how do i get rid of the findwide virus
the old story. i downloaded some free software to convert a file and it dumped FINDWIDE virus on me. the virus keeps changing my homepage and controls which search engine i use.
Apologies for this. I know it can be frustrating.
Good news : This extension will reset your about:newtab page to default, along with a few other settings. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/searchreset/?src=ss

Kindly let me know the outcomes

Please refresh your installation to default : Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings
Yes. Yes. Yes. The refresh firefox and add ons did the trick. Thanks very much. Great service. I really appreciate the help.
