Taskeng.exe malware is diverting me from my Firefox homepage to Yahoo and I can't figure out how to delete it.

已張貼

I have run scans using Norton Security Suite and Microsoft Safety Scan and cannot get rid of the Taskeng.exe malware. My guess is that because it shares the same name as a legitimate file, the virus software does not recognize it as malware. I also went on line for suggestions and tried opening the computer in Safe Mode to look for a second file with that name, but it does not appear. The Taskeng.exe malware diverts me from my Firefox homepage to Yahoo which slows Firefox when opening and it slows opening other sites as well. Suggestions?
