Hello

 

Yesterday I got browser hijacked by launchpage.org. It infected all three of my browsers Google Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. I fixed IE and Chrome by resetting those browsers. However I can't remove it from Firefox. Launchpage.org is my start page now no matter what I do including refreshing Firefox, restoring start page to default and to my original start page. To make matters worse I can't find launchpage.org anywhere in my system It's not in program files, add/remove programs, the registry, startup, services,  and not in processes when I open task manager. I have removed all addons and extensions from Firefox as well. I have run Microsoft Security Essentials and Supeantispyware and am running House call atm

I'm running Windows 7

Thank you for your help

Jack
