helllo sir/man, I need to remove a certain search engine from my browser,, that probably got into my pc while installing something else.

Posted

From last week i keep on removing a certain serch engine, but it re-appers after i restart my pc or open my brower after and hour or two. Search engine name is Gosearch. Its really annoying to see that search engine.. again and again.. I even checked my installed softwares list but there was nothing with that name there.
