    Hi guys,

    As the title states I have an ongoing issue with a browser hijacker, mainly in that whenever I try to open a new tab on chrome it redirects to default-search.net. I have run HitmanPro/MalwareBytes and Adwcleaner and all of them tell me that my system is safe although the issue remains, I am obviously doing something wrong and I have exhausted the list of options known to me, so I hope somebody here can help me.

    I will post any logs required if necessary.

    Any help would be truly appreciated, cheers!

    Wrong forum. You need to post in the SPECIALIST Malware Forum - but only after having first carried out all the steps in the Read & Run Me First Guide, then attached the resulting scan logs in a new thread there.

    EDIT: Great minds think alike! I was typing this while Eldon was doing the same!

    And by the way, Welcome to Major Geeks!

    Just a friendly heads up - you are still not doing what we suggested. You must post all the scan logs required from the RRMF guide - not just the one you have posted in your new Specialist thread. The experts can only help you if you do all the steps in the guide. You MUST post all the logs, not just say 'they're fine'.
