No, I am inclined to take on fewer burdens, because the machine I am using (Ruby's) is faster than the one I had been using when I had a telephone modem, but it is still not very fast.

I have been told to watch out for tool-bar add-ons, especially.

I checked mine, too. Not there. :)

I used Avast! to remove the add-on. I haven't verified it, though.

Katzy's link says that the option in the Firefox browser to uninstall the add-on is disabled, and it is difficult to do manually (that is, it involves the registry, in which a mistake can cause great harm).

I could try to uninstall the add-on from what is in Katzy's site, or I can tell my free Avast! to proceed to do it.

I am inclined to trust Avast! The box offering to do so is still up.

The message box says Microsoft.NET Framework Assistant is a browser add-on which has a bad reputation among Avast users, and asks me if I want to remove it. The box says browser add-ons are sometimes a privacy risk, and can also affect browser performance.

I have not intentionally downloaded or activated anything-on recently.

I am inclined to click the choice which says "Remove Bad Add-on" unless someone here at KF warns me not to.
