Does NetVideoHunter and Flash Video Downloader contain malware?

I've recently installed Malwarebytes, and each time I click on the Addon NetVideoHunter in Firefox it blocks an outgoing connection. Here's the report I get -

Blocked Website Details- Malicious Website: 1 Blocked,

-Website Data- Domain: www.adnetworkperformance. com IP Address: 130.211.186.109 Port: [50051] Type: Outbound File: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe


UnHackNe identifies NetVideoHunter as Malicious, so I've uninstalled it, performed a reset of FireFox and installed Flash Video Downloader. Unfortunately, that also seems to want to connect to a site whenever I click on it! Here's the report for that -

-Blocked Website Details- Malicious Website: 1 Blocked,

-Website Data- Domain: speednetwork6.adk2x. com IP Address: 130.211.54.133 Port: [51719] Type: Outbound File: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe


UnHackMe also reports that Flash Video Downloader is a malicious app, so I've uninstalled that as well.

I'm now using Flash and Video Download. That doesn't seem to want to connect to another website each time I use it, although UnHackMe seems to think that might be dodgy as well! lol.

I'm fairly certain that the report for Flash and Video Download is a false positive. However, as NetVideoHunter and Flash Video Downloader are trying to connect to another site each time they are used, that suggests that all is not well.

I only ever install Addons from the Mozzilla repository, so I'm a bit surprised that I'm getting these reports of malware. If an addon is trying to connect to adnetworkperformance. com, then it doesn't look like a false positive to me.

I'd welcome some advice on this. :)

Basically, firefox often will freeze/not respond and requires me to force a shut down just to keep it from freezing up my entire computer. I run lots of tabs every day and I use a session manager to help keep on top of them and keep them from getting lost. When my computer was new this was not an issue but in the past few months I've cut down my tabs(less than 80) to try and speed my computer up and it has not worked. In fact, it is actually worse now. Sometimes it even actually crashes and sends a report, but not actually as often as it freezes and needs a forced shut down. I just finished cleaning up my computer(antivirus, malware, CC cleaner, etc.) and it's still freezing up. In fact, I've had to restart firefox three times in the past twenty minutes just to get to the point where I can ask this question. It's very frustrating.

Here are the last ten crash reports: bp-b2d18586-752c-491e-b128-e1c382150719 7/19/2015 10:56 AM bp-7925764c-4906-4093-b643-851d92150719 7/19/2015 10:09 AM bp-72c5f28a-e863-4236-9a3a-36d012150719 7/18/2015 8:18 PM bp-f0d1a8ab-64f0-434b-8639-98ccb2150718 7/18/2015 5:51 PM bp-809a83fe-a0d3-4fea-8f5d-b88c22150718 7/18/2015 5:45 PM bp-8160bab0-efda-4ab1-ae21-2df4c2150718 7/18/2015 5:08 PM bp-0f24531a-012c-44ce-9189-008ae2150718 7/18/2015 11:07 AM bp-b9cedefd-8bdf-474d-8235-964382150716 7/16/2015 5:36 PM bp-12edfcd7-563b-4253-9279-079972150712 7/11/2015 7:29 PM bp-b0745415-ae41-45c3-a717-f57fd2150709

As you can see even the actual recorded crashes happen a lot. I'm not sure what other information to provide, just let me know and I'll get it for you.

My mozilla firefox browser keeps opening 3 new windows or 3 new tabs for facebook log in or sign up page about every 5 minutes. Is this malware/spyware, a virus or something else?

It just started in the last 3 to 4 days. I use facebook and play facebook games everyday and I use Stopzilla for malware/spyware and antivirus protection. I recently bought Reg Clean Pro to clean my registry and ran it. Could it have caused the problem?

I never trust, download or install anything related to Russia or China, I don't want those spies get control of my PC. After many years of using FF, I just found something that shocked me: Baidu Search Update Extension What's this installed with FF installation? Note: I never run Firefox.setup.exe but just extract it using winrar, from "core\browser" remove "features" folder completely then install it. Where can I remove it from install source? Anything related to those Chinese search engines?

EVERYTIME I open up Mozilla FireFox, my Norton Security Software pops up with a dialog box that says, it has blocked "Web Attack: Fake Tech Support Website 62". This has been going on for about a 3 days now. Is there anything you can do to your FireWall and Other Security Software from allowing this Virus from trying to attack Mozilla FireFox? Please advise.

I had a malware infection recently, but I've cleared most of it out. The only remaining effect seems to be that, in addition to starting where I left off, launching Firefox opens an additional tab accessing "Index of file:///C:/PROGRA~2/MOZILL~1/". Every scanner I've used says the malware itself is gone, but this effect won't go away.

Yesterday I discovered a pop-up attached to my Mozilla Firefox, it was essentially a white box, with a grey bar inside, which I dangerously clicked as it would not allow me to close or access my Mozilla. Clicking the box revealed an ad for something call PC Keeper which now also shows in my remembered links as being in a second window. I was forced to shut down my computer to close the Mozilla, making all my links unavailable to me, and ultimately had to uninstall it from my computer. I attempted to reinstall a new version, but, again found this PC Keeper attached to it, it's white window firmly locking everything up, and forcing me again to uninstall the program. Please, find me a way to once more have my Mozilla without this PC Keeper.

When I go to att.net to check email, firefox takes me to several other sites, one of which sends me a scare screen, hoping I will click on it. I suppose you would call this malware. Is there a setting in FireFox to prevent it from going to sites I did not ask it to?

I will try to add a screen capture of the offending screen.

Something had infected my computer. With help I've removed most of the bad effects, but what remains is files of type JonuiCouupon being written into the Firefox Profiles area. When I delete the Profile, it creates a new one and starts writing them again. 38,000 files in the last week, totaling 330 MB.

Is there a way I can reset it to the default setting? Or how do I remove the Russian thing, is probably that program runes my connection

On both my Windows 10 machine and my Windows 7 machine, I am using Firefox Quantum 62.0.2 and the information at Tools>Add-on>Extensions says that McAfee WebAdvisor 6.0.0.136 is enabled.

I get the McAfee WebAdvisor green icons to show up for a Google search on my Windows 10 machine. However, I cannot get them to show up for a Google search on my Windows 7 machine.

Why do I get the green icons in a Firefox Google search on the Windows 10 machine, but I do not get them on the same search on the Windows 7 machine??? Google is a default search engine for Firefox on both machines.

I might add that I get the green icons for a Bing search on both the Windows 7 and the Windows 10 machine. Bing is also a default search engine on both machines. But, only Windows 10, and not Windows 7, will show the green icons in a Google search. This is strange!! What can I do to get them to show up in the Firefox browser Google search on Windows 7??

I read a post there dated 9/21/2018 that said Firefox 62 doesn’t support WebAdvisor. But that doesn’t seem to be true, 1) McAfee WebAdvisor is listed as an add-on; 2) I get the green icons when I do a Bing Search on my Windows 7, and I get the green icons when I do a Bing search AND a Google search on my Windows 10. It’s only a Google search on Windows 7 that does not produce them. What can I do to get them to show up for a Google search in Windows 7?
