One of the people in my household in their infinite wisdom obviously sport-Fed the next button on some pop-up they saw somewhere and infected the living @*#( out of this computer (Win 7). Everything appears removed now with exception to in Internet Explorer whenever I search, it now searches directly to www.dnsbasic.com search engine. I've had a go with malwarebytes, I've removed all search engines from IE except for google, disabled and/or uninstalled all add-ons. I've uninstalled the God-forbidden dnsbasics piece of crap from programs but still somewhere it is kicking around on the PC. Any ideas? This seems a very new piece of crap software and so all the posts on google are just 3-4 days old, and not many of them. I was able to remove this for Chrome and it's back to normal. Hmm, seems malwarebytes is old now and not getting updates. I remember lavasoft's product, so I was just about to install it but it looks like it wants to install a bunch of crap also, so going to give microsoft's product a go. EDIT: Fixed it, in case anybody else comes upon this (some on the net still have this issue). I removed all searches except for only google search but it still went to dnsbasics.com. I thought maybe it had bastardized the google search and was hiding, which it turns out it was. I installed bing search and it went fine. I could then remove google (ie insists on having at least one search engine as default) and then reinstalled the google search from the IE website thingy under add-ons and now google is fine.
