OMFG...in all the world...millions (I'm sure) of FireFox Users...is there NOBODY who has found a solution for permanently removing the Precisead Pop-up & Yoog Search from FireFox and/or IE??? PLEASE tell me that there is a way to remove these 2 problems WITHOUT having to remove FireFox and/or IE.

I've been searching Google for a solution for months now...I've tried ALL of the Yoog removal solutions on Google as of today's date and NONE work to PERMANENTLY remove it. :thumbsup:

There's got to be someone somewhere that has found a solution.

PLEASE HELP US! BUT NO GUESSING!!!!!! I'm tired of wasting time removing stuff & editing my registry all just to have them come back upon restart.

I'm having this problem on 2 separate computers with the following basic specs:

Computer 1)
Windows XP
P4 3.1GHz
2GB DDR400
250GB PATA100
FireFox 3.0.10
IE 7.0.5730.11
AdAware Anniversary Edition 8.0.4
AVG Free 8.5
LimeWire 4.14.10 Pro
BitTorrent 6.1.2

Computer 2)
Windows XP x64
2- Opteron 285s
16TB SATA300 HDs
FireFox (not sure but it's the most current Version Avail...may be the same as Computer #1)
IE (not sure but it's the most current Version Avail...may be the same as Computer #1)
AdAware Anniversary Edition 8.0.4
AVG Free 8.5
LimeWire 5.???
BitTorrent (Not sure but it's a new version)

I have NO TOOLBARS of ANY KIND and NO Superfluous programs installed on either computer. I regularly go through the "Add-Ons" and Erase/Block/Disable add-ons that I'm unfamiliar with. I have my Internet Settings to "Prompt for 3rd Party Cookies" which I REGULARLY select "Block All" when the IE Pop-up Notification appears. I have all of my P2P programs "Port-Forwarded" in my Wireless Router Settings and I try to block all other communication to making hacking more difficult.

Thanks in advance,
