Brower hijacked - bestsearchforever.biz

A google searched did not return a lot of results.

 

Browser has been hijacked to a site, bestsearchforever.biz.

 

Ran Norton Power Eraser, Bootable Recovery Tool and Malwarebytes to no effect.

 

Any ideas. Thanks

Re: Brower hijacked - bestsearchforever.biz

Are the data in the folders

Folder Found : C:\ProgramData\boost_interprocess
Folder Found : C:\ProgramData\FreeRIP

from programs that you know and trust?


If yes, make a backup of them (on another place) before we start to delete Adware with AdwCleaner.

 

Click on AdwCleaner button "Delete".
Then auto restart of your pc happens.

 

After restart  create a new logfile and post it here.

Is your browser still hijacked?

Looking at the other thread you may have more to do on the system in terms of this thread and cleaning as NIS 2012 and 2013 are not happy.

 

Even though the visual redirect problem has been fixed.
