I have run scans with... Avast Antivirus, Malwarebytes, Ad-Aware and another programme I cant recall. Avast found a few things, mostly cookies, removed them but it is still there. In the past Malwarebytes has found and removed anything I have had but this is just baffling. At times when the random tab openings happen Avast lets me know it has blocked an attack from malicious stuff located in firefox.exe itself.
My computer has had a few problems recently, I get a stop 0x0000024, blue screen error I think when trying to boot. To boot I have to run XP in debugging mode (not sure if this has anything to do with it) so I generally just leave my PC in hibernation to avoid having to boot up everytime I want to use it. I dont know what I have done with my XP CD so a simple re-install or repair hasnt been tried yet. I cant get into safe mode or any other mode with exception to debugging mode.
Man I hope someone out there can help me. Usually im pretty good at cleaning my system from stuff like this but this 1 has me stumped.
EDIT: Moved from XP forum to Am I Infected, more appropriate forum ~ Hamluis.
