|I use Windows 7, 64 bit. Recently I uninstalled an older version of System Mechanic Professional using Revo uninstaller. The result was that Firefox and Thunerbird, both of which I was using daily, stopped connecting to the Internet, although Internet Explorer does connet. Many of my favorite programs, installed using Firefox, are now unable to update.|
I checked to see that Firefox connection was allowed by my antivirus programs - Windows Firewall and Avast, and it was. I even turned all the AV programs off, with no improvement.
Enum gives me the following:
[color=#FF0000]Windows Firewall is on[/color]
[color=#FF0000]firewall process from Vipre Online Security detected[/color]
[color=#FF9900]antispy process from aSquared/Emsi Software GmbH detected[/color]
1 processes from GFI Software detected
I have never used Vipre, aSquared, or any GFU software.
Any suggestions as to what I should try next?
