Hello, what browser are you using?
 
ADW Cleaner
Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
  • Double-click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R0].txt) will open in Notepad for review.
  • After reviewing the log, click on the Clean button.
  • Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
  • Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.
  • After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S0].txt) will open automatically.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.
  • -- Note: The contents of the AdwCleaner log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name that you recognize and know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, return to AdwCleaner before cleaning...all detected items will be listed (and checked) in each tab. Click on each one and uncheck any items you want to keep (except you cannot uncheck Chrome and Firefox preferences lines).

Are you referring to Mozilla?

Hi, Thanks for your replies. Yes, I was using Mozilla, but when I downloaded some "family tree"   I also picked up that horrible V9 search, too.... 

 

I finally did get rid of it by installing and running malware bytes, which did the trick. Until then, every time I tried to delete it from my programs, it would pop up again.

 

Again, thanks.

Great!1 When installing Apps.. Choose Custom and not the Recommended install// This way you can see and uncheck any of those fun extras they try to slip in.. like toolbars and search pages.
