Re: Trotux

We consider spyhunter as a tool to be avoided at all costs.

I checked 2 removal guides found with google, and they said the same:
1. Remove with Adwcleaner (free)
2. Reset the infected browsers.

It's not a virus. Just a browser hijacker.

Re: Trotux

I didn't say "analyse with MBAM", I said "remove with Adwcleaner".
I didn't say "some reboot". I said "reset".

Re: reset Chrome

I mean the same as Google does when telling how to do it. It's the first hit if I use their search engine to search for reset chrome.

Adwcleaner is another program then MBAM, so it does different things. Since it's free, why not try?
