Remove speedbit search from IE and Firefox

I installed DAP on my computer to speed up my downloads and  now whenever I open a new tab in IE or try to search something in search box it was redirecting me to web page.

Same thing was happening with Firefox, I type a keyword in the location bar to search it ( default is Google ) but it was redirecting me to speedbit search page.
I removed DAP  and speedbit search from my computer, still the same thing was happening. Here is the solution I found with some google search:

To remove speedbit search from IE:
1.Open registry editor and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Microsoft   \Internet Explorer\AboutURLs2. Right click "Tabs" string value and select "Modify"4. Cnange the value to "res://ieframe.dll/tabswelcome.htm" which is the default value the Internet explorer.
5. Close Internet Explorer and open again

Remove Speedbit search from firefox:
1. Open firefox browser and type “about:config” in the address bar
2. Look for keyword.URL item in the list and right click on it select reset.

Note: Make sure you have already removed speedbit search from Add/remove programs.

If you de-select the install option, it will still install. Speedbit Inc. has it set up so that it will disregard your request, and install it anyway, and change all your homepages and search pages in all your browsers without your consent or your knowledge. And, they also know the truth that most people have No idea how to change all of these back. I didn't, until now, and I would consider myself an "Expert" User!!! Very deceptive and sneaky, indeed!
