    I get a window at bootup that I can't seem to get rid of or know what it's about. In the window is the text...
    "This content cannot be displayed in a frame
    To help protect the security of information you enter into this website, the publisher of this content does not allow it to be displayed in a frame.
    What you can try:
    Open this content in a new window "

    the last line is linked and goes to...
    javascript:makeNewWindow();

    I don't want to click it as I don't know where it goes to. This window is just there, at bootup, without any other programs running. Anyone know what the heck is going on?

    Seems like an application on your computer is calling that website.


    1- Please click HERE to download HijackThis.
    2- Run the program.
    3- Click on the Main Menu button if not already there.
    4- Select Do a system scan and save a logfile.
    5- Copy and paste the scan log from Notepad into your next reply.
    6- Do not "Fix" anything unless advised to do so.

    Well I was able to centralize the strange window on my desktop and close it (it was "pinned to the upper left corner of my desktop). After reboot, it hasn't appeared again. Although it seems to have done the trick, here is a copy/paste of the HJT log (HJT took a long time to scan it seems)...

    I guess you didn't see anything wrong in the HJT log then. Thanks.

    Your O24 entry is an Active Desktop Component. They are local or remote html files that are embedded directly onto your desktop as a background. Infections use this method to embed messages, pictures, or web pages directly on to a user's desktop.

    Your error message could very well come from that Facebook page. If you ever get it again, try removing that desktop background.


    Run HijackThis again.

    Select Do a system scan only.

    Put a check mark on:

    O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [AvgUninstallURL] cmd.exe /c start http://www.avg.com/ww.special-uninstallation-feedback-appf?lic=NFVWSzItQUxZTUYtU0xLTFUtQVoyVUItNkdPS0ItSkhGTkg"&"inst=NzctNTg2MTg zODYwLVQ0LUJBKzEtS1YzKzctWEwrMS1GUDkrNi1CQVI5RysxLVRCOSsyLUZMKzktRjEwTSs1LV FJWDErNC1YMjAxMCsyLUYxME0xMEQrMS1MSUMrNzctU1AxKzEtU1VEKzEtUzFJKzEtU1UzKzEtR kwxMCsxLVRVRyszLUREVCsw"&"prod=90"&"ver=10.0.1390

    Click Fix checked.

    If you wish, you can also Fix the following entry:

    O24 - Desktop Component 1: (no name) - http://www.facebook.com/kaznof


    Other than that, there's nothing to be concerned about in that log.

    Thanks. I don't have AVG any more. In a prior TSG session, they recommended removing it and installing MS Security Essentials instead. I removed both the O4 and O24 entry. Thanks again.
