Hi folks,
I installed an app that changed my home page and default search engine to one I don't like, How can I change them back to Firefox.
Thank you!

Did you run the antivirus and have security scan?
Maybe that website is a hijacker.

This site is really a virus!!
I had a security scan just now. My antivirus can find it out, but it can't delete it.
I don't know why. When I reboot my PC, it is still there. Nothing changes.
What should I do next?

Hi Deniel,
I suggest you to do the following steps:
To change your home page, do that from Options > General. To change the default search engine accessed from the address bar, change the address in the about:config window in keyword.URL.

In the light of that your corrent homepage may be hijacked by virus, so you'd better tell us the URL of that site.

To get rid of the virus, what you need to do is following the instructions or downloading the automatic remover.
I strongly recommend you installing the antomatic remover, because manual removal is a complicated work that needs a lot of expertise.
