Default Search Engine Hijack

Please Help,

Everytime I complete a search using any of my engines i.e. google/yahoo/freeserve a few seconds later i get a second search engine pop up with results, which are invariably naff.

It displays itself as http://search-company.com, how do I get rid of this annoying pest.

I've tried spybot/ad-adware/intenet options but cannot find any control to switch it off.


Any help much appreciated

Not sure how to get rid of it, but you could try a new browser (like Mozilla) that blocks pop ups so only ones that you allow through pop up


Sorry i couldn't be more help
