Original post here


My mom, without quite knowing what she was doing, installed SweetIM on our computer. I already knew it to be a malicious program from several forum posts about it (apparently very difficult to uninstall/doesn't uninstall). Well, after cleaning it up, I still have but 1 problem. When you type something like "google" into the search bar at the top of Firefox, instead of the standard "I'm Feeling Lucky" Google redirect, it goes to "http://search.sweeti...p?src=2&q=XXXX" where "XXXX" is what you searched for.

Question is, how do I fix this?

Problem Resolved.

Ran Firefox in safe mode then used the pop-up to reset everything to the defaults.
