Take a look at your extensions in Firefox. If you see any you don't recognize....disable or remove / delete them.

If you want, do the below and I will take a look. A missing Yahoo Toolbar isn't a bad thing in my book. That goes for all

browser toolbars. When Firefox updated recently to 43...it could be that it blocked the toolbar because it wasn't compatible...not sure if that is the case...just guessing.

 

Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

 

Post the FOUR lists mentioned below using CCleaner.

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Startups. On that page you will see a list of Windows Startups and at the top tabs for Firefox browser and Scheduled Tasks.

At the bottom right of that page you will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste the list of Windows Startups, Firefox extensions and Scheduled Tasks into your next

post. Please do that.

 

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Uninstall. On that page you will see a list of programs installed on your computer and at the bottom right of that page you

will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste that list in your next post. Please do that.

 

Do this, too:

Download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.

  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Scan button.
  • When the scan has finished click on Clean button.
  • Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
  • Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.

kjbarry....my advice to you is to start a new topic in the Am I infected? What do I do?  forum.

Along with a description of problems experienced, post the MBAM log that shows what it found and removed.

That earlier scan log can be found under the History tab on the main MBAM page.

 

You shouldn't expect one program will find and remove all adware and malware.
