Bing Redirect Virus is not an infection you want to find on the operating system. According to the most recent research, this infection is just a different version of the infamous Google Redirect Virus, which we have reported in the past, and Yahoo Redirect Virus. Needless to say, the infection gets its name because it is infamous for hijacking the browsers operated through the Bing search provider. Unfortunately, this infection is no ordinary hijacker, and it is linked to a number of different processes. As you can imagine, Bing Redirect Virus removal is quite complicated.

    none of the anti malware programs is able to remove the stamplive adware from my computer. I’m afraid the only solution will be to go back to factory settings.

    I had price minus ads popping up often in all webpages.It was driving me nuts.! I removed an extension from my browser (Firefox). I started deleting the extensions that I knew were not vital. And no more popups! I do have a couple of malware programs, and they too failed to remove these ads. But removing the extensions from Firefox + the add-ons section its what did the trick! I also did the same thing to google chrome browser, I deleted some add-ons, and extensions as well.
