Avast Web Shield threat detected

  RedMist 17:11 15 Jan 2014

Every time I open firefox, a window or tab I get a frightfully well spoken lady telling me a threat has been detected. I've run malwarebytes (4 PUP detected and removed) and scanned with Avast (no problems detected). Only intrusion found recently is homepage hijacked by search engine which is OutBrowse sp4 but can't find it in programs (control Panel) to remove it. Any ideas pls?

Take a read here - there is a LINK to download AdwCleaner which should be able to remove it.
