Hi, I recently downloaded a program that is needed to downlaod a file from a file hosting site. However, it hijacked my browser by changing the homepage to search.ueep.com. I changed it back but it automatically changes back. I tried to google the solutions and followed about 3 solutions but non of them work.

I think this is called a browser hijacker or something. Anyone experienced this or know how to solve my problem?

Thanks

yes, that usually happens when you download from bootleg file sites, or porn sites.

the browser hijack won't be the only thing thats changed: you'll have a suite of malware and viruses on the machine now, probably beyond your ability to detect and find.
Swallow your pride, and pay a professional to sort it out for you. Or if you don't want to spend the money, back up your files, wipe the machine and reload it.
Now learn your lesson - don't download bootleg software
