Nothing I have read anywhere from anyone has worked to get rid of this pest!!!My husband finally had to take over and get rid of EVERYTHING FIREFOX (uninstall bookmarks,toolbars and everything) and then re-install everything. Now it seems to be gone.

I spent 3 hours trying to get rid of abuchak.....none of the fixes worked. Then I just installed a new google toolbar. It took 30 seconds..No more abuchak!

Finally got my homepage back by replacing Firefox 6 with 4 and installing Google toolbar. My bookmarks and the settings have no problems as feared and they are all still intact. Thank you.

I had to do a "Day Before" restore. There are Abuchuck cookies in your 'Temp" folder.

It's become quite a nuisance. I even changed the settings on my computer to a "Prompt" before cookies from an unknown source was being loaded...IT didn't work.

The fix is simple.

Step 1: In your address bar type in about:config PRESS GO or ENTER

Step 2: You will get a warning button, click continue (I'll be careful, I promise)

Step 3: At the top of the page that loads there is an input bar called 'Filter,' in that text box type: keyword.url

Step 4: The keyword.url line should come up, under value, double click the 'abuchak' address, you will get a pop-up box.

Step 5: Change the link in the pop-up box from the abuchak link to another search provider. For Google, change this link to:

http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&q=

Yahoo: http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=%s

Step 6: Click 'Ok' and you are all set!

NOTE: You can change this keyword.url link to other providers too... to find the keyword url for other providers, I would suggest you Google keyword.url + service provider (or site) name to try to find the keyword url for your choice (ie; bing, etc).

GOOD LUCK!!! Smiley Tongue
