Infection date and initial symptoms
First noticed it a couple of months ago probably. My home page was suddenly mysearchdial and a load of unwanted games and stuff had been downloaded.
Current issues and symptoms
when I start up my internet the homepage is still mysearchdial
Steps taken in order to remove the infection
Downloaded Malwarebytes Anti-malware which found a load of bad things and quarantined then deleted them.

Having done the Malwarebytes Anti-malware thing and deleted all the baddies I thought that would be it but mysearchdial is still my homepage. How do I stop this and has mysearchdial gone or not?
