Mod edit: Moved to Win 8 from AII,not malware ~~boopme

Every time I open Internet Explorer 10 on a Windows 8 laptop, it pops up with a message "A program on your computer has corrupted your default search provider setting for Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer has reset this setting to your original search provider, Bing (www.bing.com). Internet Explorer will now open Search Settings, where you can change this setting or install more search providers."
 
Things I have tried so far:
Running Malwarebytes
Running Norton 2014 (updated)
Running ADWCleaner
Running JRT
Running RKill
Resetting IE10 defaults (In Internet Options>Advanced>Reset...)
Checking the User Shell Folders AppData registry key
And the fix that commonly fixes the problem, deleting the CREDHIST file in the %appdata%\Microsoft\Protect folder
 
And it's still popping up. Any suggestions?

Did you ever resolve the problem? I am having the same problem and can't seem to find anyone who's been able to fix it :(

Have you tried updating to IE 11 ? 

 

If you have another browser, does it happen on that ?

I haven't tried moving to IE 11. I can use Google Chrome without the issue. Perhaps it's time to let go of IE...

I think that I would prefer to follow the advice from Chris Cosgrove or dump Chrome and use Firefox ..........

 

Please download Temp File Cleaner by Old Timer
Usage Instructions:

1.Download TFC from the download link above and save the file on your desktop.
2.Close ALL running applications as TFC will terminate them before attempting to clean up the temporary files.
3.Double-click on the TFC icon.
4.When the program opens, click on the Start button.  TFC will terminate the Explorer process and all running applications and then begin the process of cleaning out all of your temp folders.
5.When done, press OK > Exit, and reboot your computer and finish the cleanup..............
Note: After removing temp files, the computer may show to be slow than usual, but it will improve once the cache is rebuild.
