This item has taken over my home page. It professes to be a search engine that finds the best answers for you from yahoo & google.
I didn't want it, but it arrived anyway, and I can't get rid of it. I have run Superantispyware, Malwarebytes, avast, to no avail.I have run cc cleaner, added it to cookiewall. On Internet explorer properties it's listed as a shortcut, has probably 100 numbers and letters attached.I deleted all that.
Under tools> internet properties> my home page is still listed as http://my.yahoo.com/?mkg=015
In spyware blaster, and superantispyware, I have the boxes checked not to allow the home page to be changed, but it changes anyway.
In the address line, if I remove the nationzoom, and put in the yahoo address, I get yahoo, then check the "make yahoo my home page", everything works fine until I close the page. When reopened, I get the bleeping nationzoom. In the "about us", it claims to be violeter inc.; Redwood City, California.
I downloaded a copy of Quicktime from apple and got several google things, I didn't realize I was getting. I have removed as many as I have found. I have spent two days trying to get rid of this without success.It may have been in apple quicktime download, without listing it. I would suggest you never purposely download it, unless you're above average with tinkering.
Thank to anyone that wants to be of help.
