    SearchProtect: How to deep-six this annoyance

    Yesterday a 2 x 3 message parked itself on my screen.

    Search Protect
    We have improved Search Protect's browser protection!
    Search Protect has detected that your browser ...

    It wishes to change my home page and default searches.

    Then an option
    No Thanks or Apply

    Seems to be persistent. Yesterday to eliminate it I used a forced reload.
    It appeared again this morning.

    The question is how to deep 6 this annoyance.

    Thanks

    Any time I see a new program with the word "search" or "research" I know it's not good.
