How to remove websearch.com (websearch Search Engine) from my firefox browser?

Postby bert » 2012-09-21 4:23


I use Mozilla Firefox and my default homepage is yahoo.com. Yesterday, I downloaded a free game online. Then a disaster came to me. My homepage had been taken over by a website named websearch.com. It seems that this website contains its own search engine because my yahoo search disappeared. I tried many ways to solve this problem, but none of them work. I will be crazy if this annoying still pops up to take over my browser. Is there a way to solve this? Thanks in advance.

websearch.com is a malicious browser redirect virus (A fake search engine) that can frequently change your default homepage to websearch.com or mislead you to other unknown websites that may contains many fatal viruses. You should remove it from your computer as soon as possible. To remove it, you may need a professional removal instruction.
