Need help to remove mysearch-engine.net homepage on Safari
« on: November 12, 2015, 09:06:55 am »
Anyway, my browser start page is suddenly changed to mysearch-engine.net without asking. I always get new commercial windows when I want to open new tabs or access websites. Besides, the computer slags at times. I Google it on the Windows computer and find posts like describes it as a browser hijacker. It could endanger my private data!!! I follow support.apple.com for main page settings but failed still. To be honest, I have no idea now! Could you please help? Thanks in advance!

Have you tried the solutions provided in the Blog : SensorsTechForum.com/Remove Mysearch-engine.net ? There you can select "Safari" in the removal instructions guide and try that out.

As I understand you have Safari on an Apple machine?
If that is the case, try searching for leftover files that have "Mysearch-engine.net" in their name in these directories:
  • /Home/Library/Applications Support/
  • /Library/StartupItems/
  • /Home/Library/StartupItems/
  • /Home/Library/LaunchAgents/
  • /Library/LaunchAgents/
  • /Library/LaunchDaemons/

If your computer is slow, then you might have some other malware on your computer and should scan your PC with an anti-malware program. I recommend Spy Hunter, Malwarebytes or StopZilla. I hope that solves your problem. Write back with feedback and if you have further questions!
