  1. Hi Kevin, I've done as suggested and deleted the 3 programs mentioned... Thanks for the advice! I've updated my Java to version 67 for both X86 and X64 versions. Hopefully everything else is sorted. All those steps completed ok. Many thanks for helping me fix this, and for the prompt response. I'm happy that I can get back to work tomorrow without delay.. Warm regards, Doug.

  3. Hi Kevin, The browser type lag seems to have stopped, so that's ok. The lag I was getting after I logged in to my computer is also much reduced. Malwarebytes is working again, and the firefox browser is no longer opening another page when I type www.yahoo.co.uk... So, seems everthing is ok.. I haven't had any crashes since either. I ran some more virus scans today, and nothing has been reported. Was my computer very badly infected? Kind regards, Doug.. P.S., thanks very much for your help!!

I believe that during this exercise (and although I use WOT), unfortunately, my computer maybe have become infected with a virus.

  13. Hi MrC I've looked through the search results. I don't recognize the registry entries and don't know what programs or files they refer to. I.e., HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext\Settings\{3CA2F312-6F6E-4B53-A66E-4E65E497C8C0} HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext\Stats\{3CA2F312-6F6E-4B53-A66E-4E65E497C8C0} & HKCU\Software\5a0d88fe768ea14 The files mentioned seem to be firefox profiles. I don't recognize anything related to my personal files. Regards Doug AdwCleanerR3.txt
