    So I installed this Fire Fox toolbar by 811 (http://www.811.com) and now it hijacks all of my Fire Fox browse by names. When I type in "gmail", in the status bar it shows that the request is being sent to search.811.com and then to google.com instead of taking me to GMail. What do I do to remove this? My HJT log:
    Also I think it changed my C:\Windows\system32\shell32.dll file. And it crashes my Fire Fox whenever I try loading a page with a Java Applet.
