Question

Btsearch, avg.name homepage removal

I downloaded the youtube.downloader file under the demonoid bit torrent disguise. Firefox was is my default browser. Even after uninstalling the downloader, the btsearch, avg.name kept coming up as my homepage. Antivirus and Malware will not detect this. I started up in safe mode, uninstalled firefox, and used IE as to download firefox again. Problem still existed. I uninstalled again, then did a file search of "Mozilla" on my hard drive. I came across a Mozilla Firefoxoverride config file. I deleted this file reloaded firefox and works fine. All the other support sites take you through the registries, downloading software, etc... blah blah blah. I just wanted to put this out there to help anyone else coming across this annoying problem. This may not fix your issue, but it is a possibility to try.
