    Edge Browser Hijacked by MPC Safe Navigation - search MPC


    Edge Browser Hijacked by MPC Safe Navigation - search MPC. I tried a few of the suggestions for removal I found on-line. Most ask me to check "services" or "background service" but I could not find the program anywhere. Apparently it does have it's own uninstaller, if you could find it. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated

    :)

  3. How do I remove MPCCleaner?

    Please do not download the "automatic removal tool" from the SpyHunter-pushing site which was advertised in the previous reply you received.

    SpyHunter is a commercial third party program which is not recommended here in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest to read and follow the advices in these free removal guides:

    Removal instructions for MPC Cleaner - Malware Removal and Self-Help Guides - Malwarebytes Forums

    How to remove MPC Cleaner (Virus Removal Guide)

    How to remove MPC Adcleaner (Virus Removal Guide)

    Remove MPC Safe Navigation redirect (Virus Removal Guide)

    In case, those removal guides do not work for you and/or you need more help, you might want to ask for free expert help here:

    A couple of things come to mind, if you have Ccleaner installed, check under "Tools" >>>"Startup" to see if you can find it's startup and then you can disable or delete it. Then, go to the "Uninstall" tab and see if you can find the program and uninstall it.
    You then should run MBAM and your AV after.

    Thanks Cliff but it doesn't show up in CC Cleaner "Tools" >>>"Startup" . MBAM , Super Anti Spyware and Browser Hijack could not find it. It seems the only thing that can find it is "EDGE". I noticed on line some of the people have MPC as an phony antivirus worm. I just seem to have the browser hijack. Thank you anyway I'll keep trying...it's just annoying as hell...you have to do one search in the "EDGE" search bar then you get taken to MPC and you have to enter your search parameters again. Thanks again.

    You can try nuking the browser.
    What I mean is clean out everything. Close the browser and reopen it, let it resync, then try using it again.

    I mean clean the browser out totally. open settings, clear browsing data, choose what to clear, check off everything, let it clear all data, close the browser and reopen it, then try using it again, and see if the problem persist.

    Hi.
    The Youtube video Cliff posted looks like it will do the trick. But, you might also want to run this:
    AdwCleaner Download

    Please set a restore point before running it, just in case. It's a pretty powerful program.
    If you're unsure about what to remove and what to keep, just post some screen shots of what it found, and we'll advise.

    Once clean, please delete that restore point using Ccleaner - you don't want the hijacker rearing its ugly head again.
