Cannot remove bing.vc start page.

Veröffentlicht

I have tried everything I can find to stop bing.vc from opening as the start page in firefox version 39 and so far nothing has worked. I am unable to find any reference to in in about:config; a refresh of firefox did not help; no add-ons refer to it and conduit or search protect do not appear in uninstall programs in control panel. No malware removal tool has any effect on it and I have used all that were recommended on the Mozilla support site. Help please!!

Bookmark and use this; Mozilla Search Reset {web link} This add-on is very simple: on installation, it backs up and then resets your search preferences and home page to their default values, and then uninstalls itself. This affects the search bar, URL bar searches, and the home page.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I tried everything in the order you suggested and with the exception of Settings Guard, which has been removed by its author, I had no luck. Bing.vc still reigns supreme over my start page. I can't even find any reference to it in all of Firefox through a search of everything. I don't know what to try next but this thing can't be unremoveable can it? Would dropping back a version or two of Firefox be worth a try? I am using the Beta, version 39, currently.

Are you using the built in Firefox about:home page?

I had a stroke and can't be as helpful as I could. I've called the big guys to help you. Good luck.


about:preferences#search<enter> in the address bar. If it is listed, remove it.

No, I am not using the about:home Firefox start page. I am using Yahoo.com as my start page. I have tried the Preferences section and removed Bing from my search listing. It lists Yahoo as my home page and I have also run Malware bytes, Ccleaner, Spybot S and D, Super Spyware Blaster and others recommended online. I have also scanned with AVG. None of these have picked up anything suspicious. I am going to try an online scanner like Panda Cloud AV. Thanks again for your help.

 For some unknown reason, Bing.vc is gone.  Don't have a clue what I did but something worked.  Your help was greatly appreciated.
