unable to open some links on websites

Recommended Posts

i use firefox but after quarantining some adware im having problems opening some links on websites. if i click on the link to open a new tab sometimes it comes up as double click gif image and other times it comes up as go.url(gif image 1x1 pixels) sometimes if i double click quickly the link works. other times the link works ok. this has just started happening after the quarantine so im wondering if its connected as some of the adware are the double click gif image i mentioned above and one is adware.vundo variant- launch.does that have anything to do with it and maybe its been quarantined when it shouldnt have?. also around the time i quarantined the above files i got a message on my comp saying something about the hardrive not being able to work effectivly because of what had been uninstalled or i guess quarantined and asked me to reinstall. is that connected to the quarantine?

also sometimes the blue bar right at the top of the page turns from english to what looks like japanese (language)

Hi Lucie.

Please post the version of Windows that you're using (such as XP, Vista, or 7)

Also, have you run a complete scan with the latest version of SuperAntiSpyware.

Cookies of course won't matter - can you post the actual SUPERAntiSpyware scan log here so we can see what files were removed? If they are in system restore, they won't be operative anyways, and thus would not cause the issue. We'll see what we can find in your scan log.

1) Right click on the SAS icon to the left of the time and choose "View Control Center...".

2) Click on "View Control Center..", then double click the latest scan log.

3) Highlight the whole log, then right click to copy it.

4) Right click to paste the log here.

Hi Lucie.

The log shows nothing that relates to your issue.

What links are not opening?

Do such links open in Internet Explorer?

Based on your answers to the above, I'll give you the solution.

they tend to be links within a webpage if that makes sense for example on the page below there are links to maps of the hotel pictures etc. they sometimes work and sometimes dont.sometimes i get the double click @doubleclick[1].txt so if i double click quickly it works other times it wont work. had this same problem on a few sites. its only a few.the majority are ok but i wondered if it was a problem with adware or something more serious. can u advise on what the Adware.Vundo/Variant-Launch is.is it serious as ive never had it b4 and google hasnt really helped interms of a good explanation thanks for all your help. yes its the same with IE double click appears etc
