Follow these manual removal instructions from malwaretips.com

V9 - browser hijacker. Next time you download and install any free programs be careful to untick any extra toolbars, search helpers etc that otherwise will install at the same time.

Hey, lotvic, thank you for helping!

I also found some removal instructions that I followed yesterday and fortunately it went well and this thing is no longer on my computer.

I had to remove it from my browse by resetting some of the settings and it did the job, but i also had to install an antimalware software. I downloaded the free version of Malwarebutes and now I am enjoying a healthy computer :)

MalwareBytes is not expensive, I would go for the Pro Version it is great IMHO and it is a One-Off payment only. I use the Pro version myself.
