I found superfish.com on my computer also runing Windows Vista with Internet Explorer, which hijacked my IE browser when I did Google searches.

I removed it by going to Tools > Manage Add-ons and disabled Surf Canyon. I uninstalled Surf Canyon from my compter, then I removed the Surf Canyon folder at located at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Surf Canyon".

I also removed it from my registry by running "regedit" from my Windows command prompt (regedit.exe). I selected Edit > Find and did a search on Surf Canyon. I deleted every occurance of Surf Canyon and the problem has gone away.

If anyone has other suggestions, please feel free to provide them to me and others.

Sincerely,

KDP

Just disable it like they tell you to do if you don't want it:

In any case the Price-Comparison can be disabled at anytime;

Tools->IE Tab Plus Options->Full Mode and uncheck the box next to Support Price Comparison!!!!

Return to Firefox Support
