So, I was looking for a good VNC program for windows and a friend recommended UltraVNC.  I typed it into google and clicked on the first link that took me to ultra vnc's website.  I clicked download and when installing, I chose typical instead of custom.  I clicked through a bunch of stuff and then chaos ensued!  Some registry cleaner started automatically running so I stopped it.  All websites I went to said they were not trusted by firefox.  all new tabs redirect me to conduit's search engine.


I went to the control panel and deleted all the programs that were just installed, but I did not see any program called "conduit".  Reading online it says conduit installs itself and you have to uninstall it, but there is nothing to uninstall.  Anyways I go into firefox and go to the troubleshooting page and reset firefox.  After resetting firefox I still cannot go to 'www.google.com' or 'www.yahoo.com' without firefox saying "This connection is untrusted!".  Is conduit not full uninstalled?  Is there some setting in Firefox I need to change?
