This worked for me!!
Do a "searchqu" search of your computer with windows explorer, find the following files:
SearchquWebSearch, searchquband.dll, searchqudtx.dll
Right click and delete them.
Open Firefox and reset your home page to what you prefer.
Since I did this I always get the home page i want when i start Firefox.
i actually dont have a firefox but i do have windows. yeah yeah sue me for being in the wrong crowd or something. anyway i had to do a project for school (long story) and i downloaded a free trial for a music editing program. now every time i go to google it transports me to searchqu, every time i open a new tab it goes to searchqu. cany ou believe that! i cat even go to my TAB page cause of searchqu. i know this is just another problem and not anoter solution and "firefox beats windows" stuff, but i have to say this so people would be aware that firefox isnt the problem, and it's not just the only victim in this problem
I did the above (did the search through Windows Explorer for "searchqu" and deleted any files containing that phrase) and I also had to search for and delete any programs containing "datamngr"/data manager. Finally back to regular Firefox start up page!
i did it!!! on any browser go to tools,click options and see home page! look for default ............then click!! on default!!! ok and ease to do it!! the....http://www.searchqu.com/406 is going to disappear!!!! like magic!!!
I will hunt searchqu down and crush it out of existence (or at least my computer)
I'm running Win XP and have found a solution to this problem. The Norton Utilities software has a 'disk cleanup' function. I ran this to get rid of all nonwindows code in my computer. Afterwards, I edited the program registry. using START>RUN and typing REGEDIT into the dialog box for the program name. Using the 'edit' function and the 'find' function in REGEDIT, I located all instances of the string 'searchqu/406',Changing all of them to 'google.com'. Just for good measure, I ran the registry scanning function in my Norton Utilities software. The problem hasn't come back. I then changed my homepage back to my ISP's homepage. The problem hasn't come back, even after closing the browser
None of those things helped me but I was able to find http://deletemalware.blogspot.com/2011/05/how-to-r
I found an easy solution I deleted Fire fox whilst in safe mode then I installed google, when fire fox find a fix , I WILL RETURN Tommouse
