware is infecting you, otherwise it'll be moved to the Am I Infected forum. I'm not sure what I should ask help for, the TDSS rootkit or the re-directing thing (there is a google redirecting virus I think)? Sorry for the probably silly questions. >__<;
There are no silly questions
While creating new topic, simply post a link to your "Am I Infected?" link, tell them about redirection and say, that since TDSS rootkit was detected, you suspect, it wasn't fully removed.
