Browser hijack funmoods how to get rid off
« on: March 22, 2013, 10:43:31 PM »
Funmood is a browser hijacker , a pup potentially unwanted programme. Merely by deleting the searches and deleting funmood entries does not solve this problem as the tool bar changes the master boot record. It makes changes in the registry and master boot record as well
The solution is Hi, it is a case of browser hijack when you downloaded some software. The best way is to boot your computer in safe mode, pressing f8 and then select when you boot and then go to start, then run and type "regedit", go to edit menu , and then to find menu and find for funmood *.* and then "escort"*.* and delete all the entries by choosing f3 key, to find another and so on , connected with funmood. It is also possible that the tool bar have entries in the master boot record. So , go to START, Computer, right click the properties and turn off system restore. Have the installation cd, and when prompt from cd comes enter to boot installation cd, and then when windows show start windows screen, select R for repairing and then enter 1 and password to go to c:\windows. Type FIXMBR to fix the unwanted entries other than the windows default mbr entries. Select yes if a warning message comes and then exit. Your problem would be getting solved. If you download, download from major geek instead of usual free download sites, which are carriers for these browser hijackers. Thank you and reply if the problem is solved. And as a last method, now uninstall your browser, including privacy settings and reinstall the browser.
I used these methods to get rid of funmoods, blekko , incredible and babylon tool bars  I thank the mcafee virus data base for the solution.This should work for you RSVP

The Bottom line is "Check your hardware first if it supports the task you try".
