How to remove Mozilla from off my other files so I can open them?
Mozilla image is placed on all of the ext. to all my files and programs ( even in the sub-folders ). Every time I try to open a program the internet comes up. This is happening on my user account,and I have to work on my guest user account to use my computer.I'm concerned that it might find it's way to my guest account.Anyone with an answer out there? I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate and can't reuse the operation disk because it would remove ALL my files and programs from my computer. I thought it might be a virus, but I have Norton 360 and I've used it for as many years as I've had my computer. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If the Guest account works, then the simplest thing to do is to create a new Windows account.
On the new Windows account, you would start over with a fresh Firefox profile that doesn't contain any of your data like bookmarks and passwords. You can restore data by copying files from the other account's old profile while Firefox is closed.
Have you used any "registry cleaner" type program recently? If so, refrain from doing that in the future.
I can't do it that way, because I would lose everything.The Mozilla emblem is on every ext. that boots the program or file all the way into the sub-folders.
