Hi All,
When I got on my Toshiba Laptop today and opened Firefox, I got the following error message:

Posted Image

Everything was working fine last night.

My specs are as follows:
  • Toshiba Satellite A215
  • Windows Vista Home Basic SP2
  • Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 1.70 GHz
  • RAM 2.00 GB
  • 32 Bit OS
  • Firefox Ver. 18.0
  • AVG Free Edition 2013

I can click on the "OK" button and don't seem to have any problems surfing. All of my booksmarks that I tried worked.
Scanned with AVG, Malwarebyes, SuperAntiSpy. No malware was found.

NOTE: AVG is my active anti-virus program. I manually run Malwarebytes about every 2 to 3 weeks just in case something has slipped past AVG.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Pretty sure I have worked out the Javascript error I was getting in F/F.
As stated in my first post I was using AVG Free as my AV. I also had AVG SafeSearch Toolbar installed. My homepage in F/F was Google Search. I noticed though that when I opened a new tab it opened with AVG Search. ]Using AVG Search instead of Google I did not get the error message.
I changed my homepage in F/F to AVG Search - no Javascript error.
Changed homepage back to Google Search and disabled the AVG SafeSearch Toolbar - again no Javascript error.
Evidently there was some kind of conflict or something between Google Search and the AVG SafeSearch Toolbar.

I have noticed that in the Malware Removal Forum that a lot of the workers suggest Microsoft Essentials to a lot of the people they help as being a very good free AV. I believe I will uninstall AVG Free and try Microsoft Essentials. It must be pretty good with all the recommendations I have seen for it on BleepingComputers. I do have a question about it though but will ask it in the Malware Forum.
