when I click the history box, at the bottom below the Yahoo tab there is a tab for a porn site. How do I get rid of this. I have already removed Firefox and have reloaded it. The line was still there It says free live chat, nude cams, sex shows, adult streaming....

Chosen solution

Do a malware check with some malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.
