Hi. I'm about at my wits end. I've done internet searches and followed everything I could. I've done the 3 bars top corner, settings etc...
I cannot find any trace of HOLA on the pc, but it keeps hyjacking google.
I have done a HyjackThis as follows.

Hi !
Try Google, and search for: AdwCleaner by Xplode.

It's free and worked for me like a charm with a similar problem on a W7 system.

The malware is hidden in registry posts, that's why you can't get rid of it the normal/easy way.

Good luck !

Best solution

I had done all the other guff with the google tools and uninstall programs and such but the damn thing kept returning in a new tab on google. I tried regedit recommendations but could not find the files mentioned. the link above done the job,

Many thanks
