Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Do a malware check with several malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.

Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware. All these programs have free versions.

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.

Check your user profile at the site.

Go to the top of any support.mozilla.org web page and press your user name to see your Mozilla profile. Including your questions and answers.


Where did you get your Firefox? Mozilla.org?


You may have ad / mal-ware. Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

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

How are you figuring you are getting "Hacked" as you are being vague.

Nothing in your previous thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1104912 would lead you to being hacked and nobody here or at Mozilla has any access to your computer.

Is it stuff found in your Firefox Cache? then that is completely harmless.
