|I made a topic here some time ago pertaining to a virus or some other malware that was causing me to see the same pop-up over and over again. I have since remedied the pop-up issue, but there are other problems that I cannot seem to cure.|
- Firefox no longer works. I have un-installed and re-installed it, but it simply will not open. No error messages. When I double-click the desktop icon for Firefox, I see the hourglass 'waiting' symbol and then nothing happens.
- Search engine results take me to incorrect sites. No matter what engine I use or what I search for, I will always be linked to random places in a new window. The URL is always "http://asiuoqgusdbaksd.com/go.php?" followed by a long slew of numbers and letters, and then I get redirected to places like financial aid sites random search engines. I have tried blocking the offending initial URL, but it doesn't stop the redirecting.
- Windows NotePad will not open. Every time I try to open a TXT file, I get told "To help rotect your computer, Windows has closed this program". I don't use NotePad that much, but it should still work.
I have run Malware Sweeper and it keeps finding things with the prefix "Feebs". I believe the file names were "Feebs. B" and "Feebs. E", and no matter how many times I scan and remove these files, they always come back. Windows Live OneCare also won't remove them.
Are these 'Feebs' files causing the problems?
