Suggestion: repair browser settings on PUP removal


Recommended Posts

Last weekend our machine got hit with the Conduit Search Protect PUP.  An MBAM scan removed the unwnated software/malware, but it kept coming back.


It turns out that the solution to that problem was that the broswer settings had been changed so that the homepage, new-tab page, and/or search provider settings for the various browsers (Chrome, IE, and Firefox) had been changed to point to locations that would cause Search Protect to be quickly reinstalled.


I think it would be nice if MBAM would offer to restore these (and maybe other) browser settings to the default settings when a malware cleanup is performed.  A nice PRO addition to the feature would be to record the user's desired settings so those can be restored instead of restoring to defaults.


At the very least MBAM can suggest that the user examine and reset those settings.  Note that some of the settings are in novice unfriendly locations - for Firefox I had to go into about:config and search for "conduit" to get rid of all the settings.
