    I'm leery of anything "free" now for reasons like this. The PC space is kinda in a funny place with people buying iOS apps. If something is "free", you're the product.

    Yes their is a way. You can do it manually. I wouldn't recommend doing it manually due to the fact that you'll actually have to dig deep to get it all out. Your better off to use a portable malware/adware cleaner this way it gets every thing, and you wouldn't need to get down and dirty in system files and system values etc. You wouldn't want to cause a system error then not be able to start your system at all.

    Go here, then click the large blue "Download Now @ Bleeping Computer" button to download and save AdwCleaner.exe to your desktop.

    Close all open windows first, then double-click AdwCleaner.exe to load its main window.

    Click the "Scan" button, then allow the scanning process to finish.

    Click the "Clean" button, then click "OK".

    Allow the cleaning process to finish.

    When it's finished, click "OK" in each window that appears.

    The computer will restart.

    When the log appears during restart, save it.

    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the ENTIRE log here.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    Repeat lines 2 - 9.

    BOTH logs need to be viewed.

    I received your private message. You did fine with submitting the "Scan" and "Clean" log.

    You need to repeat the steps again. The second log needs to be viewed to insure everything was found and deleted.

    The second "scan and clean" found and deleted additional threats, so a third "scan and clean" and its log is needed.

    Are you still having the conduit.search issue?
