Unwanted programs load when booting mozilla

Posted

When I boot up mozilla, unwanted programs such as game sites, registry cleaning programs, etc. load up also. This has only happened since the last mozilla up date.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== After the last update

Sounds like Malware on your PC.

Install, update, and run these programs in this order. They are all free for personal use, but some have limited functionality in the "free mode" - but those are features you really don't need to find and remove the problem that you have. (Not all programs detect the same Malware.)
