I cannot change my homepage back to Google because every time I open the browser, it takes me to Isearch.omiga-plus.com automatically. It won’t allow me to change the default homepage and sometimes I get some popups showing at the lower right corner claiming that my computer performance is poor and I need to download something. It is really annoying. My computer is running with Win7 64 bits and I always use IE browser. How do I fix this problem? Any help will be appreciated.
