Current situation: My Firefox brower search default is Google. But it has settled into a pattern of being is hijacked to a site named primeinfospot.com. Initially, the search redirection was to several different sites, but now it is just one site. This might be a result of my attempts to remove the hijacker. Chrome and Safari browsers are not hijacked.

Cause: Attempting to get a better corded connection between my Galaxy and MacBook, I downloaded a file named Android.zip from http://d-h.st/nl5l#!/ This included an install of ADB and Fastbooks. This led to an attempted auto-download of Flash, which I rejected. My browser search then was hijacked first to a number of different sites: readysoft, ikolag, ncontentdelivery, everydayconsumers, primeinfospot, search-switch.

Attempts to remove: Looked through plug-ins and extensions in Firefox, but couldn't find anything that looked like the hijacker. Uninstalled/reinstalled Firefox. Scanned with Malwarebytes (report= clear), Went to Mac hard drive > Applications > Library and uninstalled any files installed on Ocotber 24th (when the problem started).

There is a thing called "prime point" that has taken over any browser that I go to and limits my choices. What is it and how do I get rid of it?

This looks to be some sort of gadget from Amazon that limits my browser choices whether I go to Google or any other browser. Annoying...

Hi there, While working on a sound effects site, I somehow downloaded malware to my Mac. Now, every time I do a google search (in the address bar, and also in the google search bar, which I've since just removed), the google search results no longer come up. Instead, I'm redirected to a search engine called: http://search.primeinfospot.com/?tp1=dbc19016-3c27-4231-bf81-d50a9c367fda&kw=sarch

Going through my search history when this happened, it seems it came out of this "Browser Update" (here's the start of the site, removing all the gobbly gook that followed it but maybe but don't click on it to be safe?)
