Sounds like you need to make a clean re-install of Firefox.
But before going ahead with that, if you want to save your
bookmarks, you should download Mozbackup, and save
them. But only bookmarks, not user-profile.
Next you should do the clean re-install, following this guide(including removing user-profile):
Download Firefox and install.

you know im starting to think it is the sunbelt firewall because i disabled it and now its not doing it anymore :-\
Ok, sounds great I was just going to ask about quoted below, and
what happened after.
nevermind after my internet browsers open atleast once after rebooting windows they open nearly instantly every other time after the first time they are opened so it seems everything is good my pc is now working faster than my brand new laptop thats not even 2 weeks old yet so i would say it seems fixed smile.gif im soo friggin happy you are an amazing god smile.gif
I can't say what went wrong with the Sunbelt Firewall (don't know the product). Personally I use Comodo.
But good you found the cause of your problems.

so you have no problems with comodo? maybe i should try it
Just remember, that what works well on one system, may not be great on another.
Comodo is a fairly advanced Firewall, and needs some time to getting used to.
That said, it is one of the best free alternatives out there. I don't have any problems

Can you post a link to your malware thread?
Never mind I found it. Reading through it now.
You last posted HJT looks clean except for PnkBstrA.exe which is installed with some newer games and is not a problem according to Processlibrary.com.
So, I guess malware can be ruled out.
Comodo firewall is excellent, but very chatty when you first install it. You can place it in Training mode for awhile to help with the transition. I see you are running AVG 8 which is good, so you don't want the Comodo Internet Security Suite (free) which has AV and Firewall, you want just the Firewall.
The older Comodo Firewall Pro is still available or you can download Comodo Internet Security but when you install it, install just the Firewall.
