Hi Seattel,

Thank you for your post.

Did you check if there are any browser add-ons installed with Internet Explorer browser? If you have the Conduit Toolbar add-ons installed with Internet Explorer browser, then you may uninstall or disable it. Please follow these steps:

a) Press “Windows Logo” + “R” keys on the keyboard to open the “Run” command window.

b) Type “inetcpl.cpl” in the “Run” command window box.

c) On the “Internet Options” window, click on “Programs” tab and then click on the “Manage add-ons” button.

d) On the “Manage Add-ons” box, under “Toolbars and Extensions”, disable every add-on that is suspicious or related to “Conduit”.

e) Click on “Search Providers” and remove the “Conduit” search provider from there after setting your favorite search engine as default.

f) Click on “Close”.

g) Click on “Apply” and then on “OK”.

If the issue still persists, then try resetting Internet Explorer settings and check if that helps. Please refer to this article:

Change or reset Internet Explorer settings

Important: The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature might reset security settings or privacy settings that you added to the list of Trusted Sites. The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature might also reset parental control settings. We recommend that you note these sites before you use the Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature. You may also need to enable the browser add-ons after resetting the Internet Explorer Settings.
