    I will not know how helpful this information is until I try steps suggested. I hope this works. I've tried for a week now to remove this  hijacker.  After this experience I am afraid to to click on the  removal promises kits!!

    Hi, I someone ended up having this nationzoom in my browsers. I mostly use chrome with IE as the system browser which I never use. I had uninstalled all such unwanted programmes and even then nationzoom refused to leave me. In chrome, even if we use remove extensions, reset our homepage, it does not work. The only way nationzoom was removed was to uninstall  chrome completely and reinstall it. However there is a problem with IE. My IE is old, IE7 and i use WIndows Vista. There is no "toolbars and add ons" tab in "Manage Add ons" for my IE. So although I have deleted all sorts of suspicious folders on my appdata, local, local app data, reset homepage to google in IE, clicked on the reset button on advanced options on IE multiple times, everytime I open IE, i end up getting the nationzoom page. Is there any way to correct this or uninstall and reinstall IE? I do not use IE at all, but still its little disturbing .

    One of my laptops was infected by  pup. I uninstalled Chrome and Firefox and reverted to Explorer which I normally NEVER use. That too was infected……

    I then went to tools and reset the home page to I went to regedit and changed all the references to to

    But STILL the filthy malware was infecting my computer. At my wits end I googled on removing I then tried to recover windows to an earlier status  – after an hour it's still running. I then moved to another computer on my home network and downloaded spyhunter. I still don't know how I am going to solve this, but the manual steps suggested here in this forum did not work for me 🙁

    How is is possible that this stuff can infect all my browsers so deeply?

    One step further. The system recover failed (don't yet really know why – maybe I messed up something in the registry) apparently due to insufficient memory. I only have about 12gb available on my c drive and about 40gb on my d drive…..

    I then ran spyhunter on the infected computer and it discovered masses of malware – including YEEEE! Still waiting for it to complete the scan, but it seems as though spyhunter is the way to solve this….. I hope 🙂
