I once installed the add-on using my Firefox. And since then I realized that the browser was having ad issues and was consuming too much of RAM!

I mave the decision to uninstall the add-on. Since that day, actually every single day that I turn on my computer, “ ” add-on appears, I have to “remove” it and restart the browser. And everything is then OK. When I restart the computer, the removal process starts up again.

There is something about this application. I don't blame it. But I'm pretty sure I don't have a virus or adware/malware on my computer. Scanned thrice today with different software. Something is happening here. I have the same problem with 1clickdownloader add-on on my Firefox.

Can you please help me about that issue. How can I remove

These add-ons refuse to uninstall because they have a stub somewhere in your computer which is triggered every time you uninstall them. Next time it restarts, the stub (download application) installs them back.

Try running a copy of AdwCleaner or Combofix and the add-ons should be removed. In AdwCleaner leave the options marked.
