Friendschecker virus/browser hijacker


Recommended Posts

 In Mozilla Firefox (latest version),  I keep getting redirected to a worthless screen that claims to be from

 Friendschecker.  It just gets in the way.  I can click a "continue" type tag to go on to what I was trying to browse.


This thing just pops up periodically .... I cannot find it  in active tasks or installed programs AND I don't think it is related to Facebook.  I rarely go into Facebook.


  I THINK it is putting bogus hyperlinks in the text of sites I am viewing....an underlined word or phrase that behaves like a hyperlink but goes to a worthless site.



 Has anybody has a similar experience?


 Thanks for any help.
