So last night my computer got infected with surfvox, and honestly it could have come from a few different places, most likely through a proxy I used to reach a site that my government blocks.

Anyway, I downloaded malwarebytes , got rid of it, and now the starting page is no longer surfvox, but whenever I search something it brings me to this "Google custom search" page which is an obvious fake, the image where you would usually see the Google logo is super low res and doest redirect to Google search when clicked on.

All of my browsers have this, edge, chrome, Firefox.

any help?

Resetting a browser back to default settings is usually the quickest and easiest solution.
