    Remove DAEMIN TOOLS searchbox from FireFOX

    Hello!
    After many attempts, i've found that it is easy:
    just start Firefox in "safe mode" (Start menu > Programs > Mozilla > Firefox (safe mode)), after closing all firefox windows, and select to reset all features, except bookmarks, then restart firefox. Fot IE7, choose another default search provider (e.g. Google) and then remove daemontools' one.

    Enjoy!

        My search engine is at default google but I can click on the image at the left of the search bar 2 select another search engine or manage search engines where I am then able 2 remove a search engine...
        Perhaps it will work for you, I am using FF v3.0.14.

          A solution

          Hi everybody,
          To get rid of the Daemonsearch page, you need to use a free utility called HijackThis.
          HijackThis - Trend Micro USA

          Download it and install it, and click the button that says "Do A System Scan Only". A new window will open, and the utility will generate a long list of items.

          Now, please be careful from here on in--you only need to remove one thing! You are looking for an entry that contains the phrase: "http://www.daemon-search.com/startpage".
          Here is how the Daemonsearch entry looked on my machine:



          When you find it, put a check mark in the small box on the left-hand side. Now click the button that says, "Fix Checked". A confirmation window will appear, asking if you want to delete or repair the item; click "Yes". The homepage hijacker is now gone from your system.

          Now, go to Add/Remove Programs, and check once more for the program entries mentioned elsewhere in this thread. If you don't want the Daemon Tools Toolbar, remove it now.

          Now, open your browser(s) and change your homepage. On Firefox and IE, you do this by clicking "Tools" and then "Options" or "Internet Options". Now, change your home page setting to a blank page, or Google, or anything you like--but you must change your homepage, because right now it probably has the DaemonSearch page URL stuck in there somewhere. Make sure the changes are applied, then close your browsers and reboot your machine.

          Once Windows has restarted, fire up your browser. Everything should be back to normal.

                Found out how to remove DAEMON Tools search engine on Google Chrome. It might be similar for Firefox and/or Internet Explorer.

                1. Click the wrench in the top right corner. (Probably Tools on Firefox)
                2. Click Options.
                3. Click Manage Search Engines.
                4. Hover over the search engine you want and click Make default on the right. (I use Google)
                5. Delete the ones you don't want by clicking the X in the same spot.

                Hope this helps.
