Hi,
I am not sure I know exactly what you problem is, but if it is that every time you click on a link, it is IE7 that opens and not Firefox. If this is the problem, open Firefox, open tools, options, advanced, put a check in "always check to see if Firefox is my default browser" Then click "check now" and then follow prompts to make Firefox your default browser.
If that was not the problem, please ask for more help.

no that is not the problem sir.even when im not using the internet and just browsing my PC internet explorer still opens up and its just adverts.

Hi and welcome to Daniweb,
Do the following:
First of all run Disk Cleanup.
Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBA-M) to your Desktop.

* DoubleClick mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install MBA-M.
* Be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When MBA-M finishes, Notepad will open with the log. Please save it where you can find it easily. The log can also be opened by going to Start > All Programs > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware > Logs > log-date.txt.
Reboot the computer

Download and run HiJackThis. Do a full system scan and save the log.
Post back here with both the MBA-M log and the HiJackThis log.

Please Run the ESET Online Scanner and attach the ScanLog with your post for assistance.

* You will need to use Internet Explorer to to complete this scan.
* You will need to temporarily Disable your current Anti-virus program.

* Be sure the option to Remove found threats is checked and the option to Scan unwanted applications is Checked.
* When you have completed that scan, a scanlog ought to have been created and located at C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt.
Reboot the computer.
Run a new HJT scan. Post back with both logs.

Go to Control Panel and look in Program, Installed Programs for AskBar. If you see it remove it.

Looks pretty good. Update MBA-M and do one more Full Scan with it. Have it remove anything found.
Reboot the computer and do another HJT scan. Post back with both logs.
Are you still having the problems with IE 7 opening on it's own?

Yes, do both. We need to be certain everything is cleaned up. Then I will give you the final steps.

Sorry, Vista wouldn't allow write access to the Host File and if fixes with HJT had been needed you would have had to do it manually. No need to worry about that.
Your logs look good to me. Is everything working ok? If so you can uninstall HJT. If you would ever need it again a new copy should be used.
