spigot-yhp-ff virus on IE and Chrome


Recommended Posts

When starting up IE or Chrome I am directed to a 'Yahoo' homepage with the URL ending spigot-yhp-ff.

 

I have tried several of the malware removal options indicated in the forums but the issue is still there. There is no evidence of any 'spigot' files under 'program files' and the issue does not show up in my McAfee security scan.

 

Can anyone help?
