    What AntiVirus are you using ? Price peep seems to be a Smart Virus, And either has to be removed Manually or you will have wipe the computer and do a fresh install of your OS....Did your computer come with recovery disks..how long have you had it ? you can also try system restore...

    Ghostman 1, hello again.
    I have e desktop computer and i am using windows 7.
    I will install Avast, but i have one question.
    I found some removal tips here http://www.americanpendulum.com/2013/01/29/price-peep/ should i follow them, becouse anothe user told me that it would be better to just uninstall and then install firefox again, without importing any saved add-ons bookmarks and passwords (which will be really bad for me as i have tons of bookmarks already :oops: )

    And when i install the antivirus program is it enough to just do a scan or do i have to do other manual deleting? Thank you!

    Well first of all, you never run ANY computer now days without an AntiVirus... Again, Install Avast free edition, then update it, then run a Full scan..
    At least it is a starting point to see how bad you have the Virus.. If it is a SMART Virus, then you will have to do a recovery or a full reinstall..

    What is a SMART virus? A specific virus infection, or viruses that are hard to remove?

    A Smart Virus is a Virus /Trojan that learns from your, and his Mistakes and will take over your Computer..It can even wipe your hard drive or steal all your info from your computer... The ONLY way to remove a SMART Virus is too Wipe the drive and reinstall Windows 7... Did your Computer come with a Recovery Disk ?
    It is easier to wipe the drive than try to find every single branch of the Virus...

    As I saw in some forums your issue isn't a virus It is just a crappy software on your PC.
    Remove as you would any other software. (Add/Rmove Programs in Control Panel)

    Good luck
    :D
