Funmoods might be hard to uninstall if it’s embeded with a rootkit. But first of all, we have to make sure if it is. So try to go to the Control Panel, then click on Programs and Features. Try to find Funmoods Toolbar, click on it, find an option “Remove” and click it. It also might be under a different name.
However, if that doesn’t work, you should try several different antimalware products. Try Revo (free version) and see if it is able to uninstall Funmoods. Here’s a link:
If that didn’t work, download and run TDSSKiller.exe from Kaspersky Lab. It?€™s a little tool that hunts down and kills a specific family of rootkits. If Funmoods is embeded with one, TDSSKiller.exe will disable it.
After that, download rkill.exe. This is a direct link to download it. Save it on desktop and then run it. Your desktop icons might disappear while running rkill, but they will come back. When it displays a notepad report, just close it.
Rkill.exe WILL DISABLE MALWARE FROM RUNNING, BUT IT DOESN’T REMOVE IT.
Now, if Revo failed to remove it, try MBAM. This is a link to a free version of Malwarebytes?€™ Anti-Malware. Download it, update the database and do a full system scan.
Now, here’s a little FAQ about Funmoods removal:
In Internet Explorer – Go to Tools and then click Internet Options. On General tab, click Restore to Default
In Google Chrome – click on the Wrench icon (top of browser), then go to Options and on Basics tab select your default homepage setting.
in Mozilla Firefox – click the orange “Firefox” button on the top left then click Options. On General tab, click Restore to Default.
In Explorer- Go to Tools and select Internet Options. In the first tab labeled General, click Settings then select your preferred search provider and click Set as Default.
In Firefox- Click the downward arrow button next to the search box. Then select Manage Search Engines. Select funmoods Search and click Remove.
In Chrome- click the wrench icon and select Options. Make sure you are on the first tab “Basics” and then look for “Search” option to select your preferred provider.
In MS Internet Explorer 9 – to remove funmoods search from new tabs, go toTools -> Internet options -> General -> tabs settings, and set the “when a new tab is opened, open” drop down, and choose “The new tab page”.
In Firefox- Go to Tools and then addons, click Options, then select Advanced and uncheck the first option “Use funmoods as enhanced search for new tab”.
You can hide the toolbar by right clicking on the toolbar area, then find funmoods Toolbar and uncheck it. Although if Funmoods is removed from system, toolbar will be removed too. To remove Funmoods, follow the instructions above.
