    IE 11 has been hijacked


    I have recently upgraded to window 10 and with it came IE 11 and Edge. I prefer to use IE 11 over the current version of Edge. When I start IE 11 from the task bar even though the home page is designated to be www.Bing.com I end up on a My-Search page with an annoying message that windows may be corrupted and I need to buy a package from Reimage to solve the corruption issues. When I then select go to home page from the toolbar it displays Bing as the search engine as it should I have tried multiple virus scans and other cleaner software to no avail. Does anyone know of a way to stop the hijacking by My-Search???

    Hi, and welcome to Tenforums.

    Please download and run the following:
    AdwCleaner Download
    Junkware Removal Tool Download

    Then please "reset" all browsers on the system
    Internet Explorer - Reset in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    Microsoft Edge - Reset to Default in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Let us know how it goes.

    And you still prefer to use a browser that's so easily hijacked? Why?
