I suggest that you ignore the previous and go through this procedure.

Download the following Adwcleaner created by Xplode
https://ccm.net/download/download-24088-adwcleaner
Launch it (for Windows 7 and 8, click right to run as administrator)
Click on delete
Post the log C:\Adwcleaner[Sx].txt on this thread.

1.Hi friend,open Avast,go to (Tools) > Browser Cleanup,delete all things you find there.

2.Also,you can configure manually Firefox,go to (Options > General),and type in the Home_Page:something like "www.google.com"

3.Change the search provider in the Search Bar of Firefox,for something like Google.

4.Also,go to (Add-Ons > Extensions) and disable all things that look suspicious like "wiki tool bar" or "Safe Search tool-bar" or "Safe Tab"...You got me right?


(Please,copy and paste the bad URL of the tab...Thank you bro...Good Luck.)

Hi friend,you can download Avast free anti-virus (If you are not an advanced user).This program have and very powerful tool to remove malicious tool bars and malware.

I recommend you to first uninstall AVG and then install Avast.Do a boot time scan,when you problem is solved,you can continue with Avast or can reinstall AVG.

Hello Leonnyx,
How are you doing?
I loaded Avast on my computer and when i open firefox and i click at new tap, i always saw the automatic fake link address in the new tab address bar, but just that it was can reach that stupid page because avast blocked it but i still see that address in the address bar.
This mean that, if i remove avast, the persist will appear again when i click new tab.
Thanks you so much for your concerning

So you have decided to ignore my advice of Adwcleaner! Pity! Now you must live with consequences.

I respect you way, which kind of complicated in my opinion, but lets see. If you succeed, hats to you for all the work.

P.S. I appreciate people such as you who care to help and who, like you are devoted. After all the end result is the one that counts.
