I did a scan this afternoon with AVG Antispware and when it was finished it had found 4 tracking cookies and one called Adware.chitika. For the first 4 tracking cookies it advised "Delete" but the chitika one said "Ignore Once". As I had never seen this warning before I opened up the help page for an explanation. When I closed the help page I noticed that at the bottom instead of saying "Recommend Action" it now said "Custom". As soon as I changed it back to the "Recommend Action" setting which I have always had the "Ignore Once" immediately changed to "Quarantine". I clicked the button and now it lies in Quarantine but now I can't open Firefox. I can open Internet Explorer to get on line.
I googled the Adware.chitika but there seems to be confusion over it.Can anyone here tell me if my AVG Antispyware has been infected as I did not change the setting from Recommend to Custom and am not sure quite what to do now.
