Hi, i'm new here and i'm not really good with technology but i've had my own share fair of problematic browser highjackers in the past, and today I have one that so far has been a thorn in my back.
Its called safe finder it's a browser highjacker that has taken over my computer entirely.
I've known how to deal with these common problems, such as panel control and delete any unwanted program, i know the acronyms of anything that i dont have in my computer i know exactly what i have and what i dont have, and anything strange or different that i wasnt supposed to have was not there, so firstly there was no unwanted program for me to remove. but wait it doesnt end there.
since im using chrome and only chrome i went ahead to my config settings and sure enough i found it lodged there.
on initialization it's set to google so that part is fine.
but on appearance its set as this:
^ that is the initial 'page'.
below that on the search field it's set as websearch instead of google and its set to feed.sonic-search dot com.
that is the browser highjacker that is triggering all of this.
I cant seem to be able to remove it, i've reset my chrome settings i have deleted even my google chrome profile i have done everything to make sure this data gets deleted, im currently running malware bytes scanning my entire computer in hopes that it finds something unwanted but before i finish the scanning i'd like to post this topic to get an overall opinion on this matter.
what should i do to remove this pesky browser highjacker?
I need help, any instructions advices and tips are more than welcome i'll try anything!
