    I just bought this computer and already I am plagued by the unwanted "Conduit search" page and have thus far, been unable to get rid of it. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    So far, nothing I have tried has even found it. This really has me baffled.

    in fire fox open settings and goto the general tab, and make sure that the home page is set to one you want... then hit ok... at the top click the drop down in the search bar and select manage search engines remove conduit from this list, and click ok then click the drop down again and select the search engine you prefer

    What exactly are you trying to remove, Conduit or Bing?

    Is Conduit showing in Internet Explorer as well?


    Please download AdwCleaner. (there's only a french version available that I know of)

    You need to click on the [​IMG] to download the program.

    Save the program to your desktop.

    Run it. (It doesn't need to be installed)

    Do not click on Suppression.


    Click on Recherche (Search) and wait for the short scan:

    [​IMG]

    When the scan ends, a report will open in a Notepad window.

    Note: This report is also saved to C:\AdwCleaner[R1].txt

    Click inside the Notepad window.

    Press CTRL+A on your keyboard to select the whole content.

    Press CTRL+C to copy the content.

    In your next reply here, press CTRL+V to paste the report.

    Close AdwCleaner.

    Do not click on Suppression.
