I'm usually no newbie when it comes to things like these. But I have tried everything that I have thought of and still no change, so I call for help.

Once in a while, usually a few days, my Firefox completely resets. No bookmarks, no history, nothing. All my private data is cleared, and I have not configured it to clear private data automatically. I've been using fx for the past year, and nothing like this has ever happened before. Also, today, when I was saving a bookmark on how to remove Viva Termex (this is the first bookmark I've saved since this started, by the way), nothing happened when I pressed "OK". By that, I mean the button got "depressed", as it should, but after that, the "Add Bookmark" window didn't close and nothing else happened.

A few days ago, I also got a DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL blue screen. I didn't take the STOP code (unfortunatly...), but from my past experiences that is usually sign of a significant infection or driver incompatibility.

A rootkit, maybe? Neither Avira, AVG, or Comodo has detected anything unwanted, and I have done a CCleaner scan yesterday. Here is my HijackThis log, and just a note, I do not have Vundo, I just never use BHOs and AppInits.

Hello Fredil Yupigo and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I don't see any signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.

The only thing I do see is that the version of java installed on this machine is extremely out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. I recommend following these steps to remove older version Java components and updating to the latest version.

Updating Java:
Note: If there is an Update XX in the name then the "XX" in the version will be whatever the latest version is.
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.0 Update XX (if present).
  • Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-1_6_0_XX-windowsi586-p.exe to install the newest version.
Blue screen errors are normally a sign of a hardware issue. Either a piece of hardware that is bad or the driver for a piece of hardware. The issue you describe would make me first think of a memory problem (possibly a bad memory chip). I would recommend posting in the Hardware forum and have them run some diagnostics on the system hardware. Let them know that you have already been to this forum and that no malware was found.

Cheers.
