What is everyone doing about the bing virus that seems to infect the bookmarks. It is creating without my prompting hundreds of bing bookmarks.

Postáilte

Bing keeps creating hundreds of bookmarks, as does Microsoft suggested sites in my bookmarks folder.

This is not a virus located on my computer. What it is is a huge number of bookmarks that is like bookmarking the bing site hundreds of times. It is on firefoxe's server because which ever computer I accessed fire from it was in the bookmarks. I did manage to delete them and backup the clean bookmarks file. What also seemed to accompany it was a microsoft suggested sites and web page. These were also deleted. I am curious if anyone knows the source of the pollution into bookmarks file or the bookmarks themselves. I want to prevent this from happening again. These type of fixes take my time away from valuable work. I simply called it a virus because it blocked up the bookmarks and reflected my irritation with Bing and Microsoft from causing this to happen.

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
