Please delete my two other threads as those mislabled the problem I was actually having. Sorry, I wasn't thinking clearly when I found them.
My issue is that Firefox keeps changing the search engine to Yahoo everytime I turn it back on. This happened after updating utorent and getting Web Companion on my PC.
I removed both utorent and Webcompanion and have used CCleaner and Unhack me to remove suspicious items as well as manually removing all Lavasoft and Web Companion entries in the Registry manually.
The problem is it still keeps changing. Unhack me found a hijacker when I used it, but though it claims it removed it and it's not finding it anymore it still happens. Even deleting Yahoo won't make it stop coming back.
Additionally I have also checked to see whether anything about the shortcut has been changed but it appears to have no additions to it after "firefox.exe".
Would someone have any idea what i should do ?
Edit: Have done the same manual removal from the registry of all yahoo entries. Now it seems that upon being turned on, Firefox does stay on google as the search engine, unless I delete Yahoo Search Engine, in which case it's back and selected when I turn it back on.
