I am running MS Windows XP Home Edition 2002 Service Pack 3. Browser is Firefox 4.0.1 with Ad Blocker Plus and NoScript. All of those are up to date.
Over the last few days I have been having issues with certain web pages not loading correctly or looking as they should. I know that NoScript can keep certain web pages from loading the way they should, but last night I went to Yahoo and to Games and clicked on a certain game link and it kept taking me to Yahoo Mail and another game link kept reloading. The browser has been especially slow lately and I just want to make sure that I do not have a rootkit or other nasty virus that is potentially stealing my information.

Spyware and antivrus ran: MBAM-updated and ran yesterday-nothing found; McAfee updated and ran-nothing found; Spywareblaster, updated and all items are protected; SuperAntiSpyware-update and found a few cookies; AdAware updated and ran-found some items in the registry keys.

Today there was an alert from WinPatrol that the HOST was changed and I denied the change. I cannot find the alert but will keep looking for it. If I need to run something else, please let me know Safe Mode or Regular. Thank you!
