I removed some adware-trojan with Windows Defender and Comodo firewall that had geekbuddy a program that malewarebytes found 254 adware entries from. So deleted the things and then could no longer connect to the internet. After fidling around and think the old xp winsock fix internet started working again. With explorer i can get online in 2 seconds.
Ones i try to start firefox then it wont run. I see it lower in the taskmanager between the processes firefox32bit, but it wont start to be on the top of task manager. 15-30 minutes after clicking open out of the blue it pops up if i'm lucky. And ones it started and i click open on my desktop icon then it immediately opens a new window with fox running fine.
Working on Win10 16 gb ram 8064p, so not an ancient slow computer fox ran like a ferarri before the trouble.
I uninstalled firefox, tried the reset and even tried to rename my profile to old 2. I also see a load of files in my firefox main folder. Tried to run Firefox portable but that wont run eighter. Yet that folder does not have all these api files in the main folder.
These are some of them, there are 40 of these api dll's in my folder
Install log shows win 8 while i am on win 10

Before i reinstalled firefox i updated it, did not work, uninstalled Java then installed jre-8u111-windows-x64
Don't see Java between plugins or extentions eighter after reinstall.
I copied my Morzilla folder that is inside roaming about a month ago when all worked fine.
So as last try i can remove firefox again, go into roaming folder and delete the Morzilla folder in there and replace it with the one i backed up 1 month ago. That is what i always do if i get a new computer. This computer has been working fine incl firefox for over a year. And as i explained IExplorer still works fine. So i fear that the trojan messed up firefox. Or the trojan makes firefox think that i am on Win 8 instead of win 10 and that is why i have this trouble. Right click on my computer still shows that i work on Win 10 Pro 64 bit. So if i try to download firefox then it should recognise my used version since i can not chose which version to download Firefox Setup Stub 50.0.1 is what i get, and again FirefoxPortableLegacy36 also will not start. So in some way firefox seems to be blocked.
But figure that wont change anything cos if that would work then firefox portable should be able to run as well since that is 2 or more years old not including recent extentions or plugins. So i wont do that for now, hope someone here knows a solution. And yep i did close the non starting firefox32bit in my taskmanager before trying to run the portable version
Before i reinstalled firefox i saw a warning that there was a pref.js file in firefox that was not made by firefox. Guess that was because then i did not have java installed and that pref file had a java icon so bet it belonged to java. After re install of fox and java i don't see that in the error text file
Hope this is enough info to get it fixed
