I have the common problem of the searchqu.com/406 hijacking of my Firefox homepage. Even if I change the homepage in options, it returns in subsequent sessions (and my usual homepage now gets 'a 404 Not Found' if I go to it manually). I deleted the culprit iLivid, that was mistakenly installed to days ago, and its folder in Program Files, ran Malwarebytes and cCleaner, but the problem persists. I even tried a HiJackThis scan but couldn't see any files that appeared relevant to searchqu.
What do I need to do and what files to send ? BTW, I don't know how to generate and send the DDS logs, if you could specify pls (I'm using Windows XT Professional SP3). Thank you in advance!

We need to know what's running on your computer so we can give you appropriate instructions.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read, and which tells you what we need you to post so that we can help you.
