Yesterday, the home page for Google Chrome began defaulting to the above reverenced URL. I ran an AVG scan, Malwarebytes, and Ad-Aware, but nothing is fixing the issue. I went in and checked my program files and the only one I didn't recognize was an iLivid which I have uninstalled. This also did not fix the issue. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide. I am currently using Windows XP.

You will need to go to tools>manage add-ons in Internet Explorer and click on toolbars and extensions. Disable/delete searchqu and anything from Bandoo Media. Then click on search providers. Make Bing or Google the default and then click on Searchqu and choose disable suggestions. You should be able to remove it. Do the same for any remainders of iLivid and check the add-ons of other browsers.

These kinds of apps are often attached as a free extra in other downloads or installations. Always check for any additions.
