    Homepage keeps getting reset

    My homepage keeps getting reset to a search engine that looks something like dxmi, but might be slightly different than that as its awkward to read. I believe its connected with some company called conduit. I have removed a toolbar from add/remove programs, and have reset IE10 but still it comes back. How can I get rid of it permanently?

    Yep...your infected with that add on toolbar. Download and run Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware and run full scans, this will take awhile. This should get rid of it for you.

    It's pain in the kister to get rid of...I have 2 small kids that love to get on mommy's work laptop and play all kinds of games, of course they have to download them, and then the fun begins for me to clean it all up.

    Also get Ccleaner and run it to get rid of junk files and run the registry cleaner to get rid of any leftover or unwanted/unused strings.

    I use CCleaner regularly and used to have malwarebytes until I installed a SSD for windows 8 and never got round to putting it back on. Have found 3/4 probs between the two programs so far. Probably take hours to run 1Tb drive quite full.
