Hey,

 

Got a new one and can't quite find any good info about it.

 

this is definately a browser hijack, that looks like it came as a part of downloading file compression software.  Of course I may never know.

...Anyone know abou this speedial.com homepage hijacker?   It is in Firefox and Internet Explorer and Chrome.

 

Thanks!

 

-Y

Hello yaddow -

 

Clean up Extensions -

 

Try the below options first, as this can often be removed and you can change your own Home Page back.

 

1. Go to Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel or Programs and Features if using Vista/Windows 7/8. From within Add/Remove Programs look for anything related, and select Remove.
Note that the name shown (speedial.com) can often be replaced by several unknown Add-ons.

 

You can also Google "speedial.com", and they may have their own uninstaller included.

 

2. Open your browser and disable (uncheck) all extensions. Make a list, then one by one, re-enable each extension to see if the pop-ups start appearing again with that particular extension. Once you identify the responsible extension...permanently remove it but let me know which one it was so I can update our list.
