|ame thing happened to me. Searchqu.com/406 hijacked my homepage and default search engine. I eventually got back the homepage but each new tab overrode the default page and opened up searchqu.com/406. I tried various things, including CCleaner and the Control Panel to delete the BANDOO programs causing the problem – two, including the search facility, had sneakily downloaded with another one for watching a series online. I should have realized something was amiss – other users could not download episodes even after installing the required Bandoo download facility, and neither could I. Deleting the programs did not get rid of the rogue search engine, nor some of the components. |
I finally got rid of everything by restoring the computer to an earlier date. I had to do this as trying to restore/undo to earlier points after I had attempted to delete the programs cut off internet access so I was unable to check online for solutions. Thankfully I have back internet access and the three Bandoo downloads have been removed completely. Homepage and default search engine are now back to normal. :)
BEWARE BANDOO products, and that includes emoticons!
