The Secret to Free Live Cams

Post by TheBlackScepter on Sun 01 Sep 2013, 3:33 am

First topic message reminder :

For the past few days, my Firefox will randomly open a page titled "The Secret to Free Live Cams" without me clicking any link. I can close the tab, and it doesn't always happen, but I ran a Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and it did come up with a few trojans, I'll post that log down below. Even though I removed them, it continues to redirect to this page. Is there anything I can do to get rid of this?

I don't know if this will help, but I noted in my History that right before the redirect there was something called 7.rotator.widgetmedia.com, I don't know if that helps or not.

Here is the log from the scan I mentioned:

Please try Internet Explorer and see if you are getting the re-directs.

In that case your problem is with FireFox. It could be an add-on. disable all of them and see if that makes any difference. If not, try uninstalling and re-installing FF.

I have reinstalled Firefox and it seems to have worked, I have not had any redirects since.

Click Start> Computer> right click the C Drive and choose Properties> enter
Click Disk Cleanup from there.



Click OK on the Disk Cleanup Screen.
Click Yes on the Confirmation screen.



This runs the Disk Cleanup utility along with other selections if you have chosen any. (if you had a lot System Restore points, you will see a significant change in the free space in C drive)
