V9 Search Engine is it malware or part of CCleaner?

Recommended Posts

Hello- used CCcleaner for years. Tried it recently on a new cpu after downloading directly from Piriform.  However, after every scan chrome automatically gets changed to use the V9 search engine as a a default and v9 as a home page.  Ive removed and changed v9 manually so this only happens after a cccleaner run.  

 

Is this malware, is there anyway to get rid of this. It ruins an otherwise great product....thanks

That's a really comprehensive guide for removal; v9 must really root itself in there!

shoot!, sorry, I only read the first 2 pages and thought that was enough to add ammo that it was malware.

didn't notice that site also had removal instructions.
