I have been hijacked by searchfusion. I tried to do a manual delete but did not find the regedit things suggested by a variety of websites. I do not want to download a "fix it" program that I will be charged for or don't trust that they are what they say they are. Can someone please tell me how to get searchfusion out? It is not under programs to be uninstalled on the control panel and does not appear in any searches on my computer so I can delete it. Thanks

Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.

You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.

Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Bookmark and use this; Download the 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.

None of these things detected search fusion! It's still there and I can't get rid of it.
