Kindle Internet Problem.



http://tinypic.com/r/k6li8/6

That's my problem..

It appears to be doing this automatically and creating files and folders on the kindle root. Anybody else have this? Anybody know how I can fix this?

Would you provide some background from the time this started?

If it is recording the sites you visit - what is the oldest recorded site and what was the site you visited just prior to that one?

Did you install anything or modify anything?

Did you tell windows that it could use your kindle "usb drive" to accelerate windows? If a USB mass storage is fast enough, windows will ask this sometimes when it detects the device.

If you said yes, you gave windows permission to store "crap" on your kindle.

If you did not say yes, then you may have "malware" on your windows PC. Because that filename looks like part of a URL (web page address), I suspect it may be caused by malware, or some other badly behaving program that you installed.

so are you saying that malware is now on my kindle.?. because i assure you i did not let it be used for readyboost.i.e. the boost of ram you were describing. It is a url type thinh because it happens when using my kindles internet... the filenames are of what i have searched. i delete them as i see them.. i assume no one else has hadthis problem? Thing is i have no hacks installed .. . . i reset my kindle to factory settings. So... i guess my kindle is f****d?

My translation -
Conner: I didn't do anything, it isn't my fault.

@Conner:
Send it back to Amazon, let them fix it for you.

How I parsed it is the files are not being stored by windows over USB as I thought after reading his previous post. They are being stored on his USB drive while using his kindle web browser.

He must be visiting some suspicious website that stores crap on his usb drive using funky javascript code. At least that is my best guess based on the limited information provided.

Ahh... readyboost, those windows buzzwords have been getting pushed out of my mind by more interesting kindle stuff.

@Conner: It isn't the kindle that is "f**ked", as you suggested. It is the choice of websites you visit on your kindle that appears to be the problem here.

EDIT: I just looked at the posted photo again. It says "downloading ads" while on a mobileread website. Could that be a side-effect of one of the "Special Offers" disabling hacks?

@Conner: Is this a Special Offers kindle? Did you disable special offers? What firmware version are you using? What hacks do you have installed? You did not give us enough details to help you. Please answer these questions, so we can tell you exactly how to not shoot yourself in the foot again.

Well... No MY Kindle is not Special offers. I purchased this before they were even released. The choices of website --> it happens on every website. I am using Firmware 3.3. And Currently I have no Hacks Installed. (After A problem with Duokan and the internet. I Reset to Factory defaults.)

Doing a "reset to factory defaults" does not remove hacks.

What what? It's a simple statement of fact; doing a "reset to factory defaults" does not remove firmware hacks, jailbreaking, etc.

well....... Then I have had. or have I dont know anymore : Launchpad ; Duokan ; Duoakan 2012 ; Picture Viewer Full Screen Mod ; Readability Mod ; Ive used the 'Cosmic Egg Algorithm' thing I've used the animated screensaver.. I installed but by launchpad merged developer key where i then played the snakes game and loaded the mangle and kif
Custom Screensavers.. and ..I have kite. That is all i have ever installed I think..

EDIT: Thinking about it .. it did coincide with the launchpad installation. Could this be a potential cause?

It might be worthwhile uninstalling the hacks you've installed and see if that helps.

My demos (including cosmegg and others) do not "install" and do not change anything. You just run them and they write only to the eink display. My tcc compiler package installs some extra symlinks to the root partition, but they should not interfere with anything even if you do not run the uninstaller to remove them.
