I downloaded a CD-Rom game for my daughter and afterward hours later as my Son got on Youtube, he complained of his screen being unviewable. It has been like this for a week and if I am lucky, certain times, I can get a vid to play with no problem. But for the most part, they either look like the first one or totally obscured. I have asked around and no one else seems to have the problem with Youtube. I tried to install flash player to no avail. It wouldnt register. And even tried system restore and it didnt work. Any ideas what the problem is ??
I got this new (old) car today...Boy is she a classic!..1967 Buick Lasabre..My mom was a teen when this beauty came off the assembly line. ..I just know I am going to end up working overtime alot at my job after I graduate nursing school to get her reupholstered and some cosmetic work done. She deserves it. She's my Baby . NEVER gonna trade her or sell her....NEVER! She only has 40,353 original miles on her, so she will be riding my old ass around for many years to come.
I am a Joplin fan and as I was poking around in You tube , I came across this video of Jennifer , 15 years old and boy does she have a voice!.....she really does this song justice. She did a much better job than Faith Hill .
I have just yesterday reformatted my computer......
Right after downloading Firefox as my browser again as I was putting everything back on after wiping it clean, up pops a Trojan warning from Avast.....
Now since yesterday, that makes a total of 3 Trojans and a few adwares...GEEZELOUISE!
Needless to say, I am uninstalling it ASAP. As I was poking around in Google , I came across this new article on Mozilla and their denials.....
I say, its I know where I am getting these Trojans and why my Firefox crashes from time to time!
Mozilla denies new Firefox bug is security risk Hackers trawling for clues in Bugzilla tracker, say some Firefox developers By Gregg Keizer July 20, 2009 09:41 PM ET
Computerworld - Mozilla is denying that a bug that crashes Firefox 3.5 is a security vulnerability, countering earlier reports that the company's latest browser contained a flaw even though it had just been patched.
In a Sunday post to Mozilla's security blog, Mike Shaver, the company's vice president of engineering, said that the bug, which had originally been disclosed on the milw0rm hacker site, is not a vulnerability. "The reports by press and various security agencies have incorrectly indicated that this is an exploitable bug," Shaver said. "Our analysis indicates that it is not, and we have seen no example of exploitability."
Exploit code hit milw0rm last Wednesday. Firefox developers immediately logged the bug into Bugzilla, Mozilla's change- and bug-tracking database.
The bug, continued Shaver, does crash Firefox 3.5 -- and the recently-released 3.5.1 -- in some situations. But there's no way for an attacker to exploit that by injecting malicious code on the machine. The bug can crash Windows, Mac and Linux editions of Firefox, including Firefox when it's being run on the still-unfinished Windows 7.
Both Shaver in his blog post and developers on Bugzilla noted that the Firefox crash on Macs was due to a flaw in Apple's operating system, specifically the ATSUI system library. "We have reported this issue to Apple, but in the event that they do not provide a fix we will look to implement mitigations in Mozilla code," Shaver said.
Mozilla developer Vladimir Vukicevic countered that it was unlikely Apple would fix the problem. "We've reported this and similar bugs in the past to Apple; they have so far had no interest in fixing such bugs in their font rendering subsystems, especially if they're in ATSUI and not CoreText," said Vukicevic on Bugzilla.
Just last Thursday, Mozilla patched Firefox 3.5 for the first time, issuing a fix for a critical vulnerability in TraceMonkey's just-in-time (JIT) compiler. In the run-up to creating a fix for that flaw, Mozilla developers speculated that the hacker had dug through Bugzilla to find information that helped him exploit the vulnerability.
Mozilla repeated the charge in the entry for the newest bug. "Sam and Reed think that someone might be trawling Bugzilla in order to develop exploits," said Mike Beltzner, the director of Firefox, in a comment added to the Bugzilla thread. "Not sure what to do about that." The same hacker who posted exploit code last week was one of two who claimed to have created the newest attack code.
Gal declined to suggest solutions about hacker trawling. "I am not comfortable talking about what goes wrong and why since that might reveal other, potentially even more severe problems in some cases," he said.
There is as yet no fix for the crash bug now being investigated.
According to Mozilla's Web site, it's planning to release another update to Firefox -- tagged as 3.5.2 -- by the end of this month or in early August.
I currently have this cyberdefender trial and I am only 75%protected now and want it removed and another downloaded. So, I cleared my cache, and have went though c- cleaner and add/remove programs to uninstall....all it says is the uninstall wizard is complete , cyberdefender will not budge and I have cleaned after, and even did a restore point at one time trying to get my computer working somewhat as its infected so it would maybe uninstall .....nothing.... OS is windows 98 home ed. I unistalled again and again and like I said , it says uninstall wizard complete and my mouse keeps freezing and pages keep changing and I am tearing my hair out...
