A box saying Congratlations -You are today's lucky visitor (click ok) Then google changes to Ask.com style of google

Posted

When I start foxfire a grey background appears and a box in the center Says: Congradulations

                                                                                                                   You are today's Lucky visitor
                                                                                                                      Click OK to continue
                                                                                                                                                      OK (in small box)

If I click the OK box then google appears and its all change and it becomes associated with Ask,com. I was able to go into my Start etc and change it back but the next time I opened foxfire upon booting on that grey screen appears again and this congratulations you are today's lucky visitor etc. reappears. I don't want to see that changed screen again so I just go to my favorites, bring up google the old way and the ASK.com is not there. Any suggestions. I ran a full scan of my virus protection and the Genie scans. It still returns.
