I have been working on a friends laptop. He was infected with Findwide which is a browser hijacker. Nasty bugger. I believe I have gotten rid of it
using Spyhunter which also cleaned up a bunch of other junk he had lurking around. It affected both Firefox and IE which seem to be running ok now
except for one little problem.
If I try to download anything, it goes through the motions and shows it downloaded in the download box but it does not show up on the HD folder. Tried both FF & IE. Would download & try Opera but there is my dilemma. I reset both FF & IE, any suggestions?
Good to see u made it back
Bob, download the Opera installation program onto another computer and transfer it to a USB thumb drive, then install it onto the laptop from the thumb drive.
see my response in the other thread, could be a DNS issue.
Thanks Leigh will try that when I get home.
