Guys i need some help. Firefox is stalling and every now and then I get the message "warning script is unresponsive" my question is Is this a sign of a virus or rookit? Also I was reading about wormbot. Is this a virus or some type of Malware?..... I currently run Malware Anti spy ware, but has been detecting nothing of late. Also I tried to install Spy Bot S&D, but it would freeze up before running so i had to uninstall it....................thanks currently running windows xp

Possibly some add-on is playing games with you.

Close Firefox. Go Start>All Programs>Mozilla Firefox, click on Mozilla Firefox (safe mode). Same thing?

Do you have latest Java installed?

A search for wormbot turned up this -

According to http://www.hosts-file.net/ if you access this domain you risk to unwillingly download and install malicious software (virus, trojans, spyware, etc) that may damage your computer.
