    ..installs a browser dns hijack even though you opt out of browser install. Fails to inform you of all the ad spam and browser hijack before or during the install.

    Dear mrkykwan,

    Sorry for the misunderstanding there is no need to reformat your computer for a browser change, you can simply launch your browser and click options and set back your original homepage and search engine.

    If you do chose to reinstall, when prompted with the Add-On screen please kindly uncheck BLekko.

    Kind regards,
    Corina - Lavasoft support
