    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.

    Thanks folks
    ZL

    Thanks
