search-fine hijacker
« on: February 05, 2023, 09:25:32 PM »
Anti-virus keeps picking this up every time I try to open any internet browser. I get search-fine.com re-direct. I'm not sure what more I can do.

This is a browser hijacker. Go to extensions/add-ons in your browser and find and remove the Search-fine-extension.
