Hello Mike
I also have used Malwarebytes for many years along side various security software programmes, never a problem. Last year I upgraded to the Pro
version, for a very reasonable amount of money for a life time licence, which runs constantly as against the free version which only runs on demand
and requires updating before every use.
Always download software direct i.e firefox.com or Mozilla, another trustworthy site is Cnet.com guaranteed clean downloads, very trustworthy in my

Got to be tough on you Colin otherwise you're always going to be an easy target for the conmen. You also probably agreed to the installation of all that adware....

Aha, more victims. I always download from cnet, and have done for years. I recently went through a spate of ads popping up in the bottom left and right corners of the screen. I'm using IE9, and Windows 7. MWB didn't do a thing for me, then I tried Bullguard; it worked, but kept reminding me to buy it. I eventually found a highly rated program called Adfender, and it works, without constantly reminding you that it's there. It also has some interesting features you access by opening it, and getting a list provided. You can also review the programs activities. I've been using it for several days now, and it's the first time in months I've had uninterrupted peace. I got it off cnet, and it's free, and doesn't seem to slow my PC operation. Btw, it works with all the popular browsers.

Looks like cnet is the route? If you know this you know but if you don't (as we all didn't in our earlier days) then you get lumbered.

Is my start just a homepage search, if so going to Internet settings and making google your default should get rid of it
