I've been getting pop-up windows from anti-malware and registry cleaner software websites, selling their product. After these pop-ups, I begin having problems with my computer. Some of the problems I've had are: "lost" my optical drive (fixed since then), my Optimize 3 program will no longer work, IE cannot connect to the internet. I've done a Restore and other fixes. It works for a while until another pop-up appears.

I installed Adobe CS5. It installed the Contribute 6.0 Toolbar. Ever since then, FF runs incredibly slow, so I am trying to get rid of it. Going to Tools --> AddOns and removing the Contribute Toolbar does not fix it (upon restarting, it shows Contribute was just installed). I've tried trashing CS5, FF, and FF profile files and then reinstalling FF. Contribute is still there! Help!

This has happened twice in the past week. When I create a new folder nested inside two other existing folders, another folder in another branch is renamed to the newly-created folder's name. The folder that is being renamed is inside the Links folder. (I am not expecting an answer. I cannot find another place where I can report an issue with the browser.)

Sometimes when I open a FireFox window the only part of the window that will respond to my mouse or keyboard is the "X" in the upper right to close the window. The page will be fully loaded but I still can't type in the field that it defaults to (my homepage is Gmail so it's the user name field) I have to close the window and open a new one to get any response. Sometimes I have to repeat this two or three times. Does anyone know how to keep this from happening at all?

Need a shortcut to "Allow pages to choose their own colors, instead of my selections above option preference" I know where it is and how to use it but I have to go through 7 mouse clicks to change it, then a few minutes later change it back. I also know the sequnce is alt t, alt o, alt c, alt a, then ok, ok. Got to be a way to make a one key short cut for this. I use a black background to reduce eye strain, but about 10% of the webpage I go to can't be send with black so I have to go into tools and hit 6 or 7 things to chnage it then after through with webpage have to do it all over at Not allow webpages to have own color. Very very cumbersome.
