Facemoods

Hi,

Im am having trouble removing facemoods from my laptop,

I have done everything i could think, uninstalled the programme. toolbar within firefox, plugins but it still remains on my computer,

The only feature which i still think is active on my laptop is when i search within the address bar in firefox it goes through a facemoods search engine not google,

I have even gone on facebook before and was warned i was directed to another website which was trying to get my password,

does anyone know how i can completly remove it from my laptop?

Regards Paul

In Firefox, could you click the orange bar in the top right hand corner and click on Add-ons then Extensions (assuming you have Firefox 4.0 or later).

Alternatively, you can hit the Alt key and navigate to:
Tools > Add-ons > Extensions

Then take a screenshot of what you see. If you need help with taking and uploading a screenshot, refer to the below tutorial.
