My computer was wrecked over the weekend by this virus. I paid someone to fix it

and he got me back on the internet. I then downloaded Superantispyware which I used to have and it found all sorts of crap on there including a Trojan.

But still now when I open a new tab I go to "Mystart by incredibar" and there is a search bar on the page and a moving slot type game on the page. I can't seem to get it out. I have checked with my Add-ons with Fire Fox and it is not listed there. I can't find anything listed in my program files. I just want it to open to a Google page.

Anyone know how I can kick them out and get google or nothing in?

1. run malwarebytes

and, if necessary, start in safe mode first and delete new files that can rewrite the malware on startup.

8. RU on a PC. If so, just download the malwarebytes app and run it.

Yes, I have used it to clean up intruders on my PC, multiple times, and friends to use it to clean invaders of PCs.

7. I hate those sneaky things and they often are hidden in stuff you download

like freeware or things like that. Good for you!
