    Firefox first virus?

    I've been using Mozilla Firefox as my browser for about a month after reading about how it was not susceptible to viruses/trojans/spyware etc as Internet Explorer because it didn't use Active X. Now my ISP is telling me there's been reports of the first virus attack on Firefox. I couldn't find...

Sorry to drag you into this. I hat to see him insulting people who are just trying to get...

    Contiuation from "Scandisk Problems"

    Abadaba, is it? I like it, but you're still not making much sense are you. Had any good Chinese lately. Sorry to whoever posted this but ignore anything Abadaba says. He had his account disabled as Wimpy for basically abusing people and not having the intelligence to sit up and feed himself.

    Chinese food

    I'd recognize you anywhere. To all users, this guy had his account disabled as Wimpy for basically abusing people and not having the brains God gave most fire hydrants. Ignore anything he says. Got any good takeout joints in Toronto Wimp?

    Hijack

    otoel Well the break from his idiocy was nice while it lasted. Do you know his new sign on so I can hopefully avoid him and warn others.

    Hijack

    Aca, the real Wimpy 369 I am very glad to see Wimpy's account disabled. At best he was clueless, dispensing either wrong or incomprehensible advice to people who might not have the knowledge to disregard it. He would also hijack threads so that knowledgeable people could't offer suggestions and...

    dial up box

    Barry Sorry it didn't work, discouraging but not unexpected. It's almost certainly a trojan dialer. For a clue look in start/settings/control panel/ internet options/ connections/ settings/properties and see if there are any area codes entered that you didn't put in there for your dial up...

    coolwwwsearch.googlems and dso exploit?

    DSO exploit is a glitch in spybot, ignore it. coolwebsearch, on the other hand is one of the real nasties on the internet, a browser hijacker. Get cwshredder but don't run it until you've dowloaded hijackthis and posted a log on the Security board here. You'll find some very knowledgeable people...

    dial up box

    Barry There is another thread on this forum titled dial up that offered another explanation that you might try: Start/Run type msconfig and see if you have a scheduling agent,mtask, running, if so uncheck it. Perhaps one of those programs is trying to dial up for some reason. This might have...

    dial up box

    Barry I had a similar problem with my computer automatically dailing my internet connection whenever I went to control panel/system/device manager tab. I believe it was spyware or a dialer although Norton antivirus, spybot and adaware se failed to detect it. The two clues I had were: area codes...

    auto dial ... from device manager

    Adaware se didn't find anything either. but I'm certain it was spyware after all because I found several area codes in dialing properties that I had not entered. Went ahead and reformatted and installed Mozilla Firefox. Farewell to IE and its flaws and viruses forever. I might have actually...

    auto dial ... from device manager

    Talked to them already and their guess is that it could be spyware trying to get information off my computer. That actually would be a problem that would do more than either bug me or pale in comparison to everyone else who either has nuked their computer or is trying to remove a browser...

    auto dial ... from device manager

    Wimpy Right, well that's not really the issue is it? Even if I only go there once in a lifetime why would it be trying to connect to the Internet? I'm sort of right back where I started in this forum. If anyone has any ideas on why the computer would connect to the Internet simply by opening up...
