Remove Search.bytefence.com Hijacker

For some reasons, my web browser is fully taken over by Search.bytefence.com hijacker. It will not allow me to conduct a search on Google or any other engines. I use Firefox and now every time I go online, there are tons of ads interrupting my online activities. I ran a quick scan, then a full scan with Malwarebytes, and it identified 2 items, got rid of them (I think). Problem is still not fixed. I tried to change my browser settings but it didn’t help at all. It is very frustrating. Any suggestions?

Search.bytefence.com Description:

Search.bytefence.com is a phony search engine classified as browser hijacker that can modify browser settings, hijack one’s default homepage, install unwanted toolbar, display annoying pop-up ads and even redirect users to malicious website against their wills. When it gets installed, it stops users from going online properly. You will be constantly redirected to Web sites that you had no intention of visiting. Whenever you surf online, you will end up having tons of pop-up ads or misleading error messages on your screen. It takes much longer than before to load up a web page. Besides, the hijacker can corrupt any browsers you have installed including IE, Firefox and Chrome. As a result, your browser may keep freezing and show you “Not responding” error. Although Search.bytefence.com seems like a legitimate and trustworthy search engine, it won’t really offer reliable search results for its users. The hijacker is created purposely for marketing, commercial and publicity purposes only.

Javascript Fine Warning Locked Mobile Device? Popup Unlock Guide

I have an iPhone. Yesterday I accidentally clicked a link on an inappropriate website and all of a sudden a message popped up saying that I had to pay 500$ within 24 hours or I would be persecuted for violating some rights or whatever and charged as a criminal. It was just a plane white page and it even gave me my location. I was scared to death and then I searched online, fortunately I found it was just a virus. The javascript fine warning blocked my Internet and I can’t leave the page or minimize it so I am unable to get online now. How do I get rid of the locked page and remove the virus completely?

Your Internet access will be totally blocked because of this javascript fine warning page. It is a little bit different from the previous Ransomware which disguises itself as Flash Player app for Android and blocks everything on the phone. This one is just used to block one’s Internet access. Nevertheless, both types of Ransomware are sharing the same goal, which is to scare innocent users and extort their money.

How to Get Your Phone Unlocked From Cyber Police Fine Warning Message?

Earlier today I was using my phone to search information, and then my phone had been blocked by cyber police for some cyber crimes such as watching pornography or downloading illegal contents. It said I needed to pay a $500 fine within 48 hours or they will file a case against me. I have never done anything illegal so I’ve searched everywhere on the Internet and found out it was a scam trying to scare users into paying a fine.
