    Accoona Search Engine

    Hi

    Does anybody know how to get rid of the IE hijacker called ACCOONA. It has hijacked my seach process and I can't find a way of uninstalling it. I have no idea where it came from in the first place. I currently run AVG anti-virus, SPYBOT and Ad-ADWARE. They do not pick it up as a hijacker. The accoona website exists and look normal.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Thanks.

    Spybot shows that Accoona was detected in the update of 2nd December. Whether that's the same as your problem, I cannot say. Here is an (earlier) account of someone's experience with Accoona.

    Good luck

    Later... Hans seems to have found a prettier version of the same 'account'...!

    You also could try the free web version of Trend Micro Anti-Spyware (formerly SpySubtract): http://www.trendmicro.com/spyware-scan/. I'm not sure how often that one is updated, but it will connect to the update servers to check for the latest pattern file.
