Browser hijacking searches through adware

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a problem when I'm trying to use Bing and Google for searches. When I click on the link, it redirects me to another page like ads instead of the original page. What software do I need to remove this? Do I have to remove some registries for those nasty ads? Using Malware Bytes and MyWebSearch shows up as the culprit, but I can't remove all of its files.

Boot into safe mode and run the full scan again with MWB, then delete whatever shows up. After that, restart... boot into safe mode once again and ensure they don't appear again. If they don't, boot into normal mode and run a MWB scan to ensure they don't show up in normal mode.

I'd also go and set your proxy settings to default for each browser to also ensure that there's no malicious redirects after you've removed the culprits.
