Baidu Search Engine- removal request

This Search engine has recently appeared on my PC. Despite many attempts via Google to get rid of it, nothing seems to work. It's hanging on like a limpet. Any ideas, please?

Hi, Jock1e,

There's no mention of Spigot on my C drive, ehow link shows nothing, and there's no mention of Searchsetting in my task manager box. And it doesn't show in my Firefox Add-ons. Like I said , it's hanging on like a limpet.

Hi Jock1e,

I reinstalled in the end - dunno how I got this thing.

Thanks for all your help, though,

Dave
