Amazingly my firefox has evidently been hijacked. I am writing this from my seamonkey browswer. In fact, various things on my computer haven't been functioning well lately.
Anyway, my firefox is oftentimes directed to some commercial site like coupon mountain, and other ad sites like maybe family circle or elle or such. I've tried engaging malware programs such as spybot, malwarebytes, hijackthis, and maybe a couple of others. The taskmanager says that spybot is running but no interface ever shows. I tried reinstalling it as well. The hijack this and malwarebytes download exe programs downloaded but the only thing that happens when i double click on them is an hourglass shows for several seconds. I made a new firefox profile which doesn't help at all. When I do a google search for something to try to fix things it often doesn't display the search or redirects to an ad site that is unrelated to the link i clicked on in the google search.
This is creepy since i thought firefox was a really secure browser. I have installed some of the addons but i thought those were secure as well.
Let me know if you can help, although you would have to tell me how to get hijackthis running first if you need one of those logs.
Thanks in advance!
