Mywebsearch removal in Firefox
From past few days, I am experiencing My Web Search spyware program, I have now apparently also in Firefox, somewhere on a link clicked on a site and accepted ... In Internet Explorer is very persistent, that you hardly get out, but in Firefox it seems to me worse! My Web Search installed an extra bar in Firefox. I can hide it through Image and Toolbars, but that thing is still there under. I have searched, but I do not get out, because there is not even. Has anyone an idea how I get away without my Firefox profile to delete? I use Mozilla products for years now, and it is the first time that I encountered.
