It's Bruce Langston.

I wanted to install Skype and wasn't paying attention to what popped up.  I clicked a few times and ended up with a maxwebsearch redirect.

I ran malwarebytes, and it found a bunch of stuff.  I quarantined it all and restarted.


I still have the redirect and yahoo and google don't load.


I've usually been able to fix these before but not this time.





meant to follow.
