    I had removed a "pup" malware from my windows 10

    My default browser is Firfox; search engine google and mail is outlook

    everytime I turn on my pc the defaults revert back to edge, bing and ms mail

    I installed the edge deflector and it does send my search over to Firefox BUT the search engine still comes up with Bing
    I rest all the defaults; still can't get rid of Bing

    but I have to reset Firfox and set up outlook again when I turn on

    I went to the apps page and did a repair and reset but still have to redo

    You may still have lingering bits or damage from the malware. Even though the malware/pups have been removed, the damage they left may still be there. Registry settings may have been changed
