This file persistently comes back. "Rogue Killer" lists it under browser Question: Is this legitimate? if not......How do we stop it from returning. We have to constantly uninstall firefox and reinstall it to keep firefox working properly.

Thanks

hi, unfortunately i have no idea of the inner workings of "Rogue Killer" and what the "USER" part should signify. the string "jbo08l1f.default" probably refers to your firefox profile though: Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data
