Trustedsurf.com Browsers Hijacked

Recommended Posts

Currently running Malwarebytes Premium (latest update) and trial of Anti-Exploit. It was my understanding that they run side-by-side. Recently installed freeware software. I am careful to read each box along the installation path. I never agree to install additional options. Next time I opened IE 11, I was greeted by a different home page than my usual Google.com. It was Trustedsurf.com. Checked my browser startup page, which was still set on Google. Cleaned temp files, restarted and same thing happened. Checked and Firefox, the same. Did a full scan with MalwareBytes, which came up with ZERO. Apparently, MalwareBytes is blind to the fact that there is a hijacker on my machine. Anti-Exploit is also blind that there has been a change to two of the products it is supposed to protect and monitor.

Any ideas on this as to why both products are not seeing this hijack??
