The story begins with I want to try the Powershell this weekend. But somehow the windows updater can not get the Powershell patch from microsoft official webpage.  So I decide to download the Powershell by myself from some software sharing website.

Anyway, I managed to install myself powershell. Everything looks good until I lunch my firefox. The Firefox always connects to that garbage website I mentioned in the title. Well, obviously that powershell installation package is not as clean as I wish. Somthing changed my Firefox configuration! I guess my system is not be infected any virus or worm. Since the anti-virus firewall didn't rise any alarm during the powershell installation.

The guys on the internet point out this kind of jerk website usally change the starup command of your appliction shortcut. So when you start the IE/Firefox, the application will open that webpage.

So, after a quick check, I found my Firefox shortcut starup command has been changed to "Firefox.exe".  The same to the IE, even though I seldom use it.

After recover the startup  command, my Firefox finally get rid of that stupid website.

Fuck them again.  All the thing they can produce is garbage.
