Help: Facebook phishing site? Opens tons of tabs on start up

Unread postby ckal9 » May 20th, 2013, 12:09 pm

Hey everyone, I'm hoping I can get some help because I cannot get this resolved after trying many things.

Just yesterday I noticed that when I wake my computer up from sleep mode, or just restart or boot up my computer, my google chrome opens 10-20 tabs attempting to reach Facebook links. Here are a couple examples:


htt ps://fbcdn-photos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hpho ... ?529354585

ht tps://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hp ... ?509812954

I have run malware bytes and norton anti virus to no avail, I have cleared cookies, changed Facebook passwords, rolled back my computer a day, and went to msconfig and disabled a facebook updater on start up.

I really have no idea what to do, and google searches bring back nothing. I saw one other post on the mozilla firefox support forums with the problem I have, but the answer was just go to a spyware or malware forum for help.

Please help. Thank you.
