Preferred Solution: Solved: Bing Bar & search helper extension

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,
I've recently been infected by a Chrome extension that I cannot get rid of. I have had the pleasure of removing many of these types of things over the years, but this one is stumping me.
Was hope someone here might be able to help. The extension is called Search Helper: Preview, Note, Tag, Hide etc.
 
Let me know what other info you might need - didn't want to post a bunch of logs you may not need.
 
I'm running Windows 10
Thanks for taking the time.

Help! How do I permanently remove bing search engine on my computer? I have tried searching for advice on this and nothing helps: Wikihow says to insert an html (well I can't even identify that) someone else said to locate bing in search engine add-ons (it doesn't even show up) and someone else said to type about.config in the filter bar - where is it?? Nothing is showing up as it should according to these gurus.

I am using Firefox. If I use IE bing stays hidden but I like Firefox and don't want this blasted thing on my computer. Any ideas - thanks in advance. Please use nice simple instructions.

Solved:
Guess what? If you use Firefox, here is a nice simple solution that does not remove bookmarks or files. Open Firefox, select help, troubleshooting issues, refresh Firefox. Select refresh only what I want, Firefox will reset to default. When done close window and reset home page. Easy as. FYI a file named Old Firefox Stuff will appear on your desktop in case you need anything from it. Many thanks to Chris for this info.

For the last 24 hours, I have not been able to access my regular Google search engine. Every time I try (and I have tried A LOT) whatever I am looking for takes me to Bing. Once there, I still cannot get to any of the sites.

I have done LOTS of things to correct this, such as:

Searched out help online
Cleaned my cache
Deleted my History
Did system restore (a number of times)
Changed some information in the Hosts file
Searched Google Help for help (problem has occurred a lot - no indication they are concerned)
Upgraded my Google Toolbar
Nothing has worked!

At this point, I am at my wits end!

Please help me.

All of the sudden I ran into major malware issues. My search links in google were redirected to adsites and any website that looked helpful would not be found. Pretty much any website related to virus help was blocked. My system restore was also blocked in the sense that if I attempted it, I could get to the confirm page and then clicking next did nothing.

Now, I was finally able to copy over the registry files from a previous restore using the windows xp recovery console from my Dell backup disk. It's allowed me to get to the point of being able to post on this forum, download hijack this and get the log.

The previously blocked Malwarebytes found nothing, spyblocker search and destroy removed win32.agent and win32.banker. AVG popped up immediately after I got back into windows with this new registry with a few trojans to heal.

So what's left? here's the log

Hello and thank you for advance for the help. Two days ago I had a virus mimicking a Windows 7 antivirus program. This program would provide increasing difficulty with remaining logged in to Windows, and I was eventually forced to do a System Restore. The problem seems to be fixed, except that I now notice I have a problem using search engines. After the search I am able to click on one result to get to the correct website, but any other results I use off the same search are redirected to random "search result" sites. I am forced to right click on the result I want on Google or Bing and open a new tab in order to view legitimate search results.

A:An annoyance - Bing search engine

Step 1
Select the "Chrome Menu" icon resembling three horizontal lines and select "Settings."
Step 2
Select "Google" in the "Search" section. If, for some reason, Google does not dislay, click "Manage Search Engines" and select "Google" from the list of available options.
Step 3
Close the "Settings" window and then restart the browser.
Also, make sure that Bing is not set in IE as your 'default' search provider.

I am using firefox and it apears that Bing has hijacked my search engine.  Even if I go back and change it through the options it continues to open a new web page as Bing.  I looked in my program files and I do not see Bong or Google anywhere. I have ran malwarebytes and a spybot and hijack this and can not seem to remove it.  I can not even remove it from the list.  The remove button is grayed out.  Any information is appreciated!

A:Bing has hijacked my search engine

You might want to refresh your Firefox settings. A few months ago, Firefox changed their default search to Yahoo which uses Bing.

I had to reinstall windows xp on a pc the other day and after running windows update IE8 locked the search provider to bing. Under manage search providers I was unable to change the default search from bing. I was unable to uncheck the box allowing programs to suggest changes to my default search engine.
I repair pcs from my home and on this particular day I was working on someone else's pc. I had to hold pc for an extra day and redo OS again to rectify issue. I haven't had time to see if there's a trojan floating around causing this issue but thought I'd poll the community to see if anyone else ran into this issue or knew the cause?

A:Member Poll Bing search?

I have the same problem as of yesterday. I udpdated to IE 8 and the installation information assured me that my previous settings would be kept. I had Google as my default search engine, but now bing is the default. When I try to change it back to google and remove bing, I can click the google as default and disable bing (so I thought), but the remove button is whited out, so I can't remove it (of course, it will let me remove google). BUT - when getting offline and then back on, the bing setting is restored as the default search and a message box comes up that says a 'program' is not letting the settings remain as previously set and has reverted back to bing. Very fishy. Do you think Microsoft is pushing the bing to compete with yahoo and google?
Anyway, any advice would be appreciated.

I have a new HP Pavilion Laptop computer with Windows 10. System info is listed below this message.

Each time I login to Windows a Bing pop up window appears on my Desktop which I have to close. I have attached a picture to this message. Google Chrome is my default browser.

I have had a Costco Concierge technician work with me on this and he suggested I make Google search my default search engine which I have done. The pop up then disappeared for a few days and then returned. A Google search revealed that Bing is part of the Windows OS, is tied into Cortana and therefore cannot be deleted. Any instructions on how to keep this annoying window from appearing is greatly appreciated

Hi - I have been trying to get rid of this thing myself by looking and copying the steps in various threads and finally decided that it is beyond my capabilities to do myself. I used Malwarebytes Antimalware and AdAware to try to delete it but was unsuccessful. I have Symantec Antivirus on my computer but it did not catch it. In all cases, the various programs did find something to remove and I thought it would take care of it, but it did not.

I may have some other virus as well but I am not sure as the Norton Antivirus no longer reports anything. However, things are still running slow and the machine locks up from time to time.

At any rate, thanks in advance for the help - I am so glad that you folks are out there to help people like me.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give. A few days ago my internet started acting up. When doing a web search, Google would produce search results, but when clicking on any of the results, it would send me back to the Google home page. I noticed too that when I went to put in a search, I did not get a list of topics that google usually gives you when you start to type in a search topic. I also tried Bing and got similar results, except that at Bing, clicking on a search results would either lead me to the “cannot display webpage” window, or it would load a random webpage, often times associated with the University of Phoenix. This morning it loaded a webpage called “Shopica” with the text “Top resources for pheonix [Sic] university,” below which were six links related to colleges. Clicking the BACK button loaded a webpage about migraine headaches, and another click of BACK loaded a webpage selling “StopZILLA” anti-virus software. Again, Google searches redirect back to the Google search page. Now, if I type in any webpage, such as my local news station, without using a search tool (Google etc.), the webpage functions perfectly. So this really seems tied to doing a search. Those are the symptoms. Now, some additional info: Yesterday, when trying to sort this out, a Google search led me to a webpage, presumably by Google, that stated anomalous traffic was coming from my computer, and it wanted me to enter in the human verification word to continue.

Good day. Let me start by letting you know that I have absolutely no computer expertise whatsoever - explanations of what to do will need to be simple. Sorry for what is going to be long posting, but I'd like to give complete background so that you can properly help me.Yesterday I was on MySpace before noon ~ this is the only site I had visited that is out of the norm for me. I'm pretty boring and regular with what I visit...and I do not download or click 'yes' on just any old box that pops up. Having said that, I absolutely did not download anything yesterday until well after the problem first cropped up. My protection settings are medium-high, and I was running AVG 8.0 (free).The problem: I began having trouble with some of my webpages freezing. It would seem to load, the little green bar at the bottom would be all green, I could see the web page, but the scroll bar would not move, neither the 'back' nor 'refresh' button would work, and I could not close or "x" out of IE. (I was using IE 7, my OS is Window XP, with Service Pack 3. I downloaded and am now using IE8.)

I have a problem that may only be partially fixed. It just started happening yesterday. When my computer would start, a Windows Explorer window would pop up opened to a folder called Common. The path to this folder was C:\Program Files\Common.

Inside the folder, there were two files called helper.dll and helper.sig. I ran system restore and this made helper.dll disappear, but helper.sig remained and the Common folder would still pop up at boot up. I then changed the folder's name to RenamedCommonRenamed and changed helper.sig's name to RenamedhelperRenamedDotsig . Now the folder doesn't pop up when Windows starts, but the problem probably isn't totally fixed. I read somewhere that this problem can be related to malware called InfoStealer.Banker.D that tries to steal banking information , so I want to make sure the problem is fixed.

GMER locked up my PC twice during file scanning segment. The log attached resulted from a scan with Files unchecked. I am leaving for a 10 day road trip 9/7 and won't have access to the PC so work me in accordingly.

Thanks in advance.
