Removing easylifeapp

I have easlifeapp.com on my Google bar. It is an icon that looks like a
house with with a roof. It appears this is probably a virus according to
a Google search. There are some suggestions how to remove it, but I'd
really like to know if it is a virus, and why wouldn't MSE have caught
it? I noticed it a few days ago when it appeared as a tab on my Win 7
Google window.

Well, look around a bit for a solution.

Why not upload the file sprotector.dll to virustotal.com and have
it scanned ? That might tell you whether it is a PUP (potentially
unwanted program), or something stronger.

You should visit sites like AVcomparatives, if you want
the absolutely strongest protections. There are probably
40 or 50 products out there, and some are better than others.
For example, in the chart here, Kaspersky did pretty well.
This site also used to host PDF files with more details
of the test results. You need to spend a bit of time
reviewing the various tests, to understand what the
products are doing for you. (They run a couple different
kinds of tests, and this is just one test result. Not
all of them.)

I had Kaspersky at one time, but I was clicking dialog boxes
so frequently (100 times a day), I got sick of it after a while.
And asking for help from their live chat tech support was a
waste of time. When the subscription ran out, I bailed.
The problem specifically in my case, is calls to the system random
number generator, each call would trigger an alert from Kaspersky,
which wasn't right. Lots of programs make such calls when they
start up. And I was clicking like crazy because of it. And the
tech support pretended there was no such problem, and I was
imagining things.

On my version of FF, the little house brings up the Firefox start page.

Some confusion here. Anyone care to clear it up?

I wasn't complaining, just informing. I actually had to find out what
the li'l house pointed to, as I detest anything other than a blank
start page.

OP's li'l house seems to have been hijacked.

Since .com usually is a web page address, I have to agree wiht you.

To the OP: in Firefox, go to Tools | Options, click on the General tab,
and change your home page to what you want. You can just fiddle with it
a bit - it's not exactly self-explanatory, but not difficult.

If you have trouble, i.e. the home page won't change or stay changed,
Google for how to remove a homepage hijacker.
