The other day my browser completely spazzed. I clicked a link and I got hit by an uber-rick-roll or something. It was 15+ tabs in 15+ different windows, all rick roll things. [Yes, I know. Pwnt.] Eventually I got a few of them to go away, but then Mozilla crashed completely. I tried re-opening Firefox, and it asked me if I wanted to open a new browser thing or continue the previous one. I clicked for it to open a new one, and it did for a few seconds before I got a message saying something along the lines of "Sorry, but Mozilla has encountered an error and has to die now. Kbye." And it closed. I tried a few more times and this kept happening.

I rebooted my computer. When I tried opening Firefox I got a message saying that Mozilla Firefox was already running, so I had to exit that before I could open it again. I went to my Task Manager to see if it was running somewhere, but it wasn't. At this point I was tired, so I closed the laptop and got into bed. Right as I was about to fall asleep I heard that annoying "You have just won a new iPod nano" ad. [It scared the hell out of me, by the way.] So I opened the laptop to see WTF was going on, and it was just my desktop. No browser open. I tried going to bed again, but a few minutes later I heard another annoying ad. Still nothing there. So I just turned the computer off and went to sleep.

So, the next day I uninstalled Firefox completely, rebooted, and used IE to reinstall it. Even after reinstalling it, it still won't work. Everytime I open it I get that "BRB I gotta go die now, kbye" error message and it crashes.

So........ What do I do? I hate using IE. There's too many pop-ups and it's just plain annoying to use. Any clue how I can get Firefox to work again?

I've ran about twelve virus scans since this started. There was one minor thing found the first time I scanned, but I took care of that easily. I've done a few scans since then and there's nothing.

And wouldn't wiping the drive delete... everything? I would really rather not do that, if at all possible.

What would System Restore do, exactly? Would it erase everything from my HD?

I will look into Opera, though.

no i just restores you computer to an earlier state.. so if you installed a new driver or something and it has completely stuffed up your OS and can't uninstall it or something then you restore the system back to the state it was before you installed that driver

Bah, screw it. I just downloaded Opera and it's good enough for me. I was a little disappointed at first, thinking I wouldn't have any of my bookmarks from Firefox anymore, but apparently they transfered to Opera somehow.

Thanks guys.
