Hello Keith! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.I'm sorry about the issue. Usually, with browser hijacks/toolbars/programs, etc., the antivirus/security program cannot protect because they are usually not spyware or viruses; they are just some add-on programs; advertising programs. To prevent this, you should be careful when downloading/installing any program from the internet. Even when you know the program you want to download/install from the internet, that program might try to get you installing another program, such a browser toolbar, that it partners with, so during installation, look for custom or advanced option, etc., and uncheck any add-on item you don't want.The free Malwarebytes Anti-malware program may be able to remove some of these. Please click on the website below:http://www.malwarebytes.org , then scan your computer using the Quick Scan option, , then click on Show results if prompted, then check all the items if it finds any, then click on Remove selected , then restart the computer. (Note: Do not buy anything or try the Pro version; just use its free feature. Also, note that the program name isXXXXX)Next, if you use Internet Explorer browser (the big 'e' program icon), please try the following fix:
If you use another Internet browser program, such as Firefox or Chrome, please let me know.
Please let me know if there is still any issue. Thank you,
