Getting rid of free ride games web search

November 10, 2010 at 06:50:25
Specs: Windows 7 64 bit

My son downloaded the free ride games program ( I have now cut off his rights to do installs) and I uninstalled it.

However the damned thing still has a "free ride games customized web search" bar in both chrome ,firefox and ie!!

How can I get rid of them?

Thanks for any help

You may need to re-check additional items when you go to uninstall programs. Normally unwanted toolbars are left behind working. Try a free mal-ware or anti-virus to remove them.

it has still left this altered google search and bing search bar
Bing is the standard toolbar with IE

What altered search are you talking about?

Whn I open IE it goes to this page:


http://search.conduit.com/?SearchSo...

as a home page and what I see is basically a google search page with a Free Ride Games banner above the google search box instead of the normal google banner.

Now I know I can change the homepage option in IE to go straight to a normal google search page but this free ride games thing has obviously got its claws into my system sonehow and I can't think how to change the problem in firefox.

In firefox I have a google search box on the tool bar and inside this box where you would type your search criteria is the text"Free ride games customised web search"

hi had same problem but used what i always use in these cases. Just go into accessories/ system restore / and pick a date to restore before you down loaded the free games, and hey presto you should be up and running as it was before you down loaded that crap. Let me know if this helps.

Regards

Pete
