I am clearly suffering from some sort of malware infection - the most obvious symptom is the common google search page redirect that a lot of people are having trouble with. I just had a new bit of strange behavior - ESS has given me the "Potential Threat found" window, citing a file created by Lavasoft Ad-Aware. Not surprising - probably Ad-Aware has put something in its quarantine and ESS is finding it there. But here's what is strange: It seems like the text in the Warning window is garbled, so that the three buttons I can click are labeled on" width width width And when I click on "show advanced options" the checkboxes are labeled: Show alert window Quarantine" toolt for analysis" toolt from detection" toolt I'll try to post a screenshot here, but I thought I should write the text in case I can't get the screenshot. (OK, I think the .png file should be attached) Any ideas what is happening and what I should do about it?
