Hi all,

I'm desperate for your help! I'm not super computer savvy, so simple directions would really be appreciated.

I was surfing the internet tonight and noticed that when I tried to go to facebook, I was linked to the mediaplex site. As others online had suggested, I reset Safari and cleared all history on Firefox.

After doing so I was still worried, so I successfully changed the password on my facebook account. However, when I logged in the screen did this weird shaking thing that I've never seen before. Also, when I went to the change the password on my university email address I use to sign into facebook I kept getting errors and it won't let me sign in.

I'm really at a loss as to what to do and am worried about my passwords and accessing my uni account. Thanks for your help!

Laura

Go into your browser preferences and clear the cache and is facebook worth all the problems associated with it?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
