    This search engine has hijacked my pc, set itself as startpage on both firefox and chrome. Complete reinstall of the two browsers did nothing. Now I'm worried that my pc is infected with more than a useless search engine as a start page. AVG antivirus and spybot S&D did not kill it.

    Anyone know anything about it or any software that might kill it - whatever it is?

    In my experience AVG has been complete crap. Go get a trial version of Norton or (free) Microsoft Security Essentials and see what those can do. Those have worked well for me in the past.
