I have incurred a browser hijacker that I can't seem to get rid of as no anti virus that I've tried will recognise it. The hijacker is defaultsearch.nchuser. The 'Refresh Firefox button is not working at the moment. Please help me to remove this pest. Thank you.

You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

Run most or all of the listed free to use malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
