I installed a windows update two or three days ago and ever since, I've had two constantly recurring problems:
1. Mozilla Firefox crashes randomly. I noticed on one occasion, all my bookmarks and other stuff were wiped clean.
2. Something called awd_dev_06 or 02 continuously tries to load. This happens 20-30 times during the day. I get a sound, screen goes black for a millisecond, things hang, then the load button shows in the taskbar. It finishes loading. Then several minutes or an hour later, it will do it all over again.
What I've Done:
Checked for Registry errors and fixed them with Ccleaner
Checked for updates to devices and drivers
Changed a setting under devices for manual updates (let me do it)
Did a microsoft security scan - no issues
Checked plugins - all updated
and a few other things...
I have McAfee running as part of my at&t service. Used to have spybot but it quit working with windows 8.
Whatever is causing this is beyond my tinkering. Can someone please help?
