Sometimes the page was stop loading when using Firefox and caused IE the same problem. I had to restart Firefox so that the problem was fixed. I noticed a suspicious line located at Firefox status bar that said "Transferring data from tongji.baidu.com..." but it didn't show at IE status bar. Is my Firefox hijacked by Baidu? But I checked there were none of any Baidu add-ons installed in my Firefox.

P/S: I'm using Firefox 34.0.5.

Download and run Adwcleaner which should remove baidu from your PC. If you want instructions for usage: Instructions

I already ran Adwcleaner previously and it could not remove "Transferring data from tongji.baidu.com..." from my Firefox status bar.

Can you tell me where is the location of backup folder of JRT?

Have you installed anything recently? If so please try uninstalling it/them and delete the setup files. Thisis often the case.

You mean I installed 'glk_Safe_DE94DE8_INFO'? I can find it under Programs and Features. By the way, you haven't tell me where is the location of backup folder of JRT.

JRT loads from the downloaded file and places a txt document on your desktop. A lot of times when you download a program you get more than the software you intended. Chances are it may have come in bundled software you didn't know you had. Sometimes they give you the option to opt out of installing them at setup but install them anyway even if you say no. I'm suggesting that you check your Programs and Features folder to see if there are any unrecognized programs. If there are and your not sure you can list them here and we'll help you decide.
