Go to add/remove programs and remove ::

Xvidly, Search Protect by conduit, Free Download Manager, Wajam, Get Lyrics, PricePeep, xVidly1 Toolbar and any other recently installed or unknown programs from your computer.

 

Remove Xvidly Toolbar extensions from Firefox.
At the top of the Firefox window, click the orange Firefox button, then select Add-ons.

Select the Extensions tab, then remove Xvidly1 , Wajam, Get Lyrics, PricePeep  and any other unknown extensions from Mozilla Firefox.

Xvidly Toolbar may have added additional extensions which you will need to remove. I recommend that you remove any unwanted or unknown extensions from Mozilla Firefox.

 

Reset your default search engine and home page from Conduit to their default.

To reset your search engine and homepage to their default, use the SearchReset extension.This add-on is very simple: on installation, it backs up and then resets your search preferences and home page to their default values, and then uninstalls itself. This affects the search bar, URL bar searches, and the home page.
You can download SearchReset from the below link, and then it just needs to be installed to revert Firefox to its default settings.

Then::  Run AdwCleaner....instructions and link are here::

and then:: Junkware removel tool ::

Once you have downloaded Junkware Removal Tool, please double-click on the JRT.exe icon,

If Windows prompts you as to whether or not you wish to run Junkware Removal Tool, please allow it to run.

Please be patient as this can take a while to complete (up to 10 minutes) depending on your system’s specs
When the scan by Junkware Removal Tool is completed, a log will be displayed with the malicious files and registry keys that were removed from your computer.

 

Follow this with a Quick scan of MalwareBytes...::

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
