No page loads? Try going to the Firefox Orange Button, Preferences, Advanced tab, Network tab, click the "Settings..." button on "Connection - Configure how Firefox connects to the Internet" at the top, and check "No Proxy" or "Auto-detect". If "Manual" was selected and changing it to "No proxy" fixes this, specially if the HTTP Proxy was, you should perform a malware scan with one of these: (Free version)

I've seen this kind of malware quite a few times now, does anyone know how to prevent this before it happens?
