Does/Could SecureAnywhere deal with this and if so how?

This DEFINITELY worked for "Guruofsearch" on Chrome, but I suspect that it will work for other browser hijackers and it also fixed my Internet Explorer.
I went to Chrome Help at this link:
It was EASY and QUICK! I was rid of "Guruofsearch" in no time.
Or you can go directly to the Chrome Cleanup Tool for Windows 7 thru 10.
"Clean Chrome of unwanted ads, pop-ups, & malware
If you're seeing some of these problems with Google Chrome, you might have unwanted software or malware installed on your computer:
- Pop-up ads won't go away.
- Your Chrome homepage or search engine keeps changing or is not set to Google anymore.
- Unwanted Chrome extensions or toolbars keep coming back.
- You keep getting redirected to unfamiliar webpages."
It literally worked in seconds. I'm no expert, but I think it cleared the cache as all of my saved sign-ins were gone. A small price to pay. I hope you know all of your passwords . It also disabled my extensions, so enable any extensions that you're using.
I'm not even sure if there is any relation, but the "plugin" link for FlashPlayer still didn't work, so I went here:
The link still doesn't do anything, but now when a FlashPlayer video comes up it asks me if I want to activate it. Goodbye plugin link, hello ask me on screen. That's good enough for me! I even like it better that way!
If anyone still has the problem, I hope it works for you. And YES, it's SAFE to use.
