Hey, guys

My Firefox has been redirected to Malwarebytes and manual removal both failed. Can anyone here to do me a favor to get rid of this redirect virus. By the way, I've seen there is a post related:, does this removal guide also applies to redirect removal??

Hello, carey. Welcome you here. Have you tried using Anvi Smart Defender to remove the related trojans already? Actually redirect virus like is very stubborn and may be related to rootkits that is very hard to remove. The removal guide here: may also apply to the removal. By the way, apart from using Anvi Smart Defender and TDSSkiller to scan out potential trojans, you may also try to manually remove the components of virus, which can be search engine, add-ons, homepage. In Firefox, you may go follow the below steps to repair the firefox settings to make it right.

Open Mozilla Firefox.

Click tools->add-ons to remove the related add on,

Click on the managifying glass search icon as shown below to select manage search engines and then choose the softonic related search engine and remove it.

Then go to Tools->Options-> General tab, reset the startup homepage or just change it to whichever you like.

Shut down the Firefox and then reopen it to check it out.

Good luck to you and if any further question, please let us know. :geek:
