I thought that I was on an official Mozilla/Firefox website but apparently I was not. The FF I loaded immediately disabled pop-up control. Every second there were adds popping up from all sides. As fast as I got rid of them they reappeared. It looked like the program was taking over my computer. I ran my security scan and it did not find anything malicious on my computer. So I went back to IE which I hate and I have this bad version stuck on my computer. It will not delete in the control panel (which you probably already know!) So how do I scrub it away?
