I keep setting up my homepage in firefox, but something keeps changing it to the yahoo searchpage. My Advanced Systemcare 7 caught a program in the act of changing my homepage and CLAIMS to have stopped it. However, it never bothered to tell me what that program was.(really stupid) Later on, I open my Firefox again and once again my homepage is back to being the yahoo searchpage.

1) Why didn't Advanced Systemcare stop it when it clearly stated that it did?

2) How do I fix this?

Now my Firefox is telling me, "DVDVideoSoft YouTube MP3 and Video Download 4.3.3.16 has been blocked for your protection. The installer that includes this add-on violates the Add-on Guidelines by making settings changes that can't be easily reverted."

Could these two things be related?
