Can't get rid of searchnu hijack completely...

Dr web cure it got rid of alot of junk (over 600 pieces) but I'm still having a issue with this searchnu browser hijack when I open up IE.

Basically, I'll reset all the IE settings and when I open it back up, Searchnu is the start up page and immediately after it will take to me to the manage addons page when I must set up the home pages and toolbars I want to use.

I don't know what else to use. I used malwarebytes, sas and dr web...

I'm in safe mode as well.

The computer runs alot better when I got it just this last thing and I'm done.

One typical problem is when there are additional browser setting guarding software installed with searchnu. Make sure you uninstall everything installed in the last days (by date) from control panel. That is why anti-malware scanner might be required (but not always).
Then (via)

On Internet explorer:
Click arrow on the right of search box
Do following: On IE8-9 choose Manage Search providers, On ie7 click change search defaults
Remove the unnecessary search engines from the list

On Firefox :
Enter “about:config” in url bar. This will open settings page
Type “Keyword.url” in the search box. Right click it & reset it.
Type “browser.search.defaultengine” in the search box. Right click it & reset it.
Type “browser.search.selectedengine” in the search box. Right click it & reset it.
Search for ‘browser.newtab.url’. Right-click and reset. This will make sure that the search page won’t launch on each new tab.

On Google Chrome:
Click 3 horizontal lines icon on browser toolbar
Select Settings
Select Basics ->Manage Search engines
Remove unnecessary search engines from list
Go back to settings. On Startup choose open blank page ( you can remove undesired pages from the set pages link too).

I'm gonna take a video snap and show you exactly what happens. No toolbars are installed except yahoo and Google. Weather channel and weather bug are installed. I'll reply after malwarebytes finishes scanning.
