Internet Explorer has been hijacked by LAVASOFT SECURESEARCH It has cleverly greyed out the Search Engine "Remove" button, and remains the Default search, even if I try and substitute Google. It always comes back. I cannot find any related terms in my folders,files etc. No .js files either.

I ran combofix and have the report available, but it did not fix my problem.

 

Please tell me how to go about receiving your welcome help ?

Thanks Dark Knight.

AdwCleaner is neat. Combofix is dreadful.

All fixed, thankyou

Adaware is a virus and should be outlawed

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
