Search Safer trying to hijack my browser


Recommended Posts

Hello-

 

Let me say upfront I am not a programmer but I do OK. I have been having an issue with Safe Search trying to hijack my browser - I have done all the things I have read on line to do. Run malwarebytes full scan, CCleaner and adwar. Currently malwarbytes is coming up clean but when I turn my computer a box shows up that search safe is trying to change my controls - I see the file it programfiles/pcreg but the malware programs are not picking it up - should I just delete the file? See attached photo with what keeps popping up when I turn my computer on

 

Thank you for your help.

Hello and :welcome: :

 

Work on adware/junkware/malware removal is conducted in a separate, dedicated area of the forum.

 

So, if you think you might be infected, I suggest that you please follow the advice in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
A malware analyst will assist you with looking into your issue.

Thanks,
