Q: Solved: While running firefox I get IE popups, it also opens tabs in my Firefox.

I don't know what to do I'm out of resources. I tried multiple solutions including running ad-aware in safe mode no dice. I also tried a solution you gave to pabs which included BFU ,Alcra Plus Remover, ATF Cleaner, and AVG spyware no dice as well. This darn thing specially likes to pop up on the initial start up of Firefox and every couple clicks please help. Here is my HJT log

Preferred Solution: Solved: While running firefox I get IE popups, it also opens tabs in my Firefox.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I don't know if these are related, which is why I'm posting this in the same thread and I honestly don't know what to do.
 
I have a pretty good feeling this is malicious since the ads starting showing up at the bottom of every webpage and look the same. The ad says "Brought to you by ...".
 
Each day around 7am I get a popup window on my desktop that tells me that I need to update Flash, yet I've already downloaded and installed Flash from the adobe website and verified that it is up to date. So I close the reminder since I don't know if it is a virus or not.
 
I scanned using hijackthis so I could have a log handy if needed. However when I ran it, there was a warning window that said:
 
For some reason your system denied write access to the Hosts file. If any hijacked domains are in this file, HijackThis may NOT be able to fix this.
 
If that happens, you need to edit the file yourself. To do this, click Start, Run and type:
 
   notepad C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
 
and press Enter. Find the line(s) HijackThis reports and delete them. Save the file as 'hosts.' (with quotes), and reboot.
 
For Vista and above: simply, exit HijackThis, right click on the HijackThis icon, choose 'Run as administrator'.
 

 

 
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Got something WRONG with my browsers. My computer, Dell 2400 w/Intel 2.4ghz, 1.5ghz RAM, WinXP Home SP3 works excellent and all programs run as they should. The problem is when I enable my LAN and connect to the Internet. When I first open my FireFox 3.6.8 it goes to my Home Page as it should. As long as I'm working on my Home Page everything works well. I can read all the articles on that page (Yahoo.com) and all is well. But, when I open a new tab and try to go to some site on that new tab, some MalWare opens a new FireFox browser and starts opening new tabs at an accelerated speed. It only takes a minute or less and the top of this new and 2nd FireFox is completely loaded with tabs, each displaying a different internet site. Well, all these tabs being opened at once causes my AVG 2011 to go bizerk! AVG uses 100% of my CPU trying to keep up with all the tabs being opened. After several minutes, I try to close that FireFox and FireFox warns me about closing multiple tabs....221 tabs to be exact. I got this MalWare from Google search engine by connecting to a medical site that Google had marked "SAFE". It took only seconds for AVG to open a window showing that it had found a virus "Win32/Cryptor" and had quarantined it in the Virus Vault and then a minute or so later it found another Malware "Win32.Arto.cbb" and quarantined it also. So, I disconnected from the side and in a few seconds, my ZoneAlarm asked for permission to connect a program ... Read more

A:Firefox opens unknown tabs

Hi there,my name is Marius and I will assist you with your malware related problems.Before we move on, please read the following points carefully. First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding. Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one. If you have any problems while following my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem. Do not run any other scans without instruction or add/remove software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me. Post all logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts. If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed. Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean. My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.    Multiple Antivirus Programs installed!I do not recommend that you have more than one anti-virus product installed and running on your computer at a time.The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, then those products...

This is a weird case, and I'm pretty sure it's not attributed to a virus.Basically, I was playing full screen Starcraft whilst Firefox was running with multiple tabs open in the background. I alt-tabbed from the game to Firefox, and right clicked my taskbar and closed the game. As soon as I did this, a tab opened to Adtechus. (A legitimate AD company from what I can tell). I had a look on the website that was open when I alt tabbed before the new tab to Adtech opened and one of the ads on it had an Adtechus URL. The thing that perplexes me is that, my mouse didn't go near it, and so I couldnt have clicked it.After this, a short while later, I re-opened the game, alt tabbed and before I could close it, another tab opened automatically from a site I was on before with a Facebook box implemented into it, and for some reason the new tab contained the Facebook "like" box seperate from everything else. SEE HERE: http://www.facebook.com/plugins/likebox.ph...mp;header=falseFull website with the box to the left, here: http://www.gonintendo.com/I can recreate this by right clicking the Facebook box on this specific website and choosing "This Frame > Open Frame in New Tab". But the thing is, I never did this in the first place! Plus, the website was already closed 20 seconds previously before this new tab popped up. Then, automatically, another Adtechus tab popped up shortly after!I am quite sure I have not got any viruses as I have a multi lay... Read more

Ive tried everything, run every scanner i could find, there are no processes that shouldnt be there in task manager. Nothing in startup or in services of MSCONFIG. Im stumped. Every couple minutes a new tab will open in firefox(Or if Ff is not open then it will open) With and address that will have a website and then end "normal/yyy102.html"

For example

http://www.bigdiscountbuy.com/normal/yyy102.html

Where "http://www.bigdiscountbuy.com/" will change for other websites

Weird thing is the tab will just be Blank, nothing in there.
I had installed a something which gave m,e some spyware, but this was removed with Ad-aware, spybot, and webroot spysweeper. But this still clings on..

A:Ad-ware opens tabs in Firefox

I see you have disabled some startuo items with Msconfig. Please open it and select normal startup. I need to see everything that is running on your PC to help you clean it out, you may return it to the way it was when we are finished.

You have the latest version of VX2. Download L2mfix from one of these two locations:

http://www.atribune.org/downloads/l2mfix.exe
http://www.downloads.subratam.org/l2mfix.exe

Save the file to your desktop and double click l2mfix.exe. Click the Install button to extract the files and follow the prompts, then open the newly added l2mfix folder on your desktop. Double click l2mfix.bat and select option #1 for Run Find Log by typing 1 and then pressing enter. This will scan your computer and it may appear nothing is happening, then, after a minute or 2, notepad will open with a log. Copy the contents of that log and paste it into this thread.

Close any programs you have open since this step requires a reboot.

Hello there!

Firefox is opening new tabs, usually on crass and annoying sales sites, relating to search terms I've recently used in Google or the website I've just been looking at. It also sometimes takes me from Google searches to the wrong URL, again usually some site trying to sell me something related to the search. If I close Firefox and reopen it, and do the same search it will usually then take me to the right place.

I have run scans with Malwarebytes, Ad-Aware, Spybot and AVG, all of which came up clean. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. Google Chrome will not install on my PC, though this may be unrelated. Windows Update will not run on my PC, though again maybe unrelated. I do not use Internet Explorer if I can possibly help it. Any help greatly appreciated! Many thanks, OB.

EDIT: I have just tried Firefox in Safe Mode, disabled all add-ons, and then went to Google and searched "Second Hand Cars". First five or six links I clicked on went to wrong URL. So it's not a FF addon!

I use version 3.5.1 When I open firefox it opens with multiple tabs.I tried to find the answer in the FF helpcentre however it's rather confusing for me. I looked at the answer for this problem "preferences not saved" and followed the steps in order to resolve the issue and have been looking to the prefs.js files in the profile folder but none exist Help indicates that those files may be duplicated or corrupted. Also the help centre indicates that if those files are corrupted the preferences are not being saved.I am sure that is the issue but I cannot resolve it.I reinstalled FF several times but the result is the same. Is here a FF user that is able to help in simple words.
I disabled all addons but no result.

Hi,

While I think I have temporarily stopped this problem, by blocking redirects in Firefox, I think there is still a malware/trojan on the system, which may cause other problems, so I?d appreciate help from a pro. Many thanks in advance.

Every five of so minutes firefox would open a new Window with 11 tabs 3 or four of them were Index of the folder where firefox is stored, another one is xn-eba.com and the others are page could not be loaded with addresses with lots of odd symbols, but always including the xn- characters. I can just close it but I notice in the Cookies section that a cookie is added each time there is the redirect that I have removed.

I have ran Malwarebytes and spybot search and destroy (which found three problems that I cleaned the first run and none the second) as well as the antivirus (avira). I?ve also cleaned out the temporary files and temporary internet files.

Thanks again,
Chris.

Hi,

I recently had a virus/rootkit or some type of malware installed on my computer. Basically because I accidentally clicked yes to one of those "you're computer is infected" links. I ran Malwarebytes and AD-Aware before hand and I thought I got rid of everything, unfortunately I did not as Firefox still opens random tabs.

I read the first steps, my logs are attached below. Unfortunately I do not have a Windows Install CD, I think it's forever lost somewhere.

I read the previous posts similar to mine but was not able to figure out what exactly to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I launch Firefox, and almost immediately am interrupted by ten or so new tabs unexpectedly opening, with paid-for ad sites like news7daily.tv, and a few raunchy sites. Later I get random redirects, too, after closing all the tabs.

Last week I installed and ran malwarebytes' anti-malware software, because I was seeing similar unwanted behavior (redirects, pop-ups, continually checking "allow third party cookies".) I killed a couple processes (xxx.exe) and deleted a program whose name I have forgotten, but which another discussion forum identified as malicious. I thought it was fixed, but the issues cropped back up after a few days. I did not have Windows firewall on, I discovered today, which is unfortunate, as it might have saved me a lot of trouble.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I'm getting random pop-up advertisements for a program called "Registry Defender" which I know for sure is a virus, and several other programs.

I have already scanned my computer with Avast and Malwarebytes and they don't detect any malware. How can I get rid of this virus?

A:Spyware problem: Firefox opens up random tabs

Depending of what your configuration is, the choices may vary, but I would recommend booting up with a LiveCD (i.e. not with your native OS), then scan your hard drive with a few of the online scanners - nowadays most major antivirus vendors offer free online scans. If your LiveCD contains some antivirus software, use that as well.

After that, you could go manually through your Program Files, with the LiveCD nothing will be hidden (or at least you can easily show hidden stuff) and find any file that may have a reference to the "Registry Defender" or any other program that bothers you. Just make sure to erase all instances of them, including from prefetch folders.

If everything fails and you have no earlier restore point to fall back to, there is always an option to re-install the OS, although personally I've never done that in a situation like that - it seems to drastic a move to me.

Hello,
 
I recently removed 2 instances of recurring malware ( I removed it and the following day it was back again, removed it again and it came back again) and an instance of recurring spyware off of my Windows 7 pro 64 bit PC with Spybot before removing an additional  piece of malware with Norton Internet Security. I ran a full scan with McCafee before this but it didn't detect anything (Mcafee did find something with its real time protection everytime I tried to remove and resinstall Firefox) that Spybot hadnt found already, so I decided to run some free scans from other antivirus platforms from the internet. Norton found some things so I switched over to Norton. I also ran Microsoft Safety Scanner and Norton Power Eraser neither of which found anything.
 
I am continuing to get popups and when i click on links in Firefox I continue to get multiple windows and tabs opening. I am running the most current version of Firefox from the Mozilla website. This makes me think that I might still be infected.
 
I'm sorry I did not record the names of the malware that were giving me problems. If they come up again I will post them.

A:Firefox opens multiple windows/tabs after malware removal

 Get the free version of Malwarebytes, get it up to date, then boot to Safe Mode and do a full system scan with it and your antivirus.  This could run for a couple of hours.
 
 As for the multiple tabs, just get the ones you want, then press ALT-t and click Options -> Use current pages.
 
Good luck.

Internet explorer won't stop opening tabs unless I end the process.
Also the internet settings for IE keep changing to accept all cookies and I don't use IE ever.
While surfing the internet Firefox opens a new window to random websites or ads and sometimes blank pages with a changing url similar to these two:
(Urls are really long so I'll only post part of it)

Hi guys, how are you? My laptop is having an issue in Firefox. While using Google's RSS Reader to read my feeds, I get randomly open new tabs that have various different links but are completely blank or have very weird scroll bars inside.

I ran the following in plain safe mode with newest updates: Spybot (clean), Malware full scan (clean), Norton Internet Security full scan (clean) & TSSDKiller (found one threat, rescan was clean).

Should I follow this thread (www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic462907.html/page__p__2790786__hl__firefox+random+tab__fromsearch__1#entry2790786) or post my own logs? Thanks

All of a sudden I can no longer open or close new tabs using the middle mouse click (clicking the scroll wheel) it doesn work in ie or in firefox. Also seems like it doesn't work on the desktop or any other application. I have'nt installed new updates or new programs, I don't have any "mouse software" like intellipoint. This affects both my wireless keyboard with built in trackball and a serperate wireless scrollmouse. The only think I can think of is that a few days ago I changed the the speed of my cursor.. of course this shouldn't have affected anything else.... but it is really annoying as I mostly use my computer for web browsing and always open links in new tabs...

You have multiple infections on your system. We will take this in steps.

You have the latest version of VX2. Download L2mfix from one of these two locations:

http://www.atribune.org/downloads/l2mfix.exe
http://www.downloads.subratam.org/l2mfix.exe

Click "Install" to extract the contents to a newly created folder.

Close any programs you have open since this step requires a reboot.From the l2mfix folder, double click l2mfix.bat
Select option #2 for Run Fix by typing 2 and then pressing enter.
Your desktop and icons will disappear as L2mfix scans/disinfects your computer.
When finished, you will be required to press any key to automatically reboot.
On the reboot notepad will open with a log. Copy/paste the contents of that log back into this thread, along with a new hijackthis log.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT run any other files in the l2mfix folder unless you are asked to do so!

If after the reboot the log does not open double click on it in the l2mfix folder to locate log.txt.

If you receive an error - \system32\Autoexec.nt is not suitable for running MS-Dos applications, you will need to visit this website to download additional files.

Download fl.zip
Extract the contents to a new folder on Desktop.
Within the folder, locate & double-click fl.bat.
It should produce a report at c:\findlop.txt. Post the contents of the report in your next reply

Hi,A couple days ago I got a virus or something that would pop up a fake Windows AntiSpyware (don't remember exact name) program. I was finally able to get rid of it using AVG and MalwareByte's Anti-Malware.Now Firefox will open up random tabs on it's on (don't have to click on anything) and when I click on links sometimes it will redirect me for like 5 clicks of the link and then after that allow me to go to the site and then it will repeat this action maybe 10 minutes later.It also will not let me go to the microsoft update site (in IE and Firefox), and when I search w i n d o w s u p d a t e . m i c r o s o f t (without the spaces) in google or any text field that I submit (tried it in a forum) (in IE or Firefox) it will just bring up a page that says connection was reset or page failed to load.

Ok so i've noticed that firefox randomly will open ad pages in new tabs and redirect my google searches.

I have run complete scans with superantisypware, avira, spybot, malwarebytes, iobit security 360 and inbuilt windows malware scanner. Some of which came up with detections which i got rid yet the problem remains. I tried to restore my comp but it failed, obviously one of the malwares clever tricks.

Here is my DDS log. The attach.txt file is attached but i could not get the GMER rootkit scanner to work. It would complete the scan but as soon as i tried to save it it would give a blue screen and restart...not good i would say. So hence i dont have an ark.txt.

Really starting to worry. I read that these things are usually to direct internet traffic to specific sites to increase ad revenue for the malware people. I havn't done any internet banking cos i am not that foolish but is there much of a chance they will get control of my gmail or facebook accounts? How paranoid should i be in terms of infections spreading to other networked computers and external hard drives?

Over the past week, there have been occasions when I'm in Firefox and when I type, no text appears. Instead the tabs at the top of the Firefox page (i.e. File, Edit, View, History) are selected. It seems that I need to close down all Firefox windows and reopen to get rid of the problem. But the fix is only temporary. It comes back a few days later. I'm not sure what the cause is. I've followed the steps on the "Read this first" section. Then I went through the steps in the Prep Guide. When I run rootrepeal, the scan seems to stop at c:/windows/winsxs/manifests. Of the files that seem to have been scanned in rootrepeal up until the manifests part, they all say "locked to the windows api!" in the status section. Since I can't get further, I'm attaching my dds and attach logs below. Would love to hear if I am doing something wrong. Thanks!!

I ran Malwarebytes awhile back(I've been in and out of town for a couple weeks) and it found some Vendu trojan stuff that it got rid of, but can't find any issues now even though the problem exists. I've also ran spybot a few times but nothing is showing up malware wise anymore. I tried running gmer but the scan took a day and a half to run and when it was done and I tried to save the file it froze my computer completely.

Hello!

Many thanks in advance for your assistance! Through some inadvertent clicking I was attacked by "Antispyware Master" a rogue antispyware program. I have deleted all the files I could find, as well as some registry entries associated with the program as suggested by another website, before I found you guys. Additionally I have ended the associated process to it and it is no longer bothering. It has not shown up after several restarts. However, I am still receiving numerous malicious popups in IE. Firefox is also not running well. I am able to click through to maybe two websites before it will completely hang up and say "waiting for xyz website". Furthermore, I am sporadically getting a windows explorer buffer underrun error that informs me that it is no longer able to continue executing and must close. It will do this periodically and the machine usually continues to operate relatively normally. Occasionally however, it will actually shut down explorer and the taskbar and desktop icons will all disappear. I am able to continue working in the windows that remain open however, but a restart is required to get explorer back.

Also, I have run scans with adaware, and spybot several times to clean the system, and have not had any new significant results recently to show improvement. I have run a couple of scans with Norton and it also comes back clean. However, sometimes after a popup window opens Norton will open an alert saying it found a virus in ... Read more

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems. I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At...

Hello, I'm having an issue when browsing the web via Firefox. Every now and then I'm getting an extremely suspicious new tab that I have to click a box that says "Leave Page." This has started since I appear to have "fixed" the google redirect virus. By that I mean I am no longer being redirected on google web searches. Spybot is detecting a Trojan named Smitfraud-C.generic that keeps returning time and time again. I am also concerned that when I tried to turn on my Windows Firewall as requested, I get an Error code 0x80070424, and have absolutely no idea if this is the result of a virus or not. Thank you in advance for any help.

Directed here from: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic437929.htmlHad both Avira and Zone Alarm block some programs, I think when I tried to go to a website yesterday (although possibly a coincidence, as I suspected something was going on before). I immediately updated and ran Malware Bytes quick scan, which found and removed a number of files, then restarted. Then tried to update Avira and run a full scan. Avira won't update (last update 1/4/2012), but went ahead and ran a full scan. Avira found and repaired a number of files (most false positives, I think), but also gave some notice about a hidden file (ping.exe) that it couldn't do anything about. I restarted and ran both programs again, MBAM found nothing and Avira found a single file which was removed.However, the computer still seems to be behaving oddly. After restarting, the computer runs very sluggishly. Looking in task manager, svchost.exe runs at 99% and the computer is pretty much unusable unless I force this process to end. It seems that this particular instance of svchost.exe restarts itself after a minute or two and periodically causes the PC to slow way down again. The taskbar also changes graphically, almost to an older windows style, possibly when the process restarts. Hard to tell as there are quite a few svchost.exe's running.Pretty sure I have an infection of some sort as a random tab opened on its own in Firefox last time I started it.

I was just curious if anybody has been receiving the same error message:


"Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system."


I have been getting this on my laptop for a few weeks now, off and on, when I close Mozilla Firefox for whatever reason and try to reopen it immediately after. Usually, after receiving the error message I just wait a few seconds and try again and the browser opens just fine.

However, I now just found out that my cousin has been dealing with the same problem, only worse, when he uses his laptop at home. (different locations, different networks, different brands of laptop.) I witnessed first-hand that he had the same error message, only his did not go away, nor could we get his browser to open. He says this happens to him every time he closes Firefox and tries to reload.

We resolved this issue by opening the task manager and manually ending Mozilla under processes, not applications, since it was not on the applications list, but was on the processes list.

Tell me if you have been experiencing the same or similar issues with Mozilla Firefox. I am curious, because this is the only problem I have ever had with Firefox, other than the occasional browser crash.

Thanks,

.Chris
