I have my homepage set to Google. Just getting started this morning and whenever I click on a new tab, I get this browser instead. I've checked and Google is still set. When I open Firefox, Google comes up but not when I click new tab.

Lab.search.conduit.com   Has a photo of center of Ellen, Honey Boo boo's mom, crap like that. 

Anyone know what I can do to get rid of this? Is it as easy as running my virus and malware programs?

Hi,

You will want to uninstall any Conduit stuff from your computer via Control Panel. Start > Control Panel > Uninstall a Program


You should reset all prefs in about:config to default that contain anything with Conduit You can try to reset the prefs that do that to see if it'll reverse the action

  • Navigate to about:config in your Address Bar
  • Press the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button to proceed
  • Search for conduit and reset all prefs by right clicking and clicking Reset

Last thing,

You can delete a possible user.js file and numbered prefs-##.js files and rename (or delete) the prefs.js file to reset all prefs to the default value including prefs set via user.js and prefs that are no longer supported in the current Firefox release. You can get to the profile folder below:

  • Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory > Show Folder

or

  • Go to about:support and click Show Folder next to Profile Directory.

Make sure that nothing related to Conduit is in your Extensions list (Go to new fx menu > Add-ons > Extensions and remove anything that you don't recognize.
