I just paid $90 for McAfee to access my computer and remove all malware and viruses. The guy said was not a virus, but my Firefox defaults to it and will not let me reset my homepage. It did this for the McAfee guy too. I am supposed to be refunded if they cannot clean the pc completely. What should I do? I see the server is located in Israel. It is not anything I knowingly downloaded. Is it a virus?

I didn't have to download any software. I got this problem when I accidentally downloaded a program called iLivid. If this is how you picked it up you can get rid of it by opening Windows Explorer, look in program files find iLivid and run the uninstall.exe which will remove everything including

I tried Malewarebytes, my anti-virus program HIJack and GMER rootkit scanner and none of them worked. You can go to tools, internet options, general tab, search - setting to disable the toolbars and search engine that comes up every time you open your browser or a new page, but it will not remove the program. Under toobars and extensions click on each tool bar and then more information, this will tell you if it is searchqu (bandoo - livid toolbar) and where it is located on your C drive. Mine was located in C:\ProgramFiles\WindowsLividToolbar\Datamngr. You can delete this file and all of its contents from your C drive as long as you don't have a browser open. I deleted it and have had no problem since - remember to close any open browser or you will not be able to delete all of the files and folders.

I had this problem which is resolved simply, i went on add or remove programs by going on control panel and I found something called ivid(something like that) and then it was searchqu but disguised, delete this then you will have no more problems with searchqu!

I have Windows XP installed

I too had problems with searchqu; tried many of the suggestions posted to no avail.
Finally got rid of it today by going in to System Restore and taking the restore point back to May 7th. AND IT WORKED. The dreaded searchqu has been banished !!!!!!!!
Definitely worth trying and so EASY!

Did you do a search of your HD & registry for searchqu?

Make sure you do this before the search.

i finally got rid of this "searchqu" by going into tools, manage add-ons, select toolbars and extensions, show all add-ons, searchqu was listed under "bandoo media inc" but searchqu itself was disabled, so i also disabled bandoo media inc, which was listed as a separate add-on.

Also go to program files and delete the program (ilivid, seekbo, etc, and then control pannel and do the same

In Firefox, you also need to uninstall DataMngr 1.0 add-on. See illustrations on thisd web page: In Google Chrome, there's additional search engine installed alongside Searchqu called Web Search. You should change your default search provider back to Google or any other; otherwise annoying redirects will continue. Although, Searchqu is not malware, I think it's a good idea to scan your computer with antimalware software, Malwartebytes or SUPERAntsipyware.

My 14 year-old son had searchqu on his computer and I worked for days trying to delete this very elusive trash. I tried everything- deleting all the registry values (Datamgr., bandoo, etc.), using the traditionally effective HiJackThis, to downloading and trying Malwarebytes- all of this- to no avail. I finally downloaded a program which fixed it in about 10 minutes on it's own. I wish I had done that first and spared the aggravation.

So, from one frustrated mom to whomever is out there listening, here's the simple fix for a very stubborn problem:
