my websites are getting jacked

Posted

My websites like the one listed here are constantly getting jacked by some crap cnet surveys or other b.s. IT IS HAPPENING ALL THE TIME since I downloaded the latest firefox. I am very disgusted. This has been going on for friggin months, and I have been patiently waiting for an update that would fix it. I'm not one to complain. I have literally tried a dozen friggin times to read this news story, and can't do it because the page gets jacked. Popups are continuous also. What's happened to Firefox? It's bad when I say I'd rather use explorer, yes?

Hello Dawn.

Is this happening on all browsers or just Firefox? If it's just Firefox, you may be having a problem with some extension or plugin that is hindering your Firefox's normal behavior. Have you tried disabling all add-ons (just to check), to see if Firefox goes back to normal?

Do a malware check with a few malware scan programs. You need to use all programs because each detects different malware. Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database.
