Firefox and Explorer not loading pages - Error message...

Postby dpnaugle » Thu Oct 15, 2009 10:08 pm

A couple fo strange things happened yesterday.

First, AVG spontaneously started warning that my bookmarked JustinTV link was malicious, and warned me not to view the page. I ignored the warning logged on as I have done thousands of times. This warning came up every time there after for JustinTV, but I worked around it.l

Second, after last nights Windows update I woke up to both my Firefox and Explorer browsers are not loading pages. 50% of the time neither browser can find the server, and has to be refreshed several times to load any page. This Error message just popped up a minute ago while I was refreshing a page.

JSON: Error: Deferred Cancelled: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIXMLHttpRequest.send]" nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: :: anonymous :: line 16" data: no]

Something funny is going on. Any advice?

Time to do a malware scan with AdAware and HijackThis. The failure of your browsers to open Web pages now may be due to a virus or Trojan.
Likely the site was "hit" and you are getting tattle or tracking cookies to unsavory sites. Noted from a Google search that is up for sale. Other links report the site has unfiltered "public" input of clips and video. But no telling what other data may be riding on those bits!
