running Win7; firefox 38.0.1. have used 2 programs to remove dregol:Control Panel & Advanced Uninstaller Pro. Used regedit to remove all references to dregol. It does not appear in Chrome. Removed it as default search. However, it's still there as a 1 click search engine and occasionally used as the search engine.
