    Warning How can I get rid of safesearch.net?

    Hi all, I encountered a problem on my dads computer, I can't reset the default search engine because it comes up as "This setting is enforced by your administrator" and I don't know how to get rid of it. I've tried deleted all of it's Registry Keys and deleting the .dll files associated with the program. How can I fix this? I'm using Google Chrome btw.

    Safesearch gets install by a virus as I recall, happened to my mates comp, what you need to do is first get rid of the virus if its still around and then remove the safesearch program from the install program's list, if it gives you jip saying access denied just get a move on boot utility and delete it that way
    Hope it helps.

    safemode with networking, rkill, malwarebytes to get rid of the virus.

    Then download Hijackthis so you can fix the safe search problem. HiJackthis will remove safesearch properly. Then you can restore your computer to its original search engine.
