    I tried your instructions to remove from my search engine the Mixi.DJ and I cant.

    Following your instructions, happen after hit about config in the search box, it did not work as Mixi.DJ, it shows only as MixiDJ, without the point.

    then in the showed list was 4 folders, three of them work with the right click and reset but not this folder:

    CT3287822.defaultSearchDisplayName;MixiDJ V8 Customized Web Search. the reset option wasn’t available.

    Without reset this folder, I hit the google icon then manage search engines but there were others engines but not this MixiDJ.

    I looked in my C disk, at remove programs, nothing, there is not folder mixidj

    I am desperate, if you have something to try, could you please let me know. thank you so much in advance. Eugene
