    Help getting rid of "fixpcnow.net"

    Somehow I was allowed the privilege of getting malware installed in Firefox and I cannot seem to rid the system of it. After looking on the Internet and trying a few suggestions the thing is still there. I've run MS Security Essentials, Malwarebytes, Housecall, Adwcleaner, and Bitdefender without success.

    Can anyone tell me how to get rid of the thing?

    Alan, yes. That is where I got the "Adwcleaner" program mentioned in the original post. Thanks however.
