I know this topic has been posted many times. Normally, I'm careful when downloading, but somehow Safe Search has been installed and I can't get rid of it! I have scanned my computer with Malware Bytes, but it's still there. :smash: My computer is running slow, hanging up and my homepage is always changing to Bing. So, please guide me through the process!!!! :bowdown:

First off, see if you can see this "Safe Search" (which I assume is Conduit Safe Search) in the Control Panel under "Uninstall a Program" or something like that. If it is there, go ahead and download IOBit Uninstaller. Then uninstall "Safe Search" and run a Powerful Scan afterwards. After that, disable/remove any browser extensions in your browser related to "Safe Search".

Sorry if I snap at you. I can't stand stupid for more than 5 minutes at a time.

There's nothing under "uninstall a program". Sometimes, it installs a program, but I will uninstall it and no extensions.

Huh. Is this Conduit Safe Search we are talking about here?


Also check and see if this will get rid of it. http://www.bitdefender.com/solutions/adware-removal-tool-for-pc.html

And please in future do not use any IObit product, they can do more harm than good .
