In one of the routine update sessions, Claro-search got installed. I wanted to remove it since I have google search engine as a default search engine. I am not able to remove it using ADD/Remove program or revo uninstaller. My default browser is Firefox ver 14.0 Every time I click to open a new tab in firefox, claro-search opens.
When I checked in the google search, it gives a message that it is a browser hijacker. I have Avira Free antivirus and Emsisoft anti-malware. Since I have realtime protection enabled in Avira, I have disabled all the guards in Emsisoft anti malware and use it only to check the folders for malware.
I have run both Avira and Emsisoft for detecting the malware. Both have not been able to detect this. I have scanned the system with hijackthis.exe and attaching the text file.
Kindly guide me to remove this claro-search from my system. Thank you.
