I don't have much time, but a quick recount of my latest computer adventure thanks to Microsoft trying to muck with the firefox browser behind our backs.

Today I noticed an add-on I didn't install to my firefox browser, .net framework assistant. Seems microsoft wanted to add some security weaknesses into firefox allowing instillation of programs without the user's knowledge.

To ensure we have the weakened security they make it difficult to remove said unwanted addon (if you've got it, you'll notice the uninstall button for this addon won't work).

I followed the instructions here to remove it.

Well, I need to go take Mom to a Dr.'s apt. now.
