The unknown toolbar Systweak Toolbar is installed to my Firefox but I cannot remove it. I sometimes get blank pages and sometimes forced to visit unwanted promoted sites. Is it a redirect? How can I do to get rid of it?

Uninstall related programs in Control Panel, delete dropped add-ons in web browser, clear cookies and history, and remove dropped registry files especially those suspicious ones. Hope this helps!

Yep but sad. It is actually a malicious program that causes redirects. If you have downloaded any program before the problem appears, you should uninstall it. You should delete all unwanted browser add-ons especially those related to this toolbar. Then I advise you to show hidden files by setting the Folder Option and search and remove files like %StartMenu%\Programs\random.lnk, %AppData%\result.db. Check the registry entries and clear unknown files as well: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Systweak Toolbar, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer\run\Random.exe
Hope this helps you! :)
