Mozilla Firefox hijacked!

  wonderwill 11:46 29 Aug 2010

On the firs boot of my PC (XP Pro) and the first time I go into Mozilla Firefox, the opening page is coming up with the web page of a company I recently hired a car from. This is not set as my home page and I have tried deleting under Tools options applications but it is still coming up.
It does not come up under subsequent openings of Moxzilla in that session.
Help appreciated.

You could try restoring the default home page: click here

If that doesn`t work, scan with Malwarebytes Antimalware or SuperAntispyware.

Open whatever Browser page you want for a home page then go to Tools.options.general and just click on use current page then ok.

Above that there is a dropdown box let it show when Firefox starts show my home page.
