So, late one night setting up a new computer I stupidly downloaded mozilla firefox off of "firefox-todownload.com" or some similar site that was top of the google list. Without paying attention I skip through the install and realize what's happening as it begins; I cancel about 10% of the way through but it's too late. I am now infected with "better browse" "search protect (conduit)" and something like "sblite". I decide to not take any risks so I reformat my ssd and reinstall windows 7.
