I inadvertently downloaded the Conduit search engine virus downloading a program. The conduit search engine got onto both my Windows 8.1 laptop and my Windows RT Asus tablet. I ran Malwarebytes on my laptop and got rid of it. However on my Asus Windows RT tablet, it put itself onto Internet Explorer. I reset my Internet Explorer on my Asus VivoRT tablet. Am I safe with Windows RT or should I remove everything and reinstall windows? I ran Windows defender multiple times and it found nothing.

This is Windows RT though
So that would be the first ever WinRT malware I've ever heard of. If you're on 8.1 on both systems the reason your RT device is going to the bad home page, is because they are synced across devices. Just log all the way out/restart and reset your IE on your RT device. Go to the full post
