ActivityMonitoring malware?

Post by Wingnut on Mon 05 Oct 2015, 11:41 am

First topic message reminder :

I was asked by SuperDave to start this here, to see if I had malware, or something in my PC. It keeps trying to install "ActivityMonitor" software into my PC, but I didn't ask for it, and I don't know if I need it. It starts the install many times a day. It started after I installed FireFox browser into my Dell with XP. It was really slow before I installed it, but worked great after installing it, but it is back to really slow, and gives me "Not responding" most all the time, again.
SuperDave asked me to post a screen shot of "ActivityMonitor " install, or stop installing window. I tried, I can get the site to host it, but it won't up load the picture to here.

Thanks, Pat

One thing that I have been getting lately is a box that opens, it say's.

"Unresponsive Script"
A script on the page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding.
Then I need to check one of these box's
"Continue", "Debug Script", "Stop Script"
I get that every time I start my laptop. I select Stop script and it cures the problem. Here's one suggestion to cure that problem.

I have been finding that I wait a long time to open web sites. It will do noting, then it will start to open them in steps. It does more stopping and going, then will finally fill in the page, then just working right. It locks up often, to the point that I shut it off, and restart it, or just leave and come back in awhile, and it's finally done doing what ever I had asked it to do.
Some days, it will rearrange some of my icon's on the desk top.

Then some times it works good, but mostly not.

I'm toying with the idea of doing a System Recovery on my laptop. Somedays it works fine and other days not so fine.
