ok that above is what shows when i type in craigslist. its my favorited stuff. but now something else showed up and that was not favorited

ok this pc is a winxp pro and is family used. we live in nyc. And basically no one uses craigslist except me. my parents dont even know how to use the pc well my dad just prints stuff out and my mom reads the news


I just visited my family and used the computer, and i typed in firefox Craigs and then the listing came up. Then i see a damn listing of an oven in san diego penninsula? im like wtf? no one here can even remotely navigate that deep into the net especially craigslist and and yea i went to the add it didnt have a pic it was just talking about an oven in san diego...i am paranoid now

Then i clicked tools clear private data. and typed it in again and IT DID NOT appear. It was gone. Only my bookmarked urls from cragislist appeared

WTF? i scanned my pc and everything showed up clean. i use prevx too. scanned with dr web cureit, malwarebytes, what in the name was that?

hey cool down

I don't think you have any malware,adware etc issue. Maybe those listing came because you clicked them accidentally or opened in pop-ups by firefox.

I think deleting history will make sense, and i hope you did that.

So nothing to worry here.
