Hi Experts,

I have a windows 7 computer and every time I open Firefox I will get redirected to www.mysearchresults.com site, I have change the home page to Microsoft.com but will redirect me back to www.mysearchresults.com ,
plus will show a blinking box saying that my computer is at risk and to click the box, sometimes the blinking box will say that I need to clean my registry. I tried to open IE and I don't have this issue.

Please advise

Go to Bleepingcomputer.com and download ADWcleaner or Junkware removal tool.  One of those should remove the junkware and then you should be able to set your home page.

Pay particular attention to the advice regarding installation software/shareware.
Always choose custom install (not recommended) and pay attention to everything you "accept".
