Unread postby pokeoutyoureardrums » March 27th, 2011, 7:43 am

My browser suddenly started sprouting pop ups anytime i navigate, consistently. They report a 404 jar error. ran hijack, not sure what on this list, if anything, is causing the issue. The error message in the pop ups is "Firefox can't find the file at jar:file:///C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/chrome/browser.jar!/content/browser/cannot select DB."

You have replied to your own topic, and as a result we must close this topic.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read before posting for help.

THIS is the section that tells you why you should not reply to your own topic.

This topic will now be closed

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Malware Removal forum, post the logs asked for in the first topic I linked to and wait for assistance.
