Hi. I recently purchased a Dell OptiPlex 760 refurb and am very pleased with it. My intention is to only put a few programs on it and keep junk from it. Quicken, Office 365, Turbo Tax, yahoo email, etc
I am not sure if it is related but I tried to download Adobe Flash Player to watch the NCAA basketball games. I went thru the installation and each time I tried to play a game the message came up that I needed to install Flash Player. I never did see it in my programs list.
Anyway, I seem to have the Search Conduit Hijacker. It changed my home page. I saw this and changed it back. At the time I did not know I had the infection. Also when I open a new tab in IE it takes me to Trovi. McAfee doesn't let it proceed. I have seen some sites that show how to fix it but I am afraid I may destroy some important files. The computer seems to work OK otherwise.
I would appreciate you advice and assistance.
