Whenever you try to open Firefox, a new msgbox will popup onto your screen displaying a msg like "I DNT HATE MOZILLA BUT USE IE OR ELSE..." with the title "USE INTERNET EXPLORER YOU DOPE". After it terminates the Firefox automatically like what is described in this or this site.

And so one of the advice given is " It can also be removed using freeware tool “hijackthis” which can be downloaded from here :http://filehippo.com/download_hijackthis/" and so I downloaded it and scan my pc and here's my log file:

Hello sleepinsanity,

Sorry for the late reply, but as you can see we handle more than our fair share of logs. If you still have problems please post a fresh HijackThis log and we can begin the cleaning process.

Regards,
