if you have the program hypercam installed then bigseekpro is installed as hypercam toolbar in add remove programs

1. In the Firefox Location Bar, Where you enter the address of web pages, enter about:config

2. A "This might void your warranty" warning may appear. Click "I'll be careful, I promise!"

3. In the Filter text box, enter keyword.url

4. Right click keyword.url and choose reset.

You can run and update the following free anti virus software:

1. Malwarebytes (Free version) - http://www.malwarebytes.org

Re: how do you remove bigseekpro from Firefox permanently

Hi, friends ! To remove bigseekpro, u have to search the registry with regseeker and then delete all entries found. I had 13 entries with bigseekpro and regseeker removed all of them for me and now firefox doesnt show bigseekpro as start page any more, and i suppose IE doesnt, either. Hope to have been of help. Best wishes

I used regedit and it worked perfectly. Not many people have the guts to edit the register file, but I find it is the only way to get rid of some nuisance programs. I think you have the best solution! Thanks!

what did you search for in regedit? I can't find anything with "big seek pro" or "bigseekpro".

This site explains very good how to recreate default firefox search with google ... but remember you may have to remove some addon which created the toolbar in first place as well .. for me it was some video converter ..

OK...I had the same problem! Sorted now...follow these steps:

1.Open another tab and type in about:config. Click Accept and you'll be directed to another page

2. here in the search box type keyword.URL

3. a string will appear.

4. Double click on it and paste this : http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=utf-8&q=

5. click OK and close the tab.

6. Now go to tools>Options>change your home page to default or type in your favorite website as homepage. Click OK to close options.

7. Now go to tools>Addons. Delete any unnecessary/unknow addons that are there..example: express toolbar.

8. All set!!
