Serious Firefox Infection

Recommended Posts

I have been a dedicated user of Malwarebytes and user of Mozilla Firefox. The last couple of weeks I have picked up a virus that seems to infect Firefox and will redirect all Google searches to sites that download serious malware onto the computer. Even something as simple as clicking on a link to wikipedia will lead me to a malware site. Some of these downloads are incredibly nasty. These in themselves are sortable and able to be picked up but I need to get rid of what it is that is attached to Firefox as it is not registering of being picked up by Malwarebytes.

I am not a big tech, just a casual user. Can someone help me get rid of this problem? Or better still can Malwarebytes add something to their identification library that will pick up this Firefox bug and delete it. Please don't force me to have to go back and use IE Explorer.

Hello goatlover, and welcome to the forums here at Malwarebytes.org :)

Please read the following so that you can begin the cleaning process:

We don't work on Malware removal in the general forums.

Please read and follow the directions here, skipping any steps you are unable to complete. Then post a NEW topic here.

One of the expert helpers there will give you one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.

Please note that it may take 48 hours or more for you to receive a response in the malware removal forum, as it is often busy at times. Please do not reply to your own post asking for help unless its been more than 48 hours since you originally posted, as this can make it appear as though you are being helped and take longer for you to get help.

If you are unable to do all or any of the steps in the link to the directions above, just post your problem into the forum I gave you a link to anyway and someone will be able to assist you.

Also, when replying, please use the "ADD REPLY" button or erase what the person you are replying to said, as this makes the forum easier to read.

After posting your new post make sure under options that you select Track this topic and choose one of the Email options so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.

Thank you :)
