     For the past week i have been figuring out how to remove hao123 being set as my default homepage. I had done a google search and fortunately I found up it was solved by using FRST.exe with fix list provided from expert here.


The window in used is window 7.

Every time when I start up my internet browsers such as IE, firefox or google chrome. The hao123 will definitely come out as the home page.

What I had tried to do:

- Reinstall firefox                                                                                                                                 -> still having hao123 as home page when start up.

- Chrome, set the page as www.google.com, set the default search engine as google search.          -> Hao123 still exists.

- Wise Registry Cleaner                                                                                                                      -> Hao123 still exists.

- Malwarebytes Anti-Malware                                                                                                               -> Hao123 still exists.


Please help.
