    Genieo removal
    I'm trying to get rid of the genieo browser page that pops up when I type in a subject to search.
    I have followed the directions to remove it, and do not have it as my home page, but it still pops up when I do a search. How do I get rid of it completely?

    The 2nd one will lead you to a link to properly uninstall it.
    You should probably do that one first.

    The first link provides details on correcting the search engine - to be used only after being properly uninstalled.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
