Every week or so my malware protector (Zone Alarm) tells me of suspicious behavior, that something called "Web Assistant Setup" is trying to launch

C:\Windows\Temp\xxxxxx.tmp\ExtensionUpdate.tmp

Could this be a Firefox file?

Ah...years ago I did, and it's still on my machine, and every now and then I load it up. So that's the culprit?

I think you've already answered that.
Do a search: Incredimail + Spyware/Adware/Scumware/Malware/Slows Computer ;)
