It is a virus definitely. I have a friend who had the exact same problem with Vista on his Sony Vaio laptop. Lucky for him it was under warranty, and he was able to get it replaced. It is definitely a virus. Mozilla doesnt shopup and IE7 having problems connecting to any site.

I recommend that you try this online utility to scan for malware, virus, adware, etc:

I generally run my antivirus and Syware remover software on a daily basis, and thought my system was clean. However, I chanced upon this site and simply did a scan (its FREE!!) and it found 2 trojans, 3 malware and a host of other stuff. I really recommend you try it..its FREE after all :)

If that doesnt resolve your issue, I recommend doing a system restore. there is no other way.

Hope you rate this solution as Fixya. I would greatly appreciate your show of gratitude.

Tip

Freeware instead of expensive 'Suites.'


Freeware is a Great Way to Go!

Freeware;
  • is software intentionally available on the Internet without charge, and for all users to download.
  • ranges from programs which are excellent virus protection to programs that rival the best purchased word processing or spreadsheet "Suites." You can save money and help make information available to everyone, without limiting it to those who can pay.
Some of the best freeware programs I have found and given to many of my peers are;

Avast Virus Protection,
http://www.avast.com
Open Office Suite
http://openoffice.org
Picasa photo editor.
https://picasaweb.google.com
Mozilla Firefox
http:mozilla.org

  • offers a superb, fully customizable Web browser that is fast, functional, and offering well engineered add-ons and plug-ins.
  • Mozilla Thunderbird is the best mail client I have ever used and I have never paid a penny for its use.

***By actively promoting freeware, users are supporting it with this most valuable commodity ; appreciation.

How To Password Protect & Decrypt Microsoft Office 2010 Documents


Microsoft office 2010 , the next big buzz from Microsoft after Windows 7, is a productivity suite for Microsoft Windows,and the successor to Microsoft Office 2007.

Screenshots of Microsoft Office 2010

Not long ago I was just wrote an article about How to Password Protect Microsoft Office 2007 Documents. Now I’ll write a similar article about office 2010 by popular demand.
Microsoft Office 2010 indeed simplified the process to password protect and encrypt office documents. Which was considered a commendable improvement over password protecting documents under Office 2007. as the new process for Office 2010 is consistent across the core Office product line which including Word 2010, Excel 2010, PowerPoint 2010 etc. so here I only need to show you how the process just once using Microsoft Word 2010 as example.
Follow the step-to-step guide To Protect A Word 2010 Document Using Built-in Password Encryption
1. Click the File tab, then Click Info. On the menu to the right Click Protect Document and
Click Encrypt with Password.

2. The Encrypt Document dialog will appear, Type in a password and then Click OK to finish.

Please note – It’s very important to use a STRONG Password or Pass Phrase to protect your word document. Using a long PASS PHRASE (IE:I enjoyed myself today!) however with 10 or more characters will significantly increase the encryption strength of the document and decrease the likelihood someone will be able to break the encryption and gain access to your document.
After setting a password, your document should be protected!
Having password protected your word document? Someone should ask what if I forgot the password. So that’s what I’ll show below.
Follow the step-to-step guide To decrypt Word 2010 Document Using word password recovery 5.0
With this user guide, even a new user can fully control Word Password Recovery 5.0 in less than a minute.
Step1: Click “File>Open” in the Menu or the “Open” button to browse in the Word document.


Select your file in the Open File window, and click “Open“.

Step2: Select “Brute-force Attack (Trying All Possible Combinations)“.

Step3: Click “Start” button in the Menu to initiate the program.

Step4: The program is searching the password. Some time later, a message box pops up to you, displaying the expected password. Click “Remove All Passwords from the File” to remove all passwords (Password to Open and Password to Edit) from the file. Click “OK“.

Following this article, you could password protected your office 2010 and decrypt password protected office 2010 with ease.

I have installed Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 but, each time I try to open Word or Excel, I get the Windows Installer window which asks me to wait while it configures Office. The Word 2007 Window...


Is the account you use an administrator account? The reason I ask is I have seen similar bahavior on office 2000 where the user account does not have the rights to set up Word properly. If it is limited user, temporarily make the account administrator, load word, and then close it. then put the account back limited user if you wish, it should not need admin again. Microsoft never test their products on limited user accounts....

Hi friend,

Yes it is a virus. do one thing do a system restrore.But take all the backup first because once you do a system restore it will restore you PC to earlier time and all the data will erased.to do a system restore go to start>programs>all accessories>system tools>system information.

If you don't want to do a system restore then just remove the firefox and run a virus scan.Kaspersky is waste use bit defender and spyysweeper both to remove all the viruses.

Goodluck..
