Hi there. Would certainly appreciate some help from you kind people.

Very annoying this as I'm not great with computers. Firefox now comes up with this PartyCasino.com window every time I open the browser. I am running Windows Vista. Tried several things to remove it:

Can't see anything of Firefox plug ins or extensions.
Can't see any significant mention on the internet
Can't see anything suspicious in Windows programs list.
Ran spybot - it didn't delete it.
Did a scan with Kaspersky - didn't work.

Now trying ad aware and am going to uninstall Firefox.

Any other ideas?

Hoping you can help, many thanks!

Many toolbars and Add-ons come bundled with other software and can be removed via Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel or Programs and Features in Vista/Windows 7 so check there first.
