I am experiencing a browser hijacker in my computer since last two days I click something wrong when I watched a porn video on a porn website. Now my homepage and default search engine have been modified to Netwebfind.com. I once tried to uninstall the browser, but when I reinstall it again, the hijacker is still there. So now I am searching the files and extensions in the system to delete them all, but don’t know which one is the really malicious. Could you please help me to walk though?
