    This was very Helpful. I clicked on that stupid TelevisionFanatic thing thinking it would help me find shows and stuff that I wanted, But instead, it just put a toolbar that I’m not used to and didn’t want on my Firefox. And I started freaking out because I am known to break computers from viruses. Thank you so much!
