Remove the web’s WORST MALWARE "Funmoods"


Funmoods



How do you get it?
As with Babylon Toolbar, Funmoods is often bundled and pre-selected with free software. You can also download it separately from the Funmoods website.

What does it do?
The Funmoods toolbar lets you insert smileys into social-networking posts and webmail messages, and gives you access to online games and radio. However, it’s also a browser hijacker that changes your search provider and homepage, so that the page ‘start.funmoods.com’ displays every time you open a new tab.

How do I get rid of it?
Most of the removal instructions for Babylon Toolbar also apply to Funmoods, but there are a few extra things you might need to do. In Firefox, go to Tools, Add-ons, click Options (or More) next to the Funmoods entry, then select Advanced and uncheck the option ‘Use Funmoods as enhanced search for
new tab’. Click Remove to get rid of the add-on. Next, type about:config into the Firefox address bar, type browser. newtab.url into the Search box, then right-click it and choose Reset. In Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Remove the web’s Internet Options and click the Settings button under Tabs. Click the drop-down menu under ‘When a new tab is opened, open’ and select ‘The new tab page’. If this doesn’t get rid of Funmoods, you may need to delete some Registry entries. See bit.ly/funmoods302 for details, but be sure to create a restore point before deleting anything
