My home page has been hijacked and replaced by something called OnlineWorkSuite. How do I get my home page back?
(I'm using version 61.0.2 (64-bit))

This a guessing game or were you planning to provide some details relating to your extensions, etc. sometime?

This is a browser hijacker that is bundled with other free software that you downloaded or updated recently.

To James: Step 1 in the link you sited says "Uninstall Office Work Suite from Windows". I can't uninstall Office Work Suite from my computer because it is not listed in the list of programs.

I have come up with my own solution to this problem: I am using the Tor browser.
