QuoteI 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/MachineDelete : Registry.polRestart 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!
