I tried a few anti-viruses and malware removal tools, but was still unabled to remove this hijacker. I decided to try Avast Free anti-virus, which completely removed the hijacker and other viruses it may have downloaded.
The Somoto.com Fake Search Engine
Update: March 7, 2013: You may use AdwCleaner to remove somoto. It is a very small program that doesn't require any installation. Click here to use it.
Please see the instructions below for removing Somoto with Avast:
- Download Avast at by clicking here.
- Install it
- Open Avast user interface and click on "Scan Computer"
- Click "Boot time" and "Schedule Now"
- Restart your computer
Before your computer boots up, Avast will scan your computer for viruses. Please allow it to do a full scan and periodically check on it because it will stop when it finds a virus and ask you to select an option. It will not continue until you have selected a number from 1 -5 with the corresponding answers.usually options 1 and 2 tell Avast to delete the virus permanently.
I think this is the best way of removing this virus instead of doing it manually by editing the System Registry and locating the files and deleting them yourself.
Also, bigseekpro.com is the same as somoto.com.
