I have tried paid Norten, defender removal tool, malwarebytes. I have a spare cloned HD (apricorn)  but it is on that also.I have scanned for hours but it is still there and now the search button on the main firfox page does not work. This is what I tried...

 

Step 2Remove from Mozilla Firefox

  • Start Firefox and type ‘about:config’ in the address bar and hit ‘Enter’.
  • Now type ‘keyword.URL’ in the search box to find this entry, right click on it and select ‘Modify’.
  • Leave the parameter box empty or write something other than what is set.
  • Next type ‘browser.search.defaultenginename’ in the search box to find this entry and reset it to your favorite search engine.
  • In the next step, type ‘browser.search.selectedEngine’ in the search box and reset it to something other than what is set.
  • The last thing you need to do is search for ‘browser.newtab.url’ and modify it to ‘about:newtab’.
  • Now restart Firefox to complete the removal process.

Any suggestions?  Thanks for any help

Hello looks like its hooked onto something and will require a deeper look.
Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.

Now that you have properly posted a malware log topic, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on, the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

Louis
