  1. I was able to choose Firefox as my default browser. Thanks
  2. My computer skills are not great. Juliet, mod from the virus/malware forum suggested Firefox w/ABP, so that's what I chose. I'm not getting any ads,but the ads blocked counter for ABP would hit 2400 sometimes on my email page, A.T.&T. Yahoo. I just added Ublock Origin and disabled ABP. Hope it works as well or better. I might as well uninstall Adaware,it really doesn't do anything until I run it. I get a small screen on start up that says Firefox is not my default browser. Then the microsoft settings screen pops up asking me to set my default browser. Google chrome is the only choice I can see, and no way to choose anything else. I uninstalled Avast secure browser. Is there some way I can choose Firefox as my Default browser?
  3. I just switched from Avast secure browser to Firefox. I'm paying for Avast Pro and Malwarebytes Premium. Adaware Antivirus Free version. Uninstalled CCcleaner because I heard it was compromised and contained malware. Anyone have any suggestions about what antivirus/malware programs work best with Firefox, freeware or paid for? Trying to get rid of what dosn't work and keep or find what does. No current computer issues. Thanks
  4. I have uninstalled Secure browser. I'll uninstall and reinstall CCcleaner. Thanks for your expert help.again. 🤤
  5. I seem to have moved all my bookmarks to Chrome,then to Firefox. Still checking to make sure I didn't forget some. Should I uninstall CCcleaner? I saw it was compromised,last year? Then I will uninstall Secure browser. Can I still use Avast Premium anti virus with Firefox?
  6. I saw one article that suggested I move ALL my bookmarks to Chrome,then import from Chrome to Firefox. Sounds like the long way around,but workable. If I cam move everything from Safezone to Chrome.
  7. Thank you. I'd like to import my bookmarks from Avast Safezone to Firefox . Only microsoft edge, I.E. and Chrome are on the browser import list. Is there a simple workaround for this? My computer skills are not the best.
  8. Yesterday Avast removed my SafeZone browser and required I download their new Secure browser. I now have pop up ads on just about every page I go to including the side panels of my Yahoo email page. I didn't have these before the browser change. I'm using Avast Pro and Malwarebytes Premium , Adaware and CCcleaner free versions. I see CCcleaner may be a problem. I tried using Mozilla/Firefox . The ads were still there. Should I uninstall CCcleaner? What can I do to track down and clean up these pop up ads? Any suggestions would be appreciated. If this question should be posted in a different forum, let me know. Thanks
  9. Last time this happened several times was last March. Not much trouble until recently. We have an optical mouse,so I turn it off to save the battery. More and more,I come back after 2-3 hours and the mouse is frozen and computer has crashed. Computer will also crash in the middle of browsing,no apparent reason,no warning. Seems a little slow. We have Windows 10, Avast Premium Antivirus, Safe Zone browser,Malwarebytes Premium Protection. Thoughts? Thanks
  10. Cut,instead of copy and paste out of my download folder to the desktop,worked perfectly. Here is the log.

  11. It won't work. I'm feeling pretty stupid. I've tried a dozen times with no success. I've got both on my desktop,but it can't find the list. Here's what I've done. start>run>type in Notepad>OK>R Click copy text in quote box>paste in Notepad> select all in notepad>Save As>desktop>the file,fixlist.txt,shows up on my desktop. Download frst64(32 is not compatible)>click show in folder>r click in folder send to desktop,it shows up on desktop r click on frst>Open> ok>cick on fix> can't find list They are right next to each other. No luck.
  12. Not able to scan. Not sure what the problem is. Didn't have any trouble when I ran this same scan before. Keep getting ... fixlist.txt is not in same location or directory. Followed steps exactly as before. Both are on desktop,right next to each other. I must be missing something.
