Please Help Me Remove "Spigot" Related Malware


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

my comp info: Windows 8.1 Pro / 64bit / google chrome Version 32.0.1700.102 m

 

I've read many forums dealing with this problem. I am trying to use my normal google browser but this " http://search.yahoo.com/?type=599486&fr=spigot-yhp-ch  " comes up instead EVERY time... I have uninstalled google chrome many times and reinstalled. It does not work..! I notice an issue with this "spigot" thing that people are mentioning. I downloaded anti malware softwares and what not but I can't seem to get rid of the problem (don't understand either). I don't see the spigot name anywhere any more but my browser keeps changing. I would like the help of one of you professionals PLEASE.

 

Let me know all of the info you need. I have: Malwarebytes, adwcleaner, ccleaner, roguekiller, and security check downloaded...

That host file if used to by-pass activation of Adobe products, aka as Piracy.

Remove any pirated software, cracks, keygens and restore the original Microsoft host file.

If you don't know how to do this, ask your "little cousin".

Once you do that, return to the forum for help.
