Hi :pale: ,
This is my first time on your forum, I am extremely impressed with the work you are doing for the community and wonder if you can help me please!

I have a Firefox browser v.6 however when I log on expecting my Google start page I get: hxxp://search.youtubedownloader.org/?f=3, it does not matter what I do I cannot get rid of this search engine. Any advice would be gratefully appreciated. :|

By posting just a Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware log it is likely that your topic will be passed by and you will not receive the help you're requesting. We need to know what's running on your computer so that we can provide the appropriate instructions.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read, that states what we need you to post, so we can help you.
If you still need help, please start a new thread an include your DDS logs:

  • DDS.txt.
  • Attach.txt.
  • Details of the problems you're experiencing.

If for any reason you can't run DDS, please let us know in your post. Mention you have the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware log, available to post.

This topic will now be closed.
