I am currently in fixing a laptop, fairly new, and after removing everything else, it is just me...vs...the browser hijacker. Nothing will remove it. It redirects searches, opens new tabs relevant to the search, but not safe websites. Please help. Thanks. I have used AVG, Avast, MalwareBytes, Spybot, and CCleaner for the registry. Of course, not all of them are still on there. lol. Thanks. I would appreciate some help. The problem has been occurring in Chrome, and Firefox, and IE. I don't want new browser. Just to remove this.

I'm sorry but I can't really help you. Take it to the Geek Squad or reinstall Windows.

It could be a root kit that's not yet defined. You may be able to report it with another machine or over the phone.
