Uninstall SearchAmong (www.searchamong.com)

After installing a video player, I noticed that SearchAmong have conquered my browsers. Instead of a default Google search, my homepage now shows SearchAmong search box and SearchAmong Toolbars. Internet Explorer is not the only one affected by this add-on. Even Firefox and Google Chrome are redirected to www.searchamong.com as their homepage. It is very disturbing. When I try to search a thing from this page, all I can see are advertisements and irrelevant search results.

I don’t want to use this SearchAmong add-ons and extensions. Can someone please tell me how to remove SearchAmong homepage and toolbars? Is there a one-way removal solution to get rid of this thing from all my three Internet browser?

Thanks,
Tessie

    Malwarebytes was my first choice. It doesn’t find it. Nor does Norton, Spybot, or AVScare virus remover 13. I’ve done all the manual deletes and resets possible. Can nothing stop this?

    Malwarebytes DOES NOT see nor uninstall SearchAmong!! The above link is for Malwarebytes. I have tried several other programs and nothing gets rid of this damn thing!
