I try to eliminate this registry key because pctool's spyware doctor says it's a Trojan generic. But it reappears every time I launch firefox

Thanks for your fast response, Roger:
Have you hear of any malware or Trojan generic attached to firefox that behaves like this? I have run every antivirus and antispyware trying to find the little SOB and the only one that detects it is pctool's spyware doctor, but only after I start firefox and the key gets installed, so is kinda useless...
(BTW, excellent website)

My problem disappeared when I changed my anti virus from AGV free to Pctools Anti virus Free. Maybe that did the trick, but I'm not totally sure. not other anti spyware (not even super antispyware) detected it.

0 = Task-Manager can be executed. (Standard)
1 = Task-Manager can not be started (set by malware infection)
