On Saturday when I went to use Firefox, I got this strange message:
"Could not initialize the application's security components, Most likely cause is problems with files in your app's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions or that your hard drive is not full. Exit app and fix problem."
Okay...now Firefox has been working perfectly up to Sat and it is the only browser that I use. So I uninstalled and re-installed Firefox...same message. Ran scans...got a few puppies on Super Anti Spyware but Mbam and advast! were clean.
Wait till son comes home, cry help!, he has no clue on the message, never saw that one from Firefox, and he checked the hard drive...not full and he feels plenty of room. Perhaps a Firefox issue? Let the computer think...
Well today, Sunday, I am still getting the same message and forgot to add that Firefox cannot access the net. I'm stumped, because Chrome and IE both work fine.
What I got is an emachine running WinXP service pack 3...zone alarm, avast!, super anti spyware and mbam.
Any and all suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated because my son and I are both stumped...
