Yesterday I downloaded a program to export contact pictures from my iPhone. While doing so I accidentally downloaded something called OutfoxTV which had the following weird items associated with it: trovi and search protect. Trovi was redirecting my browser to a google like homepage with a bunch of ads, while search protect was found in the task list. I was able to remove these items easily.
In the process of removing that annoyance, I accidentally deleted my Vuze, upon attempting to reinstall Vuze, I accidentally installed a much more obnoxious Spigot browser hijacker. I have attempted 3 sets of instructions I found online to remove this item, but nothing appears to be working.
I have tried: adwcleaner, malwarebytes anit malware, junk removal tool, farbar recovery scan tool, combofix, hitmanpro, rogue killer, anvisoft smart defender, slim toolbar and cloud system booster.
I am finally throwing in the towel and seeking help!
My browser is still redirecting to a yahoo search page despite the fact that the home page says it is set to google. I have uninstalled Vuze but cannot uninstall the Vuze Remote Toolbar because of some sort of network error that conveniently happens anytime I try to uninstall it (Error 1316).
I do not see anything unusual running in the task list and there does not appear to be any other problems while running my computer.
Please let me know if you can help.
