Running Adwcleaner, and not disabling FF scan, many files came up with "crossriderapp" as part of the pathway with in User_pref. I have no idea why Crossrider is there and should it, or can I, delete those files without harming anything?

If they are in user.js file, the file and any prefs in there do not exist in Firefox by default. ... thats where Malware places it prefs that remain persistant. I would delete or rename the files or their folder and see if that has any negative effect.

Its nasty if the app was this https://encrypted.google.com/search?num ... lN1iJ7IeCo Probably installed in Windows Programs

Looks like monetization toolbar crapware. Most likely came as a deadhead of a recent freeware install.

Google-it or just run a file scan, for "crossriderapp" >> start studying. Its one of the things you need to learn you have to do when you start adding programs and otherwise. No Offense meant>Just reality, Gottabe :wink:
Edit: Just posted and saw the new interceding Loudnoise post, that is a very good observation that I support. =D>
