    Before receiving this response I uninstalled Firefox which is the browser I use. I uninstalled Kaspersky
    and installed Norton and ran a complete scan and it says I don't have any viruses/trojans. What is your opinion?

    Firefox is better, safer browser, than IE.
    Kaspersky is much more reliable AV program, than Norton, which I personally dislike.
    It's obviously your choice.
    Would you like to proceed with 8 steps, or you fell, you're fine?

    I don't know?

    My weird logic was that if it had maybe infected firefox I might eliminate it by uninstalling firefox and then doing a clean install of firefox. Do you suggest that I complete the steps...thinking that Norton may just not be finding the problems?

    Possible. Completing all steps won't hurt and it'll give you a peace of mind.
