I spent 3 hours trying to get rid of abuchak.....none of the fixes worked. Then I just installed a new google toolbar. It took 30 seconds..No more abuchak!

Question owner

Finally got my homepage back by replacing Firefox 6 with 4 and installing Google toolbar. My bookmarks and the settings have no problems as feared and they are all still intact. Thank you.

I had to do a "Day Before" restore. There are Abuchuck cookies in your 'Temp" folder.

It's become quite a nuisance. I even changed the settings on my computer to a "Prompt" before cookies from an unknown source was being loaded...IT didn't work.

The fix is simple.

Step 1: In your address bar type in about:config PRESS GO or ENTER

Step 2: You will get a warning button, click continue (I'll be careful, I promise)

Step 3: At the top of the page that loads there is an input bar called 'Filter,' in that text box type: keyword.url

Step 4: The keyword.url line should come up, under value, double click the 'abuchak' address, you will get a pop-up box.

Step 5: Change the link in the pop-up box from the abuchak link to another search provider. For Google, change this link to:


Yahoo: http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=%s

Step 6: Click 'Ok' and you are all set!

NOTE: You can change this keyword.url link to other providers too... to find the keyword url for other providers, I would suggest you Google keyword.url + service provider (or site) name to try to find the keyword url for your choice (ie; bing, etc).

1.Delete the Firefox

2.Copy the document which I want to keep.

3.Delete the affected account.

4.Creat a new account and dowload firefox using IE.

Hope it can help anyone eles.
