Hi Tony,

The plus network search is really annoying, it is actually a redirect virus which has affected many others as well. It has also be classified as browser hijacker.

What it does is, it changes the default homepage of the browsers to and every time you visit your favorite websites or search something on Google, it will redirect you to unwanted sites.

There are several steps that might need to be executed –

  1. Navigate to Start > Control Panel > Programs and features and check if there is program related to Plus Network search. If found then select it and click Remove/Uninstall to get rid of it.
  2. Remove all instances of plus network from chrome –

    2. Remove from search engine list : Click wrench icon, Settings > Search area > click manage search engines, select and remove search engines entries for Plus Network.
    3. Clear browsing history : Click wrench icon, History and clear all browsing data.
    4. Reset homepage : Click wrench icon, Settings and click "set pages".
