Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.


Note: A Firefox reset may not remove any bad programs.

After your system has been cleaned, Bookmark and use this; Download the Mozilla Search Reset {web link} This add-on is very simple: on installation, it backs up and then resets your search preferences and home page to their default values, and then uninstalls itself.

Seems like your computer is infected with virus. One way you could fix this without purchasing an antivirus is to reset firefox. You may create a backup of your firefox before doing it. This will reset all your configurations including history and plugins. The Refresh Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to default: mzl.la/MnSTZB Before that, I'd suggest you to try deleting all the previous plugins and toolbars you've installed.
