    Default removal of offsw.com browser hijack

    anyone got any ideas onhow to get rid of this fucking thing? It redirects any search results to a site called offsw.com, which firefox and chrome block anyway. Problem is I cant search for a bloody fix for it since every time I use google it kicks in.

    I had a LOAD of crap on my comp, think a niece has been on it when i was out but running spybot, antimal and kaspersky seem to have got rid off all that, just this problem remains.

    You will need to register there and post a few logs. No doubt you will end up running ComboFix to help you out.

    Btw they aint the quickest forum in the world in replying , but they got me out the shit a while back and there info / instructions are worthwhile.

    No doubt they will complain about "illegal software" on your machine , but they are not there to judge

    Good luck

    They usually work for me, a good thing about malewarebytes is its constantly been updated and stop hijacks straight away
