On the Firefox Environment Backup Extension page;
http://softwarebychuck.com/febe/Welcome%20pages/FEBE8welcome.html

Is a link for a Free Scan For Hidden PC Errors;
http://www.liutilities.com/affcb/?id=RBgen&aff=8825&xat=softwarebychuckRBfebeafterdl

When I downloaded the program, Norton Anti-virus Quarantined the program.
Here is a copy of the Norton report;

One more thing. When I previewed my post, the link for the Free Scan did not display. I had to turn off the parse option.

Thanks for the info. The file you are talking about is a third-party program from the company Uniblue. While I use some of their products, I can't vouch for all of them. I doubt that this program is a true virus, but more what may be considered a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program).

Uniblue has been around for many years (and, in fact, is a Microsoft Partner). If they were really distributing malware and viruses, they would no longer be in business.

Hi there. All I can tell you is what happen. And since the file was Quarantined by Norton Anti-virus . . . .
Can you contact them to let them know? The last few months, a lot of web sites were hacked.
