Download the install file for Firefox on another computer, put it on a flash drive and bring it over to your computer. See if Firefox runs as slow as IE, if it even lets you install it. When I've seen this type of problem it's usually been that Windows is corrupted somehow.

Can you go to a library, internet cafe, ask a friend, or at work? It's hard to say if it's spyware. Your Windows may be fine, I was just thinking out loud. It's hard to diagnose these kinds of problems over forums.

i think it is spyware - because, when I don't have any windows up on the desktop - I get this little popups. So, I think I am going to have the guy that bulit my computer - wipe it and reload it for me. Since, I can't seem to fix it myself.
