A friend who is unfamiliar with today's computers & browsers keeps getting infected with the MyWay virus. Maybe it's not a virus, it is certainly an annoyance. It seems to glom onto FireFox and make itself the default page when the browser is opened. Maybe Chrome too, not sure of that.

I have twice gotten rid of it for him; different ways each time. Today with some variation of AdAware, previously I figured out how to do it in Firefox. Computer is Windows 10.

I had him purchase a virus protection program I have used for years called AVG. I have NEVER had any issues since I have had AVG; I have Win 10 also.

Is there a permanent solution that can be applied to prevent MyWay from coming back?

Thanks
