Hi I have previously posted this topic in another area of bleepingcomputer due to my belief that I did not have a virus, just a software conflict. I was advised otherwise and told to post a new topic here. This is a link to the previous topic and all the things I tried to rectify it: Here

To begin, I have no other issues with my computer except in facebook. I can enter the facebook site fine, logging in is no problem at all. However everytime I try to use an application like farmville then it starts to get a little crazy. The app will start then flash immediatly to a blank screen with the html About:Blank for less than a second, then flash to a partial facebook log in screen, then repeat the process. I've attempted to stop all processes at the log in screen and refresh or log in but it does not work. Strangly I have run rkill and it partially works, it says there are no problems but i will be able to enter the app, but i will not be able to post to my wall. The fix will stop working after a few hours and again rkill will temporarily fix it. the rkill log is in the link provided above. Again, I have not experienced this problem at any time other than facebook apps. Hope you can help me.

Unfortunately, just like cwshredder, it found nothing wrong.

Lets get a deeper look.
Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run (it may not on a 64 bit system) skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.

Sorry about the wait our volunteer got backlogged.
You are in the 2nd slot.

files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

The current wait time is 1 - 5 days and ALL logs are answered.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
