Custom Search 1.0.1 homepage hijacker - google.apsolo.com

Recommended Posts

I innocently downloaded SMRecorder from downloads.cnet.com. It came packaged with a plugin, "Custom Search 1.0.1," that I could not for the life of me delete. After great emails from Snr. Asc. Editor Jason Parker, he (and his team) got me the solution

"1) delete folder C:\Program Files\SMRecorder\scripts,"

(or uninstall the program first. I used Revo [per Jason], set to "advanced install" [fourth option], and selected and deleted all components]).

"2) navigate to %UserProfile%\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ and delete user.js file from [your profile ID.default] folder."

(or, on my computer, a slight variation--the path was C:\Users\Chris\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[profileID].default -- where [profileID] is a string of letters and numbers).

Thank you Jason and your cnet team!
