What is Cassiopesa?

I have A Dell D630 and Cassiopesa has taken over the search engine. What can I do to protect my computer? What should I install to block things like this in the future?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Cassiopesa is a browser hijacker. It is quite intrusive, as you have found out. And it's not something to take lightly.

VirusResearch has a good set of instructions on how to remove Cassiopesa.

Once you remove it, you may need some free (or pay-for) anti-malware program to check for any residue. I use Norton and have been very fortunate with it, but it's $69 a year, so if money is tight, there is Panda Free, BitDefender, Malware Bytes, Avast, AVG, Symantec Endpoint, etc.
