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.

Recreated Windows Profile issue resolved, bit of a pain in the a$$!

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

The Adwcleaner done the job it is brilliant, I had already tried Malwarebytes with limited success.

malwarebyte, Adwcleaner and JRT [Junkware Removal Tool] are a great combination.
What one does not get the other does.

I didn't try the JRT but everything is running well for now - I'll keep them that in mind, I am suppose to be getting another laptop for my personal use for free. The machine is running like a dog hopefully it's just a virus might even reload the O/S... Just prey it's not a hardware fault, I suppose I can replace the hdd or update memory if required :/.
