Bearshare.com has taken over my homepage & won't let me change back to Firefox. I've deleted it but it won't die.

Posted

Norton A/V gave bearshare.com the green light as a safe site/download. I've deleted it because it went everywhere on my computer. It's still in there & will not let me change it back to my Firefox home/start page. It has taken over the page & my search options. It no longer comes up when I search for files with bearshare in it, yet it will not let me change anything! Every place I've gone, followed Firefox's instructions, etc., to change it back, bearshare.com overrides it and the changes I make won't take. I am freaking out and only know enough about computers to get myself into trouble. When I downloaded bearshare.com, I never saw any questions asking me if I wanted it to be my homepage/search engine, because I always say no, because I want Firefox to be the start of everything. Any help is appreciated because I have done all I can think of & it's become the Living Dead Download that won't die. HELP!!!!!!
