funmoods

I have funmoods on my computer. I have updated my malwarebytes Anti-Malware software and ran a full scan on my computer. Funmoods is identified and deleted as part of the scanning process. Unfortunately upon rebooting and opening up the second web page the file is always there. Any ideas on how to get rid of this problem??

First thing I would suggest is to remove Funmoods;

Sir George,

Thanks for your advice. I went to PCRisk as you suggested and tried to implement their suggestions. Unfortunatley with no success. In my original question I talked about the second page. What I meant was my default page is nineMSN news. When I open the web browser for the first time the default page comes up however when I tried to open a second page using the default browser the funmoods page comes up.

Regards Bulla

Check and see if Funmoods is listed as one of your default browsers. If so, remove it from the list.

No luck there is only one default browser on the list.

Are you certain that Funmoods is not listed in add-ons;

Click "Tools" (or gear icon in Internet Explorer 9), select "Manage Add-ons". Look for Funmoods Toolbar related entries (Funmoods Toolbar, Funmoods Helper Object) and disable them.

Back again. I have checked the "Manage Add-ons" (both current and "all add-ons") and there doesn't appear to be any trace of funmoods.

I downloaded DR WebCureit, scanned all of the drives which took quite along time and although the scan picked up some suspect files etc (refer below - note I could not attach the csv file so I simply pasted it to the quote) it didn't get rid of Funmoods which reappeared when I opened the second browser page (after I rebooted the computer)
