Strange behavior on Firefox and Thunderbird

Unread postby henkomannen » November 28th, 2005, 4:26 am


after a while when surfing with Firefox links that is to be opened in new windows won't do so, the ctrl commands (like copying url's from the address field) and navigating with arrow keys in text areas stop working.

Yesterday I also noticed that Thunderbird is starting to behave strange. It takes forever to display the already received emails after startup and I also noticed that the buttons (like reply all) stopped responding to my actions.

This could be a faulty behavior caused by a malware previously removed with the help of you a couple of months ago. The topic has though been archived.

I have followed your instructions so far and here's my hijackthis log:

Hello henkomannen.

I don't see anything bad in your HJT log. You can try this and see if it helps.

1. Open My Computer
2. Right click on your hard drive that you wish to clean (C drive, for example)
3. In the context menu that opens, select properties
4. Under the general tab you should select Disk Cleanup
5. Windows will scan your drive which will take a few seconds/minutes
6. A box will display the various files you can remove.
Check all boxes except compress old files (If listed)
7. Click OK and windows will comply.

Restart your computer.

Reboot and "copy/paste" a new log file into this thread.
Also please describe how your computer behaves at the moment.
