Hey Experts,

I am having problems trying to get rid of a virus on my system that keeps redirecting my Firefox home page to srchz.com. Even if I change the home page, the next time I come into Firefox, the home page is reset to srchz.com. I also believe it is the cause for a bunch of pop-ups on Firefox. I have gone through all extensions, search engines, and add-ons and don't see anything. I also ran Malwarebytes and the redirect still happens.

Have any of you seen this virus and know how to remove it?

Let me know...thanks!

Combo Fix did not work...

The fix was uninstall Firefox, clean up remaining Firefox folders, and reinstall Firefox. I also backed up favorites.
