I clicked on www.internetspeedutility.net, to test the speed of my internet. When I did that it changed my Firefox Home Page to Internet speed utility. After I changed the home page back to the Firefox home page, I get a window popping up stating that my home page is changed by another application. It gives me an option to select previous home page or to continue to new home page. The window is popping up every time I load Firefox. How do I get rid of the "internet speed utility"  ???

hello, this sounds like a problem possibly caused by adware on your pc.

  1. please go to the firefox menu ≡ > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc).
  2. also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there.
  3. finally, run a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner, which are specialised in adware and browser hijackers.
