Probably 'malware' (installed by software you wanted to have)
when some software is installed, 'free' software is also installed, Like toolbars and security software. They always run in the background, or when a browser is opened. Then they 'maintain' settings (I.e. search page & home page settings).
-disable toolbars in browser (that you don't want/use)
-diable/uninstall/remove software/features that you don't use
("always run" / "auto start")
-check your AV: McAfee/AVG/Norton. They also maintain your
search/home address settings.
if you notice new icons by the clock (that you don't need/use) remove/disable/uninstall the problem program.
The toolbars are normally getting information of your surf on the internet. Many toolbars for your browser are already infected with a virus (I did get a virus throu a toolbar) when you install them, this can leave your computer open for hackers. If you use a safe toolbar like google and Live toolbar then it is safe, but other toolbars like them you install when you install a screensaver are many times infected with a virus :O/
IF it is your own internet site you have made, I suggest you chance your password and see if it still happend. IF it do that please contact your site provider and tell them about the problem, it can bee dangerous let other in on your internet site, they can leave virus codes on your toolbar and other places. :O/
Hope that helps IF not then return here Please rate my answer

Ok if you were like me and updated your mcafee security and it updated your siteadvisor it moved it from by your status bar to your toolbar. I uninstalled mcafee internet security, then reinstalled it using the custom setting. After you do that do not install siteadvisor. Once all that is done install mcafee siteadvisor for firefox on its own and this should solve the problem it worked for me.
