Secunia could not update some programs so I was doing them manually. I got a pop up saying my drivers and flash were out of date. I thought to myself, one program at a time and apparently one of them was a trojan/fake/spyware. Firefox is nearly impossible so am currently using Chrome.  I have Privatefirewall 7.0 and avast. Currently secunia says all programs are up to date but I'd like to be able to use Firefox as I wish. I have Windows 8.1 Thanks so much.

G'day bargainholic, and Welcome to BC


Run these for me, in the order listed if you would 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.



Please download and run RKill by Grinler.
 A black DOS box will appear for a short time and then disappear.
 This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
 At most the tool will usually run for about 2 minutes
 Please Copy / Paste the small log back here.

  RKill.exe:    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/10/

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
