How to remove "http://bing.vc/?r=15443&lnk=ext2".

Posted

Its the start up page. I reset Firefox but nothing happen. I uninstall Firefox and reinstall it but no change. I've tried malwarebytes, Hitman Pro, Spy Hunter, Rouge Killer but nothing happen. I searched for it on Google and didn't find any solution for this "http://bing.vc/?r=15443&lnk=ext2".

See if this helps you - http://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-bing-search/

The most important part is to get rid of whatever carried that 'crap' onto your PC - source vs symptoms.

Usually the malicious programs that promote Bing Search are installed alongside a freeware software (video recording/streaming, download-managers or PDF creators) that had bundled into their installation this browser hijacker. This browser hijacker is also bundled within the custom installer on many download sites (examples: CNET, Brothersoft or Softonic), so if you have downloaded a software from these websites, chances are that the Bing was installed during the software setup process. Very often users have no idea where did it come from, so it’s not surprising at all that most of them assume that Bing Search is a virus.

Get rid of anything in the Control Panel > Programs & Features that you don't specifically remember installing yourself.

See this Google search for other articles about removing that garbage.
