My workaround, after I saw this page,
was to fire up IE. It's good for emergencies.

On the device that I didn't make the change to, I again tried clearing cookies and now opens there.  Having an issue with cookies on my laptop though.  For some reason, there are no cookies -- no folders, nada.

I made the change on one device and left the second so I can test when it is hopefully fixed.  I also discovered that if you use HTTP instead of HTTPS, Bing works.

If you use Pale Moon or Firefox, you are likely receiving the referenced error message when attempting to access your email, OneDrive or Bing.  See the explanation and temporary work-around at Hotmail, Live, Outlook and Bing connection errors, and our security. - Pale Moon forum
Thank you for sharing the solution.  Now that it has been solved, let's take care of removing the tools used:

Please download Delfix from here.

Ensure the following boxes are checked:
  • Remove disinfection tools
  • Create registry backup
  • Purge system restore

  • Click Run
The program will run for a few moments and then notepad will open with a log.   Please paste the log in your next reply.

I wanted to share this i found, and it took off the from chrome. By deleting registry.pol from this folder it allowed access to settings and did not limit access from the default-administrator. Once it rebooted, make sure you go back into settings and delete the search choice option. Thank you for your help.

I was hit with this ridiculous browser hijacker today.....well my wife was but I got to do the fun removal part. After an hour and a half of reading and trying different things that also carried with them the threat of irreparably damaging my system; I finally stumbled onto a Google thread on this subject and the simplest solution ended up working for me.

and what worked for me was this:
"Very Simple solution:
Press and hold Windows key and R (Win+R)
Copy and paste: %systemroot%\System32\GroupPolicy/Machine
Delete : Registry.pol

Restart the computer.
All done"

It would appear that the author of this scourge has made modifications over time as they have discovered that those infected are finding solutions. So who knows how long this method will work. What's clear is that all the "best" malware and adware solutions (including the Chrome cleanup tool) are not able to eradicate this things from peoples systems. Hope someone finds this helpful!
LandzDown Lounge / Memorial Day 2017

For mitch, the Phantom Phixer, who kept the F4s flying.

Memorial Day, originally known as Decoration Day, was conceived after the American Civil War as a way to honor the Union’s war dead (Logan’s General Order No. 11, 5 May 1868).  The Southern states set aside separate days to honor their fallen Confederate soldiers. Union soldiers had seen Southern women placing flowers on the graves of fallen soldiers from both sides.

With the bloody World War I, it evolved into a day of remembrance for all military members who died in the service of the United States.

Freedom is not free.  All gave some, but some gave all.  Honor and remember those who paid the ultimate price, and be grateful for their sacrifice.

"If you are able, save for them a place inside of you and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go. Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may or may not have always. Take what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own. And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind."

Major Michael Davis O'Donnell
1 January 1970
Dak To, Vietnam

Mike was shot down a few short months later, on 24 March 1970.  He was attempting to extract 8 members of LRRP RT Pennsylvania, 14 miles inside Cambodia in Ratanokiri Province, after they declared a Prairie Fire emergency.  The Bikinis aircrews supporting MACV-SOG operations had a creed they lived by ... "You take them in - you get them out!"

RED THREE'S last transmission before his Huey burst into flames was "I've got all eight, I'm coming out."

Listed as KIA on 7 February 1978 (Presumptive Finding of Death).  Remains repatriated on 12 April 1995.  Identified on 20 June 2001.  Came home to Arlington National Cemetery in a group burial on 16 August 2001.

Yes, I have tried that before but it will not let me change the default. You can't see it on the image, but it has a little window that reads, "You setting is enforced by your administrator". I am signed in as the administrator and I went to internet settings in the control panel to change the home page, because it says I deleted it and put google, but it did not do a thing. :-\
Hi, Doxiemrs.

The second image, "manage search.png" shows that SafeSearch is selected as the default search engine.  Please return to Chrome settings and select "Manage search engines".  In the top part of the Search engines box, click a different search provider (e.g., Google or Bing) and select "Make default".  Then click Done to close.
