Hi,

I have a f... "Do Searches" malware in Firefox. Whenever I restart my Firefox it opens this url: http://www.dosearches.com/?utm_source=b&utm_medium=vit&utm_campaign=eXQ&utm_content=sc&from=vit&uid=SAMSUNGXHD321KJ_S0MQJ90Q229812&ts=1382531931

If I cannot solve this problem I shall have to stop using Firefox.

I tried many ways, but nothing helped: - Help > Troubleshooting information > Reset Firefox - Restart with addons disabled

I tried to read on net how to remove this f... malware, but nothing helped (e.g. https://www.google.hu/search?q=how+to+get+rid+of+dosearches&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&gws_rd=cr&ei=Y1VpUoLVDoruswa3r4DADQ)

Many thanks!

Pour essayer d'enlever Dosearch, j'ai essayé AdwCleaner, CCleaner, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware...

RIEN NE L'ENLEVE !

Si quelqu'un a une solution qui fonctionne, je prends !

I just had to remove it too.

It came imbedded in another program even though I thought I opted out of all the extras.

I think I did three things over the last couple days.

1. Reset the Home Page in Tools, Options, General TAB.

2. In Search window upper right on my tool bar, I used Manage Search Engines and deleted it.

3. This one was toughest to find. Firefox has an Add-On that will remove it from hijacking new tabs. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/searchreset/

I think I have it cleaned up.

I also used Malwarebytes, but I don't think it removed any of the Dosearch residue. It was all in Firefox locations.

Note this sort of software may also amend the shortcut used by Firefox for details and solution see my recent post /questions/979036#answer-50668/questions/979036#answer-506688
