My son aquired the gala redirect bug 2 days ago and has apparently tried to remove it on his own :) He d/l several programs in an attempt to remove it (Glary,Iobit and idk what.) I can tell you that attempting to do a search results in search settings v1.2.3 Spigot inc. installation windows open but nothing installs.I would really appreciate it if you could direct me to the correct software and ideas on solving these issues.

Idk if the gala files are still installed.I can tell you he tried :

Open the Start menu, then select Run...

- In the blank next to Open, type "c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc" without the quotes, then hit OK.

- Select the Tools menu (toward the top, between Favorites and Help)

- Select Folder Options in the Tools menu, then click the View tab

- Under Advanced Settings, select the radio button beside "Show hidden files and folders"

- Uncheck the box next to "Hide protected operating system files..."

- A warning window will appear, select Yes, then hit OK

- Right-click the file named "hosts" and select Properties.

- Under the General tab, uncheck the box next to Read-only (if it is blank, leave it as is).

- Hit OK.

- Right-click the file named "hosts" again and select Open-With

Oh he also used SF IE Restorator,his friend suggested it would repair the search settings v1.2.3 spigot inc issues. :P So he ran all repairs including Winsock.

Hi,

Download OTL to your Desktop

  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • Check the box that says Scan All Users.
  • Download the following file scan.txt to your Desktop. Click here to download it. You may need to right click on it and select "Save"
  • Double click inside the Custom Scan box at the bottom
  • A window will appear saying "Click Ok to load a custom scan from a file or Cancel to cancel"
  • Click the Ok button and navigate to the file scan.txt which we just saved to your desktop
  • Select scan.txt and click Open. Writing will now appear under the Custom Scan box
  • Click the Quick Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
    • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
    • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time and post them in your topic
