what is this virus that is causing my friend's Firefox to only go to download other browsers? It won't navigate anywhere but sites that offer browser downloads?
Start up Firefox and it automatically goes to a variety of sites offering browsers. Its a worm of some sort that has infected the Firefox exe or a virus pretending to be Firefox? Also affects IE.
Every time Firefox opened
