Hello, I have recently ran Malwarebytes normally in Quick Scan and then waited a while and came across some kind of malicious software called Hijack.Homepage. So I've decided to remove it and then it told me to restart to remove it. So I did, and after my system restarted I wanted to make sure if it's gone so I scanned it again and then, the same software popped up. So I removed, restarted, scanned again and it's still there. So for a while I've did the same thing over and over again like a maniac and nothing really changed. I've also scanned with Norton 360 and then after the scan the Hijack.Homepage hasn't been detected. So I looked up some stuff about this Hijack.Homepage and found this:

  • Home page or other settings change on your computer. Links are added that point to websites that you'd usually avoid.

  • You can't navigate to certain web pages, such as antispyware and other security software sites.

  • A seemingly endless barrage of ads pops up on your screen.

  • New toolbars or Favorites are installed that give you icons and links to web pages that you don't want.

  • Your computer runs sluggishly. Malicious software can slow down your computer.

But none of these seems to be the problem in my browser. What could be wrong?
