I use IE 10 to access website on my Surface Pro Windwos 8. Today I find that an un-welcomed MIXI.DJ toolbar has downloaded itself and pretends to be a common application. I open Control Panel and uninstall it in programs but it still stays and now has replaced my homepage with its own one over my browsers. How to get rid of the malware or virus?
How to Remove Mixi.DJ Toolbar and Search in Windows 8 Pro manually
* Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete keys and select Task Manager to launch. Click “More details” button, find out the MIXI.DJ Toolbar processes random.exe from the lists and then click ”End task“.
* Press Windows + R keys, type %AppData% and hit Enter. Search for and delete these files: NPSWF32.dll, random.exe, result.db.
* Swipe in from right side of screen to open Charms bars. Click Search, type regedit, and select it from results.
In Registry Editor, go to delete these entries below:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Shell =[random].exe
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\CustomizeSearch=[site address]
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Search Bar=[site address]
