I can't get rid of Bing as my default search engine; at the bottom of the Bing search page, the following appears: by [PhotoJoy U.S.], part of the duct network. Could this be a culprit of malware?

I tried all other remedies listed for a diversion of Bing; none worked. Then I noticed attribution ' PhotoJoy/Conduit.

I have picked up PhotoJoy to a download of C-Net, which has inserted a PhotoJoy toolbar in Firefox. I did an uninstall and figured I'd put all the shit of PhotoJoy.

Start Firefox in Firefox to solve the issues in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions of the origin of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > appearance/themes).

You can open the topic: config page through the address bar and search to bing via the filter at the top of the about: config page.

You can reset all bing related prefs which appear "BOLD" (user set) via the context menu to their default values.

  • Windows 7 - How can I get rid of an "All Control Panel items" icon on the desktop?

    Only, I've migrated to Vista Ultimate x 64 to Windows 7 Professional x 64.  I used Laplink to move all my users, programs, and settings.  Everything is great, except now there is an icon on the desktop for all my users that I can't get rid of - it connects to the control panel and is called "All Control Panel items" - it cannot be deleted or moved to the Recycle Bin. Make a right click on it brings up a menu with 'open' and 'create a shortcut' by dragging it to the trash does not delete it.

    If I am right cick on the desktop and add Control Panel to the items displayed on the desktop, a second control Panel icon appears with the same picture, but the text is just 'control panel '.

    I don't know there is a registry key that I have to remove or adjust but after a lot of research can't find anything.

    Open the Publisher of the registry (Regedit.exe) and navigate to:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace]

    Backup the key by exporting to a REG file.

    Expand the branch above and delete the following subkey:

  • How can I get rid of what looks like a soccer ball on the screen?

    When I move the cursor upwards or downwards, a small icon that looks like a soccer ball that appears on the screen and its function is to scroll the screen at lightning speed. It brings me to tears. How can I get rid of him?

    I'm terribly sorry. This problem was not the work of Windows, but it is rather a problem of Mozilla Firefox. The small circle with a dot in the middle (it looks like a ball of soccer at first glance) is because of the "scroll" of Firefox feature. If you are in a browser window and you move the wheel mouse this little circle appears and before you can blink, you are at the top or bottom of the page. Very annoying.

    In any case, for those who have this problem: in the Firefox browser, click on tools, Options, advanced options, and under navigation, clear "use autoscrolling".

  • Bing is loading before my home page. How can I get rid of Bing?

    Just today, Bing started to load when I started FireFox before my home page. I looked around Bing on my computer and can't find it. What I did today to ask you... Well I load two programs... which I have since deleted. Still stuck with Bing. I have checked the Add-ons and extensions, looked for something new in the list of programs on the control panel...
    I'm stuck here people... Help!... Please, I beg you.

    The same Junk page appear when you open a new window (Ctrl + n) or click on the Home icon or press Alt + start of the keyboard?

    If so:

    • If your home page setting is correct, one of your extensions may be overriding your setting. Open the page modules using either:

      • CTRL + SHIFT + a
      • "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Add-ons

    In the left column, click Extensions. Then, when in doubt, turn off, or if evil obvoiusly, remove. Often, a link will appear above at least an extension disabled to restart Firefox. You can complete your work on the tab and click one of the links in the last step.

    If not:

    If the problem only occurs when you use your Firefox shortcut icon /, it could be hacked. Right click > properties > Shortcut tab. The 'target' for 32-bit Windows 7 should be it (no more, no less):

    "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
    

    If anything else follows, try to remove it.

  • How can I get rid of Norton quarantined (bulk, phishing) envelopes left in the mailbox of e-mail

    Emails have been correctly identified as malicious and quarantined by Norton Antivirus.  However, the software leaves the empty envelopes now sit in the mail box.  Trying to their trash in the normal way to produce a message that they cannot be removed because they do not exist (that is, they are in their 40s with an assigned name Norton and the link between the envelope and the content is of course broken).  Norton must associate an explanatory message to the now empty envelope may be accompanied by an explanation, and things could then be deleted according to the normal procedure,

    At this point, I don't see any solution to get rid of the empty envelopes and OSx (updated) obviously doesn't know how to deal with them.

    Everyone please, any ideas?...

  • How can I get rid of a 'sidebar' (an additional site without on the left of the screen) that is still there after restarting Firefox and even cold, start the computer?

    I opened a Web site of the library without specifying "in a new tab. I expected to crush the existing active tab. Instead, he opened in a demi-fenetre on the left, without tab and without all the icons "Min/Max/Close. I can not close it even by restarting Firefox or stop and start the computer. He now appears on each screen in Firefox with each tab. I note the address of the site to be replaced, but the offending site is https://servicing.capitalone.com/c1/login.aspx.

    There is an 'X' in the top right of the sidebar.
    You can replace it with a different sidebar; Therefore, you can use "Ctrl + B" to bring up the sidebar bookmarks, use "Ctrl + B" once more to turn it took off.

    Click on the star to bookmark to bring up the bookmark, in the lower left corner, if you see the following, uncheck the box.

    [X] load this bookmark in the sidebar.

    You can right click a bookmark to display the bookmark properties, uncheck the "load this bookmark in the sidebar".

    In the sidebar

    1. Right-click to bring up the Page Info
    2. Triple - click the url
    3. use "Ctrl + B" to bring up the Bookmarks Sidebar
    4. Paste the url in search, then right click on the found object to bring up the bookmark properties

    In the list of Favorites library there is unfortunately no column in the list of library of favorites for this feature, but you can click on the bookmark and properties will be displayed on the box under the same information, if you see a drop-down list "gone" click to view the list of properties.

    If you want to see the extent that you have these bookmarks you export our bookmarks in bookmarks.html file and then view the source and use of find for WEB_PANEL = "true" - I have the extension 'Search all', so I can see how many times the string occurs and where.

    It has a turbulent history, it is useful as a reference column, but it was destroyed in Firefox 3, after use in a link, use, restoration of use later but not keyworded bookmarks and not places links both where it makes sense to break. Remained at does not not for keywords because they wanted to destroy the mot-cle--Word key lost for a year in the beta version of Firefox 3. Now, it must be eliminated because few people (can) use it (properly), but they will make this inaccessible box first - someone ' else see the additional error with that.
