Firefox not connecting to https websites after update

Q: Firefox not connecting to https websites after update

Firefox updated and now I can't view ANY https sites, including Facebook and Google. I have emptied the chache and cookies, reset Firefox and re-installed. The error message comes up: "The connection was reset." I can view http websites fine.

Preferred Solution: Firefox not connecting to https websites after update

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Firefox Not Connecting To Internet Websites

If you uninstall Ff through Windows add/delete, you will not lose your bookmarks or passwords; these are kept in a separate folder that is not affected by the Ff uninstall process. Then, when you re-install Ff, all your personal preferences and data will be there; you may, however, have to re-install any extensions.

I have a problem with my computer. I am running Windows Vista, 64 bit, with two GB ram. The computer is a HP Pavilion dv4 entertainment laptop. I use a wired data connection most of the time; if I used wifi in an example, I'll specify that in the given example. I have been expieriencing this problem since about Saturday, June 13th, 2015.
I first noticed my problem when I attempted to load youtube.com in my Firefox browser (32 bit). The website would show the spinning "loading" circle in the top right, however nothing would be loaded.
Checking the Task manager, there was no netowork activity. The Firefox process wasn't using excessive CPU or RAM. Eventually, I noticed that some other websites were not loading properly.
I've recently attempted to load that website in my other installed browsers, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer 9, to no avail.
At one point, I ran a Malwarebytes antivirus scan. It found nothing. However, when I proceded with a system restore (to several days before this problem was detected), the problem was fixed. less than 24 hours later, however, the problem is back again.

I've had a strange issue that may have been caused by upgrading to Noscript 5.1.6. I closed my Firefox earlier today and shortly afterwards re-opened it, with the notification that Noscript had updated. However I found that many other websites had become inaccessible. Paypal.com brought up a screen with a message like "found, return to gb/home", www.bbc.co.uk gave a "301 moved permanently" message, and many other websites only opened as blank pages. Closing and re-opening the browser several times did not fix the problem. My first suspicion was that Noscript's update had caused an issue, so I disabled it, which fixed the issue immediately. After re-enabling it there was still no problem.
In retrospect the URLs I was using were missing the "HTTPS" prefix that is automatically added (my link to "www.bbc.co.uk" ordinarily sends me to "https://www.bbc.co.uk/", "paypal.com" to "https://www.paypal.com/gb/home", etc), which makes me wonder if there was an issue with redirects.
Oddly, one website that loaded fine when all others I tried failed - https://www.redlettermedia.com/ - now returns a "Secure Connection Failed" message - "SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length." Notably, this also happens when I try and access it on my phone, outside of my home network.
I've run a scan with MBAM for good measure, which turned up nothing. The problem appears to be fixed apart from that one website; can anyone shed some light as to what may have happene... Read more

A:HTTPS issue (caused by Firefox addon update?)

Have you updated to Firefox 57? According to the NoScript website it is still not compatible with 57.
NoScript - JavaScript/Java/Flash blocker for a safer Firefox experience! - what is it? - InformAction
Where's NoScript for Firefox 57 "Quantum"?

2017-11-14: We're working hard to make NoScript for Quantum available to you as soon as possible, definitely by the end of this week.
Please be patient: if you feel naked while you're waiting for the "brand new" NoScript, you can still use the "regular" NoScript 5.x (and all the other extensions of yours) on Firefox 52 ESR, which will receive security updates until June 2018. See you soon!
EDIT: Redlettermedia is not a secure site. I just went to it with no problem using Firefox 56 and NoScript enabled. I'm not
updating to 57 until NoScript is compatible. I did look at the scripting being blocked and didn't see anything malicious on
the redlettermedia.com home page.
My NoScript was updated 10 days ago to 5.1.5....you may be allowing their not ready for prime time beta releases.

I'm unable to open any HTTPS website. This morning my router died and I replaced it with a new one. I called my ISP to verify I have correct DNS servers. I can't think of anything that would restrict https in the router..

When I try to load https I get a connection timed out, as if the server isnt there. For example I can load amazon.com, but when I click on my account it times out.

Any suggestions? I realize this might not be Win7 specific..

I have been trying to block access to proxy sites without success. What I have done works on some but not all.

I've used a program called Internet Lock to block the port 443, but still I can access the proxy site.

I've put the name of the domain in the list of block sites, still it passes.

I tried to find out the IP address of the website, but I can't find it. Don't know if that would even work anyway.

One proxy site in particular seems to bypass all locks. https://unblockit.cc

If anyone knows how to block such sites, without losing access to gmail, yahoo mail, hotmail, it would greatly be appreciated.



A:How do I block https(SSL) websites?

I think www.hidemyass.com will also bypass your locks. You can check its IP address using ping or nslookup. You can also block its ip address using your host file.

First off, thank you so much for your help.

I found out my computer was infected by the Ardamax Keylogger virus. Because of this I was unable to log into any accounts (whether email, shopping, even my geek squad account). I would get a "page not found" for any websites that had a login and password screen. Also, my Norton Anti virus and windows firewall was automatically disabled and when I tried to get support I received a "page not found". I restarted in safe mode and downloaded malwarebytes anti-malware and it immediately found the virus in 39 places. It deleted every one of them. I restarted and reran the virus protection and it does not come up at all now so I am assuming all traces of the virus are gone.

My problem is that even after the virus has been deleted, I am still unable to enable my Norton virus protection and my account pages still come up as "page not found". I don't know if this is still a virus issue or if I need to reset something. Before I found this website I tried to fix this issue on my own and found a similiar problem by someone who had this virus and couldn't access internet. I followed instructions to reset winsock settings. This didn't help. I then realized I needed help from a forum and found you guys! Yah!

This has been going on for weeks and Iv tried sooo many things. All the settings, deleting, reinstalling, system restore, shutting down security, bypassing router, checking for updates, some have downloaded the SSL certificate and ''reinstalled it''...I don't know how to do that but it didn't work for them anyway. Iv been trying to get tech ''support'' from the website, my isp etc. but to no avail. We can't load up a game anymore or visit any of their httpS pages. It's not just me, other users are having the exact same problem. so far as I can tell we all have satellite Internet but different providers, not sure if everyone with satellite has the same problem or not. I have wildblue thru dishnetwork. up until recently it worked fine.

For example on the website:


Returns an error for me no matter what browser I use.


Remove the S and the page loads but I can't thru to login because that's thru a secure page.

For the game launcher I can give you an example of what some users have done to ''get around'' the problem. When you try to launch the game it uses this:

Help, I'm ready to pull my hair out. I ran CCleaner on my desktop a couple days ago (I know, bad) and now I am unable to access any secured (https) websites. I have been researching this for 2 days and have tried everything I can find to fix the problem but nothing seems to work. I am using Windows XP Home, IE 7. I'm afraid I have removed something from the registry that is needed to access these types of sites.

I am using a 2 wire 2700 modem/router and have no problems accessing everything with my laptop. I spent an hour on the phone with my ISP, to no avail. I have performed every function I can find from various tech websites but have had no luck.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

So ive been having this problem for about a week now.

I cannot connect to google websites, facebook, email websites. Ive come to the conclusion that its only secure websites as websites like reddit and msn.com work.

Ive tried alot of solutions that have worked for other people from around the web and so far nothing has worked.

These problems happen in IE and Chrome but NOT Firefox.

I dont have an AntiVirus or a Firewall installed, windows firewall is disabled.

Ive Tried:
Checking Use SSL 2.0/3.0
Clearing SSL State
Restarting Computer
Uninstalling browsers
Clearing temporary internet files
Disabling protected mode (Internet Options)
Among various other solutions ive seen around

So does anyone have any idea of what it could be?

Hello mouse now I don't know your reason for not having any AV on board there are plenty of free ones and my philosophy is having one is way better than none at all. I run Kaspersky paid for with add on - on call scanners.

Personally if I were you I would at least run these




download from bleeping computer ? delete any rubbishthese find.

If you feel inclined to have an AV on board take a look at this list
Probably the Best Free Security List in the World - Part I - Page 2

page 2 and I would at least have Windows defender running as well as the firewall - call it paranoia if you will but there are plenty of idiots out there who can and will take advantage of you.

I keep getting errors similar to this in all the browsers I've tried:
This webpage is not available
This is only happening on my PC the rest of the computers and devices load everything fine. When I enter safe mode with networking I can load HTTPS websites and resources.
Here's what I've tried already:
1. tweaking and resetting the IE settings and cleared the caches across all my browsers.

netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface “Wireless Network Connection 4” mtu=1472 store=persistent
replace Local Area Connection with the name of your network adapter and hit Enter.

3. resetting and restarting my router and PC multiple times.
4. In IE settings under "Content"->Clear SSL state
5. I checked my date and time are correct and have tried to change them and apply anyway just to see if it would help.
6. Disable my nod32 protection and try to load an HTTPS website.
7. Removing the openDNS IPs from IPv4 testing and inserting them back in.
8. Disabling windows firewall testing and putting it back on.
I have no idea what's causing this, Everything worked fine a few hours ago until I shutdown my PC and restarted it.

All this week, I have not been able to connect to any site that is secure or https. In addition to that, my touch-pad (this is a laptop) isn't working properly; I can usually use the right side of the pad to scroll up and down on web pages, but this function doesn't work. I don't know for sure, but I figure the problems are related since they began at the same time.

I've searched the internet, and found this site, and it seems accurate. I did run lavasoft adaware at the beginning of this week, and the issues began shortly afterward. I tried the netsh int ip reset logfile.txt command in the command prompt, the WinsockXpfix program, and running the .dll files; all to no avail. I also check my Firefox settings to make sure that I can connect to secure sites. Those options were already checked off and should be working.

There are some websites that use https for some of their pages (like the login screen) and http for other pages like the home screen. On websites like these when I am redirected to an http page after logging in I still have the option of logging in and when I try to do this the page just refreshes. I believe that I am logged in to the website but because I logged in on a page using https if I then go to an http page it doesn't recognise that I am logged in. I think this is a problem with my network settings for connecting to the internet as other people I know are not having my problem on the same sites. How can i fix this?

A:Problems logging in to websites that mix http and https

This issue arises randomly and only once has it ever recovered. Event viewer also does not show anything either. Restarting fixes this issue, but I would rather find out what caused this issue in the first place.

I cannot connect to any sites using HTTP or HTTPS but I can connect to my remote FTP server and PING works for any website. I have used 'netsh' in an attempt to fix my issues but it requires a restart where it would fix it temporarily.

I also cannot access any local IPs or my localhost web server. I can however access some of Google's websites on Google Chrome Dev but not on any other browser. For the other sites I get a TIMED_OUT error. I have reinstalled my network drivers and reset my network settings (including DNS) but nothing else works.

I even turned off Bitdefender Firewall and Antivirus and Malwarebytes and issued a system scan but does not impact anything.

Okay, I'm going crazy over this little problem. A friend/neighbors computers Internet Explorer 7 (now 6) or Firefox 3.0.6 will guit working after about 5 minutes and then will only go to websites that have the S (secure websites) in HTTPS websites, e.g. https://www.aaanetaccess.com...or anything like that. It will quit receiving bytes, but I can Ping www.yahoo.com or www.google.com.

The computer has Windows XP Pro, AMD XP CPU, 512 MB RAM, etc... and it runs great except for this.

I've uninstalled AVAST and Adaware since they had been installed about a week before this occurred, but everything was working fine for that week.

Also uninstalled XP SP3
Let me know if you need more info.

Please help before I lose it!


A:Solved: Internet browsers will only connect to HTTPS websites

Well, I restored the computer back to the day before I had updated Avast (Jan. 15th) and found a mess of problems that I wasn't aware of at the time. Firefox had to be reinstalled. Internet Options wouldn't open and ie7 was working in No-Add-ons mode. I reinstalled ie7 and those apps started working.

And, the internet is now working fine.

Help! my kids have done something to the computer. Recently started getting multiple pop-ups that would happen even when IE was not open. I've run ad-aware, downloaded spybot s&d but when I tried to run it, it wanted to update the definition files, so I told it to downoad updates and it came back with a socket error #10061 Connection actively refused. Previously I tried a few other web sites with no success either. I did notice that everytime IE tries to connects to a https website, that the usual response is that it cant find the page.

I started searching around on my computer to find that whatever they had done inadvertantly de-activated the firewall... I've since re-activated, but still cannot connect to https or use webpages that try to run downloads when you click a button.

Computer is a sony vaio, 1.6, 512ram, XP (sp1), IE 6.0... been running okay up till a week or so ago...

I could not get IE9 to login to the Compass Bank or Chase websites. It ends up that the setting to not allow encrypted web pages to be written to disk was the issue. In IE8 and earlier this was not a problem (and should not be a problem in IE9), but in IE9 they must be handling the rendering of SSL pages differently and that option prevents the rendering of many SSL pages. Anyway, I am sure MS has already figured this out and will sliently repair it in a future update. Until then, you have to set policy to allow writes of encryped pages to disk.

A:[SOLVED] IE9 doesn't work on bank websites: https bug resolved

"Save encrypted pages to disk" is the default setting anyway, so unless you've been "meddling" with the defaults you shouldn't have any problem with secure sites.

Hello, recently I encountered an issue with my PC. Specifically, various TCPip connections are being made to various sites (Akamai, Amazonaws, and others) while I am not in my internet browser. Even more concerning is that my explorer.exe is establishing a connection through port 443 (HTTPS) to a Windows.com domain (according to CurrPorts app). I'm not sure if that's the norm, or not, but, I don't see why my explorer.exe of all things needs to have an active connection to the web. While looking at IPConfig (from CMD.exe) I'm noticing that my IPv6 connection is using a temporary IPv6 address. Not being greatly familiar with advanced network settings, this threw a red flag up for me (among other things), as I hadn't configured my network to run in such a manner.
After some preliminary checks I'm coming up empty. However, I'm certain I have some sort of Trojan/Malware that has corrupted core system files, as I have a lot of unsolicited network activity (although typically unnoticeable without a Resource Monitor/ CurrPorts).
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. I'm currently in the process of downloading the required anti-malware/virus programs which you request reports from, so lets track this thing down!

Good day Thanks for reading. I'll try to be brief but clear. Thanks very much for your time, I really appreciate your help with this - MartiThe problem: When I use a (HTTPS) secure bank website, I see a false 'copy' page, asking for password & security info. Called the bank; they say it's a virus. I run TrendMicro Internet Security, which finds no problems in a full scan. This occurs in IE and Firefox browsers.

I have 4 browsers on my computer: Internet Explorer 8, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera. I am trying to listen to some MP3 files on a website, and all of the browsers, except for IE 8, told me to download the Realplayer Plugin. So I did, and when I tried to listen to the MP3 file, Realplayer will automatically enable this "Autoupdate Helper" thing and check for updates. So I let it check for updates, but then it'll say "There are no updates..." and just stop there. The file won't play! I click play again, and the same thing happens.

Internet Explorer is the only browser smart enough to open the MP3 files on the web page using Quicktime (the website actually tells you to use Quicktime to open the files) but it doesn't load the Youtube videos that are embedded on the site. There's a X on the top left corner of the section where the video is suppose to be.

Now I'm stuck! I want to view all the contents on one page with one browser! But none of the browsers will actually work properly!

So the main problem is:

1. The MP3 files won't load in Chrome, Firefox, and Opera using Quicktime.

Chrome is the only browser I use frequently, and the others are basically backup. IS THERE ANY SOLUTION TO THIS!?!?!?

Thanks everyone!

Hi guys and gals,

New to this forum, so I hope it the right place for and way of explaining this problem.

I just bought my first PC, which is pretty awesome after having worked on laptops for years.
Here is the configuration:
- i7 4790K
- MSI Z97 Gaming 5
- MSI GTX 980
- Corsair Vengeance Pro Red 16GB 1600 MHz CL9
- Corsair RM750
- Samsung 850 Pro 256GB SSD

This is also my first system with Windows 8.

Now here is the problem:
After installing my favorite browser Firefox, for some reason it won't load google.com properly.
It automatically tries to load the https version of google, which makes sense.
But it gives my the "Untrusted connection error" (but then in Dutch, so I hope it is correctly translated).
When I delete the "s" and try http it loads fine, but then my search results are different from my laptop with Windows 7 and only the categories "Web" and "Images" are shown.
The same happens in Internet Explorer.

I have tried the solutions as described on the Mozilla support pages, but without any luck.

I hope someone on this forum can help me out.

Thanks in advance and best regards,


A:google.com not loading with https, Firefox and IE

Source--------- http://www.ghacks.net/2014/10/31/avasts-https-scanning-interferes-with-firefox-and-other-programs/
Avast released its 2015 lineup recently and one of the new features that all of its antivirus programs ship with is HTTPS Scanning.

It enables the program to detect and decrypt protected traffic using its web filtering component. This alone is highly problematic considering that the program is tapping right into protected data streams but the current implementation is causing all kinds of issues on top of that.

Firefox users for example may notice that the browser won't close anymore because of Avast's HTTPS Scanning feature. This may not happen all the time when Firefox is closed but users reported that it is happening frequently.

That's however not the only issue that Firefox users may experience if Avast is installed on the computer system the browser is running on.

Firefox's add-on update check may be blocked by the security software as well.

The Mozilla Firefox web browser is not the only program that is affected by issues though. Spotify's Web Player may not be able to connect to Spotify for example with Avast 2015 running on the system.

That is OK with me as i do not like Avast anyway.

My browsers, Explorer 7.0 and Firefox both doesn't connect to about half of the websites I tried.
The problem doesn't not occur in safe mode.
After looking around for solution, I found a case similar to mine, and the solution to it.
It was to open up msconfig, find dll files in startup panel that was created around the time this problem came about.
I located two of them in system32 folder with random names such as qnxteln.dll.
I deleted them, replaced them with a txt file with read only.
After i rebooted, the problem seemed fixed until it returned.
After checking msconfig, I found that 2 more dll files had been created under different names.
I ran spybot but could not located the virus that was causing this reckage.
So i was just wondering if anyone had a similar problem and if so the cure for this.

Thanks in advance

I am running Windows XP SP3 on a dial-up internet connection.
A couple of months ago IE7 worked fine. I then moved house temporarily, and had access to a broadband connection. I could access the internet via this new connection, and could receive my emails fine (although could not sent via Outlook). Firefox worked fine, but IE7 would not connect "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" error message. I thought it may have something to do with my new internet connection so didn't worry too much about it, and just used Firefox. However now that I am back home, using my original internet connection IE7 still won't work. Also if I update Firefox to a new version that won't work either. I have removed IE7 tried IE6, but still no luck. I have tried the "Diagnose Connection Problem", and and have also reset the default settings on IE7, but doesn't fix the problem. Any ideas about what else could I could try?

Hi all;

I have an odd issue with Firefox & Windows 10, with accessing HTTPS websites.
The sites are very very slow to load and others do not complete the load cycle.
I've had this issue for months now.

Just tried the newly released Firefox v50 ... same issues.
Also use Portable-Firefox:
-On the Windows 10 pc = https sites load very slow.
-If I move to my other PC (using Vista), all sites load fine. Without any changes to my Portable-Firefox setup.

When I use Microsoft's Edge browser all sites load fine.

There seems to be a conflict between the Toshiba Laptop, Windows 10 & Firefox in loading HTTPS websites very slowly.

This is what I have tried so far in relation to Windows 10:

-Changed Proxy settings (within Firefox) to each setting
-Flushed DNS cache
-Checked HOSTS file for any entries to those websites
-Removed entries from Windows Firewall
-Disabled Firewall and Anti-Virus
-Checked for Malware,Spyware,etc,etc
-Booted into Windows 10 SafeMode-Network Enabled
My head is getting sore now. Any suggestions

As I mentioned my Portable-Firefox installation works fine on other pcs, including Windows 10 versions, but not on this system (Toshiba laptop & Windows 10). Though MS Edge browser works perfectly fine.
Some of the https sites:

https://au.yahoo.com/?p=us ((loads very slow, with some pics & videos not loading at all. even news articles not loading at all))

Let me start by saying that lately my bank website, Norton Safesearch and even your website appear to have replaced their secure certificates with outdated or insufficient security. Usually in these cases the https in the address bar is crossed out or has a yellow          ! triangle. If you click on that triangle or crossed out space you will see a grey box that says "your connection to this site is not private". My connection is a private home network as opposed to public. It used to say "you have not visited this site before today" but that phrase is no longer there. Of course I've gone to these sites before. In the grey box there is a tab titled 'connections'. Click on that and it says '! The identity of this website has not been verified' and '! Your connection to www.xxxxxxx.com is not encrypted'. These sites normally have the green bar in the address bar indicating a secure connection. Clicking on the green bar will give you the same grey box, only this time it says "Your connection to this site is private" and it will tell you 'the identity of this site has been verified by [name of certificate]. Valid Certificate Transparency supplied by the server'. It will say 'your connection is encrypted using an obsolete cipher suite, or [...encrypted using a modern cipher suite]. Both are followed by specific connection and encryption information, i.e. TLS 1.2.

A:Problems connecting to websites

Hey guys. Not sure where to start. This problem poped up just recently. Only thing new to me is I have an iPdad and an Apple TV.

So when I try to log onto anything, it just takes 10 seconds or more. Clicking onto this Web Browsing subsection must have took 5 attempts atleast. Clicking onto my hotmail takes like 20 seconds to finally get in. Clicking onto any thread, any link, pretty much anything, is now a Major chore.

So I called the cable company and checked my connection, I am getting an average of 16mbps and .86mbps No problem there. They said it may be a browser issue so I reset that. It worked better for like a half hour then back to the same slow slow slow connecting. Also any of my devices using the WiFi now also suffer from the same slowness problem such as my iPad and my iPhone.

I dunno guys I suck at computers and was wondering if any of you could shed any light on my sad dilema?

Any and all assistance is always appreciated. Thanks.

Within the past ten days, I've been experiencing trouble with Internet Explorer connecting to webpages. The browser takes an unusually long time to connect if it can connect at all. If it doesn't connect, I get a "Page cannot be displayed" indication. If I refresh the "Page cannot be displayed," the browser will usually connect, but not always.

I was running IE11, but in my troubleshooting I downgraded to IE10. After I removed IE11, I noticed the same connection issues with IE 8. I then upgraded to IE10, but the issue continues.

A few days ago, I suspected my NVIDIA graphics drivers/software as the cause of this issue. I completely removed the drivers and software and reinstalled and consulted with NVIDIA tech support. NVIDIA tech support suggested changing IE Advanced Settings for Accelerated Graphics to use software rendering as opposed to hardware rendering. I don't think that the graphics drivers are causing the problem.

I also suspected my Internet Security software, ESET Smart Security 7. I checked the personal firewall settings, but I don't see anything that looks unusual.

Okay so... For some reason, after fiddling with port forwarding in my router certain websites stopped being responsive. downforeveryoneorjustme.com tells me they are up and running. I can also ping them both by IP and name fine, but I cannot access them on any browser. Using proxies makes the pages viewable, suggesting DNS might be the problem, but pinging with domain name still works fine which is weird. Resetting my router happens to enable/disable some of those sites from the list at random. I tried accessing the same site through the same network with different devices with varying results. Both desktop and laptop are unable to reach the website, but using the wifi through my phone works, so I can't even say if it's router-related or not.

I've tried; changing both router and computer DNS, flushing DNS cache, fixing winsock, putting router to factory defaults, changing MTU size...

Please, can someone help? I have a second computer which, for old-gaming reasons, I keep as Windows 98. I occasionally want to go online, but it's mostly offline. When I go online (ADSL), I merely unplug my primary PC connection at the phoneline and replace with my Win 98 PC modem line. The connection is working well with my primary PC, so it's not a line problem.

When I connect via my second PC, it connects to the internet fine, and I can connect to any websites, Google, Tech Support Guy, etc.. However, even though it remains connected (shows as being still connected in the TaskBar - bytes in and out, etc.), after around 4 minutes I can no longer load up/connect to ANY website at all and the loading bar just hangs until it eventually times-out. This happens every time and, each time the only way to get it back is to boot the PC. Disconnecting from the internet and reconnecting doesn't do it.

I managed to download a new version of Ad-Aware SE personal ONLY by using Getright to download it in two separate connection sessions as I lost the website connection half way through, but, with Getright, was able to RESUME. I've run SpyBot Search & Destroy and it found nothing significant (just one tracking thingy - TagASaurus). Ad-Aware found nothing.
