You'll probably have to go in and remove all remnants of Firefox from your Users and Program Files directories. If this still doesn't fix it, then you'll probably end up doing some registry diving to fix it. Don't forget to backup the registry and know how to restore it before modifying it!
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

That is a Mozilla specific file, it is found by my Avast as a trojan - which it is not!!
Go to the program installation folder 'C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox' and delete the 'xpicleanup.exe' file, and xpicleanup.dat. Even better, remove the whole Mozilla folder. Make sure Firefox is not running when you do this. If you reboot, You should be able to run the Firefox installation after that.
