Thank you! I saw this when researching this repair. Is AdwCleaner a trusted product? It's history in this community? (I'm now a little gun shy.)
Also, is the website MalWareTips usually a good place to start when issues are discovered or when doing research?
I'll try this approach tonight and see if it works.
Yes Adwcleaner is trusted, by us Moderators at least as we often recommend it.

As Fellow Moderator Ex_Brit stated, We recommend AdwCleaner quite frequently to resolve Adware/Pop-Ups/Browser Hi-Jackers, etc. It has been proven to be a Trusted/Reliable Tool. I will also add that " MalwareTips " has proven to be equally the same in respect.
Just like being a (Bronco) Fan...(Go Peyton Manning !) you can,t go wrong.
Simply follow the Guidelines/Instructions with-in that Removal Guide, and please post back your results.
