Save it to your Desktop.
Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
NOTE: If SecurityCheck aborts and you get the following message: UNSUPPORTED OPERATING SYSTEM! ABORTED! try rebooting the system and then run SecurityCheck again.

Computer is fine. I'm pretty sure the hijack occurred installing a freeware video editor install from Cnet, a site I thought was reputable. The question I have is that I never saw any of the SearchMore install menus that the Malwarebytes posting for this Hijack showed as examples. Also, Windows defender never alarmed. I thought it defaulted to scan downloads. I need to remove the downloaded file.

Download DelFix by Xplode and save it to your desktop.
- Run the tool by right click on the icon and Run as administrator option.
- Make sure that these ones are checked:
- Remove disinfection tools
- Purge system restore
- Reset system settings
- Push Run.
- The program will run for a few seconds and display a notepad report.
Paste it for my review.

Thank you Joe. After my other help sessions complete I donated to the helper. Do you have a PayPal or Venmo account?
