Nt.searchadventure.net appears on my Mozilla Firefox recently. Someone made it as my homepage and my favorite one is gone. When I try to change it back, Nt.searchadventure.net replaces it again and again. Therefore, I give up. But still, there are some things that I can’t stand any more. It redirects me to Nt.searchadventure.net and other various ad websites all the time. When I am reading news on the Internet, endless ads pop up blocking the contents and I have to close them one by one. I wasted lots of time on those annoying things. The problem is I have no idea how to get rid of it. Is there anyone who can help me out?
