    Default Firefox download freezes firefox

    Hi there all. A computer that recently had a virus has firefox freezing when doing a download. I have even totally uninstalled it and reinstalled with the same results. Have tried numerous things from my friend Google. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    Yes did a virus scan from the Parted Magic cd using ClamAV and now doing another using Avira.
    I'm begining to wish I had done a fresh install when I fitted the new hard drive.

    Disabling SR may have helped it. And removing temp files etc with ccleaner may also help

    No it was getting rid of that tracking.log file that did it. Disabling system restore didn't cure it before hand.
