Omiga Plus infection Windows 8.1 IE11
Hi Guys (and girls)
So my friend has a Compaq laptop reinstalled OS Windows 8.1 (running Avast A/V) all latest updates automatic.
Some how his machine even though just re-formatted as Windows was just displaying a black screen, well the new problem Omiga plus has appeared and I managed to remove it from Chrome, but not IE 11 - I've tried everything I can think of from running Hijackthis and running Malwarebytes to resetting the browser deleting all data and reset the browser and deleting Omiga registry entries.
Apart from creating a new profile or formatting again (which I am reluctant too do as it's working fine apart from IE, Simple solution would be to use Chrome. But I don't know if the user will accidentally run IE)
Actually I am going to try a new profile, please note I may not be able reply asap. But I will attempt to reply in a timely manner.

The bloody thing is back yet again, apart from recreating the windows profile again. Does anyone have good methods or getting rid of the iOmiga plus web browser hijack? I've reset the Chrome browser and it's still bloody there! Grrrrr
Get adwcleaner, JRT from bleeping computer http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/windows/
Malwarebytes can be gotten there too. Run all three.
Be sure to follow step #3 or you we be re infected.
