Browser opens 3 windows by itself and opens 3 new tabs for facebook. Is this malware?
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 think that malware could be a possible senario.
It wouldn't hurt to scan your computer.
I would also recommend removing Stopzilla. According to Web Of Trust reports, this program is a scam.
If you are looking for a good free tool that you can use to scan for infection, you can try any of the following:
- Microsoft Safety Scanner
- MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
- TDSSKiller - AntiRootkit Utility
- Hitman Pro
- ESET Online Scanner
If the scan turns up nothing, look inside your scheduled task list and ensure that there are no websites that are set to open on startup.
And to answer your question: repairing registries can cause issues, but in this case that is not the issue.
