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 :: http://o.aolcdn.com/dojo/1.3.1/dojo/dojo.xd.js :: 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 justintv.com/ 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!

www.malwarebytes.org has a good free program, too. Best of all is spyware doctor, which I pay for, but it's excellent; however, Karlswldt is right, too. You've got a hijacker, probably. Worst case scenario, you have to reformat.
