I can't get simple access to some of my  banking accounts.

 

I think it might be related to OK-ing a popup to request or insist on a

certified signature.

 

I'm guessing ADOBE is the culprit but not sure.

 

Any help appreciated.

You don't mentions what browser you are using. If IE, go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737 and run the fix it there.

Thanks for the response.

 

I'm using Mozilla Firefox.

 

Do they a similar fix and will it wipe out a lot of other stuff?

Type about:config in the address bar and press enter. Accept the void warranty stupidity. Type cert in the search field. if anything comes up bold, right click it and reset. Restart FF.

Just an educated guess. Let me know one way or the other whether it works.

There are 14 items under "cert" - preferences which I am unable to copy and paste to you.

 

None are in bold.

Also...last night I got a popup from "NetworkSolutionsCertificateAuthority.crt" which I installed thinking it was about my financial account.

 

Since then when I access my bank or Fid. Mutual I get a different than normal web site screen which doesn't allow me use it.

When you go into about:config?

 

See if this doesn't solve your certificate problem...

This sound serious. Stop using FF immediately and use IE!

You need to delete your FF profile and create a new one. I'll tell you in a bit. I just want to send this through so you get the email.

Alright here are the instructions...

 

Open the folder C:\Documents and Settings\<your username>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<some random numbers and letters>.default\bookmarkbackups.

Take the lastly created bookmarks-<year>-<month>-<day>.json file and copy it to your desktop.

EDIT: Delete the entire Application Data\Mozilla folder.

Start Firefox, a new profile will be created.

Click on Bookmarks, Show All Bookmarks.

Click on Import and Backup, Restore, Choose File.

Browse to your desktop and double click the .json file.

Your bookmarks will be restored minus the favicons.

You'll have to set your preferences again and reinstall any extensions you had.

 

Start a thread in the Am I infected? forum and let them check you out.

Thanks again, X....I think I may have solved the prob. using FF cert. sig recommendations.

 

I've got my banks and other financial sites back except for one that crashed yesterday.

 

Any more thoughts are welcome.

Please don't start a duplicate thread.

Do what I said in the other thread, including creating a thread in the Am I Infected forum?.

Don't answer here. Answer there.

I used the up-to-date windows CD and that restored XP Home.

 

Still can't access windows IE8 and not sure I care.

 

Thanks, All contribution on the way.
