Conduit.com

I am trying to get rid of conduit.com search on Firefox. It does NOT show in IE 11.

I have run Malwarebytes full scan and removed everything there.

Does anyone have any idea of an easy way to remove the conduit.com search ??

Running these two should be enough to get rid.

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R#].txt) will open in Notepad for review (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).
  • The contents of the log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name that you know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, let me know about it.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.
Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.

huffman,

Cutting to the chase...

Please use the tool Zoek:
Download > Download zoek.exe version 5.0.0.0
Download the Zoek.exe version.

When the download appears, save to the Desktop.
On the Desktop, right-click the Zoek.exe file and select: Run as Administrator (Give it a few seconds to appear.)

If your AntiVirus warns you about the program, either allow Zoek to run, or temporarily disable your AV program.
Info on how to disable your security applications > How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs - Security Mini-Guides

Next, copy/paste the entire script inside the code box below to the input field of Zoek:

Code:
Conduit;u
Conduit;ff
firefoxlook;
standardsearch;
installedprogs;
Note: This script is written only for use on this computer. Please do not use it on another computer even if the problems are similar!


Now...
  • Close any open Browsers.
  • Click the Run script button, and wait. It takes a few minutes to run all the script.
  • When the tool finishes, the zoek-results.log is opened in Notepad.
  • The log is also found on the systemdrive, normally C:\
  • If a reboot is needed log is opened after the reboot.
Please post the zoek-results.log in your reply.

I downloaded all the suggested programs.

After reinstalling windows, this issue has reappeared.
I know where came from now, it is something that installs on the latest version of IMGBurn.
It is really a shame that such a good program as IMGBurn would be associated with something so vicious.

Not trying to derail the thread here, just a little info on ImgBurn.

For future reference, the previous version 2.5.7.0 from File Hippo does not contain that wrapper.

Download ImgBurn 2.5.7.0 - FileHippo.com

Back to the experts now.

Good information but this thread has apparently been solved by the re-install of windows, (Just not marked as answered)
I believe the op just dropped the n't off his reply (This issue "Hasn't" reappeared)

This one is a different story though ?
