I pretty much only use Firefox, and I probably don't have the latest version. Every once in a while, I get re-directed to Happili, and my browser just runs more slowly now. Can you help?

Also, I did a scan with Avira Anti-vir, and it quarantined some files, but it didn't solve the problem.

Hello, moved you from XP to Am I Infected.

The problem may be an add-on in Firefox called "performance cache" or another one.

Try disabling them one at a time and see which one was at fault.

How to disable extensions and plugins

Keeping your third-party plugins up to date



Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.

Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  • Flush DNS
  • Report IE Proxy Settings
  • Reset IE Proxy Settings
  • Report FF Proxy Settings
  • Reset FF Proxy Settings
  • List content of Hosts
  • List IP configuration
  • List Winsock Entries
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.

Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.

I didn't see any plug-ins called "performance cache." Did you want me to disable all of them? So far, I haven't disabled any of them, but I did run the MiniToolBox. (thanks for the quick response!) Here is the report:

Happy Easter! I'll be away from my computer for most of the day Sunday (family obligations) Monday I'll be back at work. I sincerely hope you have a nice Easter Sunday with your family, and lets start this again later.

Hello, was with family all day too .. Happpy Easter.

That was jusr a prominent one i've seen and try that first. you can disable all and see if it stops. If so ,then you will have to do one by one to find it.

Ok, did my mini tool box report tell you anything? I'll try disabling my plug-ins. The next opportunity I'll have will be after 7pm tomorrow (4/9). Is this good advice or bad?

Yes.. You probably infected yourself from torrent dowmload. Your Java needs an update,preferably to Java 7.

and Your HOSTS file may be infected.
Reset the HOSTS file
As this infection also changes your Windows HOSTS file, we want to replace this file with the default version for your operating system.
Some types of malware will alter the HOSTS file as part of its infection. Please follow the instructions provided in How do I reset the hosts file back to the default?

To reset the hosts file automatically,go HERE click the Posted Image button. Then just follow the prompts in the Fix it wizard.


OR
Click Run in the File Download dialog box or save MicrosoftFixit50267.msi to your Desktop and double-click on it to run. Then just follow the promots in the Fix it wizard



Is this good advice or bad?
As I noted it can be dangeros.. They could not pot the logs I asked for ,so I cannot confirm if thay had it or removed it. I replied in that topic.

If its in the addons that is a much safer removal. If Eraser kills the comp,I can't fix it. If some we run does we can.

Okay, on I deleted all of my plug-ins for Firefox, and then updated to the latest version. That seemed to make the re-directs go away. Then I reset the "host" using the automatic method and then restarted. What's next? Should I get Java 7?

Also, possibly unrelated, after startup this time (and maybe last time) I got the following error message:

Error loading C:\DOCUME~1\Chris\LOCALS~1\Temp\bneapi.dll
The specified module could not be found

It's possible that Avira "quarantined" it when I ran my last scan. Any idea what that is?

OK,this looks good a little mopping up is left.

Error loading C:\DOCUME~1\Chris\LOCALS~1\Temp\bneapi.dll
The specified module could not be found



Its not unusual to receive such an error after using specialized fix tools.

A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads.

To resolve this, download Autoruns search for the related entry and then delete it.

Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this.)
Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.
Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.
Right-click on the entry and choose delete. --->> this file bneapi.dll
Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.



UPdate Java to thes latest.
You want this file off the download page... Windows x86 (32-bit) Offline 19.38 MB jre-7u3-windows-i586.exe
2nd from bottom.

Important Note: Your version of Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malicious sites can use to exploit and infect your system.Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Version 7 and save it to your desktop.
  • Look for "Java Platform, Standard Edition".
  • Click the "Download JRE" button to the right.
  • Read the License Agreement, and then check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • From the list, select your OS and Platform (32-bit or 64-bit).
  • If a download for an Offline Installation is available, it is recommended to choose that and save the file to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
Go to Posted Image > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features in Vista/Windows 7 and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check (highlight) any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button and follow the onscreen instructions for the Java uninstaller.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-7u3-windows-i586.exe (or jre-7u3-windows-x64.exe for 64-bit) to install the newest version.
  • If using Windows 7 or Vista and the installer refuses to launch due to insufficient user permissions, then Run As Administrator.
  • When the Java Setup - Welcome window opens, click the Install > button.
  • If offered to install a Toolbar, just uncheck the box before continuing unless you want it.
  • The McAfee Security Scan Plus tool is installed by default unless you uncheck the McAfee installation box when updating Java.
Note: The Java Quick Starter (JQS.exe) adds a service to improve the initial startup time of Java applets and applications but it's not necessary.
To disable the JQS service if you don't want to use it:
  • Go to Start > Control Panel > Java > Advanced > Miscellaneous and uncheck the box for Java Quick Starter.
  • Click Ok and reboot your computer.




Now Reboot the machine..


Finally..... Now you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok". Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
  • Click the "More Options" tab, then click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.
  • Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"
  • Click Yes, then click Ok.
  • Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"
  • Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically.
Vista Users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point and Disk Cleanup.

Tips to protect yourself against malware and reduce the potential for re-infection:Avoid gaming sites, pirated software, cracking tools, keygens, and peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing programs. They are a security risk which can make your computer susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections, remote attacks, exposure of personal information, and identity theft. Many malicious worms and Trojans spread across P2P file sharing networks, gaming and underground sites. Users visiting such pages may see innocuous-looking banner ads containing code which can trigger pop-up ads and malicious Flash ads that install viruses, Trojans and spyware. Ads are a target for hackers because they offer a stealthy way to distribute malware to a wide range of Internet users. The best way to reduce the risk of infection is to avoid these types of web sites and not use any P2P applications. Read P2P Software User Advisories and Risks of File-Sharing Technology.

Keeping Autorun enabled on USB and other removable drives has become a significant security risk due to the increasing number of malware variants that can infect them and transfer the infection to your computer. To learn more about this risk, please read:

Okay, ran the Autoruns and saw the offending file and deleted it. Upon restart, there was no error message! However, there was another error message (I saw it last time too, but didn't think anything of it) It was quite generic looking and it said "profile not found." It was apparently from Avira, since when I closed when I closed it, it made a window from Avira go away along the task bar.

Installing the java file that you described. Also, when I did, the windows automatic update gave an alert and wanted me to do an update. I'll finish with Java and then allow windows to update.
