I need to reset Firefox as I have Search Pile infecting my browser. I have run Malware bytes and Spy Hunter 4 but it has not alleviated the problem. If I go to my search engine and then open another tab, then Search Pile will be there. What can I do?

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
