Bye bye firefox

Lately I have become more and more convinced I had malware on my system (for those not in the know, I run windows on my laptop). Scanning kept showing up nothing but I did not believe them.
Before I reinstalled last time I had issues with firefox taking memory, but it was solved by flashblock - and flashblock was on now, so it shouldn't be firefox, should it? Yet it kept taking all the memory after just 10-20 minutes usage, hanging on basic pages with text that I wanted to scroll down.

Running a scan of my system I saw it scanning a folder named google/chrome - and went WTF... I have NOT installed chrome since last time I reinstalled the OS. Feels pretty viral... But since I have it I figured I might as well use it. I am going to miss adblocking but... not going to miss a crashing system - going to test this for a while and see if it works.

  2. Do you have google toolbar installed? Get rid of it if you do, it's an abomination.

  3. There you are!

    No, I don't. I don't want no google toolbar. Or any toolbar. Meh.
