    Thanks in advance for any help offered...

    Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version
    OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 32 bit
    Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II Dual-Core M300, x64 Family 16 Model 6 Stepping 2
    Processor Count: 2
    RAM: 2812 Mb
    Graphics Card: AMD M860G with ATI Mobility Radeon 4100, 256 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: Total - 295635 MB, Free - 122230 MB;
    Motherboard: TOSHIBA, Portable PC
    Antivirus: Avira Antivirus, Updated and Enabled

    Several Issues..
    Using Firefox 37.0.0 (which I believe I did an update to get this version a few days ago) - It takes forever for pages to load... usually get a message that ADOBE HAS CRASHED - download Adobe Flashplayer again and again and again... Eventually, Firefox CLOSES RANDOMLY... says there was an error and asks me to either restart or quit

    SearchDonkey - I just noticed this little icon at the bottom of my screen. I can't seem to find it to uninstall it.... Not sure if it was always there and I just didn't realize it.

    For a couple of days after using this new version of Firefox a tab would all of a sudden open over the one I was viewing and a screen named Google.com would appear. It didn't seem to really be THE Google as lots of different sites were listed on it.

    Google - For months I haven't been able to use Google at all. If I try and search with it it just looks as if it is trying to load continuously. I just tried again and a Tab came up that says, "Annual Visitor Survey." Then the page says, "Congratulations!
    You are Todays Lucky Visitor. Click OK to continue."

    Using the FREE version of Avira - ran a scan yesterday and it found lots of malware which it quarantined somewhere.

    Feel as if my computer is infected. Every once in awhile a tab will open that says something like "you have a serious virus... click here for assistance." I never click it... just close the tab.

    Also, getting a lot of random e-mail from people I don't know...

    That's about if for now. Thank you!
