The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded.

"The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded."

For some odd reason my Firefox has started showing the above on my homepage and on other loaded pages in firefox.

I use AVG for protection and it doesnt show any Issues during its scans.

Is there a way I can get rid of this "The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded." alert box?

The only thing that I think has some connection is a Search engine called blekko that appeared on my PC. I never knowingly downloaded this search engine but its appeared anyway.

Can anyone help me out please.

some nasties may have arrived with it? suggest a good sweep with anti malware.

Thanks Johnny, I'll give it a good Sweep.

I cured it...I found a cure here

Url is not Valid fix

It was in my case a Spam free browser addon that came in with a Blekko search engine, it must have piggy backed in from a dodgy download.

anyway..its gone now...I removed it,..phewwwwwwwwww!!
