I think Buenchico is going to think I'm a right twonk when I tell him of my Firefox problems again.
Don't get me wrong though,I think it's a good browser,but it does have it's faults.I continually get the following report when I browse the web,and when I post questions and comments on AB.The above blue title bar says:Reported Insecure Browsing:Navigation Blocked-Mozilla Firefox.
and provides a report saying....

Insecure Internet activity. Threat of virus attack
Due to insecure Internet browsing your PC can easily get infected with viruses, worms and trojans without your knowledge, and that can lead to system slowdown, freezes and crashes.
Also insecure Internet activity can result in revealing your personal information.
To get full advanced real-time protection for PC and Internet activity, register Antivirus 2008.
We recommend you to protect your PC now and continue safe Internet browsing.

Will I need to register with Antivirus 2008?

I have Norton and Malwarebytes' Anti Malware,which is useful.I ran a Full Sytem scan with this and everything seems to be okay.I have Spyware Doctor as well.
I will be grateful if you can help me again.
The report:- "Reported Insecure Browsing:Navigation Blocked-Mozilla Firefox" is really bugging me now.
Please help.Thanks.I have reinstalled it,but it's still coming up with this message.

Good Grief! You've done it again!

As before, your problems are nothing to do with Firefox, you have installed malware (namely Antivirus 2008).

Malwarebytes Anti Malware (Mbam) is the standard for removing this, so I find it hard to believe that it hasn't detected it.

Run MBAM, check for updates,
Do a complete scan
Ensure that you click the Show Results button after the scan has completed.

Make sure that you click the Remove Selected button on the results screen.

Yet again, the problem is nothing to do with Firefox. You've still got a nasty trojan on your PC. (The trojan identifies your browser and adds' Mozilla Firefox' onto the end of its false messages. If you were using another browser you'd see the name of that browser added onto the messages).

I'm surprised that Malwarebyte's AntiMalware can't detect and fix the problem.There are dozens of websites which claim that their products will do the job for you but they all require payment.

If I had the problem I'd remove the files (and edit the registry) manually but it's not a job for the feint-hearted! The instructions start at 'Remove the processes' here: d=553

If you intend to try that method please make sure that you know how to back up your registry (and how to use the back-up file if things go wrong):

If in doubt, get a professional to do the job for you!!!!!!!

Cheers guys.Thanks for the lowdown once more.
I will run another Full system scan again using MBAM.
I'll try to make sure that I check every single thing when I scan the system,and check for updates as rojash suggested.
So,I will try again sometime soon.
Many thanks again to you both.

If everything else fails,my dad had a friend who knows about computers,so I might ask him.
