How get rid of safesearch.net program which I annot get rid of???

Posted

There is a program called safesearch (safesearch.net) which comes with internet explorer that is messing everything up and I cannot uninstall or get rid of it after hours of work. I highly suspect that it is really invasive and doing a lot of damage. I am not a computer tech. but these people should be shut down. Can you resolve my and many others problem with this program. NOTE: in have internet browser using foxfire as my default.
