Hi. Often URLs like "http://search.safefinder.com/?st=sc&q=" turns to be my homepage. As I disinfect my PC, and remove the URL from my firefox, it reappears.

Posted

As I run my firefox browser, instead of my preset homepage, the route " file:///C:/ProgramData/ExtTags/ff.NT " appears in the Firefox address bar and the page automatically is redirected to another URLs like " http://search.safefinder.com/?st=sc&q= " . As much I disinfect my PC and block these URLs in my Kaspersky, and remove these URLs from "Forefox Opetions:Homepage" it's no good and again and again they just reappear. Even I deleted the folder indicated by that route in the Drive C, but that's no use.

What should I do to get rid of them?

Thank you

Mori
