searchqu

4 posts in this topic

ok so basically, my little sister downloaded bandoo the other day unaware of the searchqu bundling. she decided she didnt like it and removed bandoo but searchqu is still the homepage. we have tried the usual set google to homepage but it reverts everytime we open a new window or tab on firefox. malwarebytes didnt detect this and is unable to do so still. have tried killing all found instances of searchqu with gmer rootkit scanner. also attempted with fileassasin in malwarebytes still there and still hijacking the homepage. HALP ME MBAM FORUMS YOUR MY ONLY HOPE! :)

os is windows 7 home premium 64bit (latest updates)

malwarebytes antimalware pro (latest updates)
