I use FireFox, and despite being set to About:Blank (also no trace of it in About:Config) it defaults to either MyStartSearch or MySearch123 on startup. The same also happens on IE.
However, no matter how much searching I do everything comes down to the same thing:
Uninstall affected programs from Programs & Features. - None there.
Everything listed in order of date. Nothing installed for ages. Problems only just began.
Have even removed other older unused programs with Revo.
Scan with Malwarebytes - Done (I have the paid up pro version, which even blocks it when running in AV mode), otherwise, nothing.
Scan with ADWare - Done - Nothing.
Scan with SpyBot - Done - Nothing
Scan with SpyHunter - Avoid like the plague - SpyHunter is SpamWare - it finds 1000s of supposed 'threats' & then demands payment in order to remove them. Then, when you try to uninstall it, it fights back to stop you doing so.
Reset Firefox - Done - Nothing.
Uninstalled Firefox with Revo & did clean reinstall. As soon as I opened it, it's there again.
Can anyone come up with something new - something that WILL get rid of this Hijacker from Hell?
