Thank you for your quick response. Its some PC optimizer I installed and a conduit toolbar came up.
There's no distinction between add-ons installed by software and add-ons installed by system administrators. That's why you can't remove them from the Add-ons Manager. Usually, it's enough to uninstall the application that the add-on was bundled with. See the support article for details . When software installs a Firefox add-on, it should be disabled and there should be a prompt asking you if you want to enable the add-on . If that doesn't happen, please provide a download link to the offending software.  https://support.mozilla.org/kb/cannot-remove-add-on-extension-or-theme  Bug 476430.
