when i surf from site to site, on firefox, I usually get inturrupted by some surf sidekick. i found out what it is and where it is but i cant delete it because it is always in use by another program. when i try to load a page it will say,

Link removed
I WAN'T TO GO TOcom&guid=CC55C9B4-3E01-1111-0000-00F539000000&client=SSK3

some times just for a second and sometimes it stays there. its a white background with a search bar and some words to click and it will search them. i have tried using my firewall to stop it from getting to the net, tried to destroy it in all ways possible.

im gunna try to boot in safe mode and delete it right now because i just thought of it. ill edit in how well that worked, or not.

Please go to the malware forum in my signature and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.

If you continue to have problems with firefox after they are finished with you here please come back to this topic and let me know what is going on.
