ai am infected really bad with , what i believe to be a trojan spyware virus. I have just noticed something called a security toolbar 7.1 that is messing up my computer by making it run slower, and sending me really graphic porn pop ups. My 13 year old daughter sees that, and for now until i fix the problem, she cant go on the computer. ... my question is, how the heck do i completely uninstall this from my computer for free? I have tried downloading programs to get rid of it, but after a 2 hour scan, they say i have to pay to have all of the stuff to be removed. anyone know how i can do this for free? and easily??? thank you howard and cheryl campbell from florida

Use the Smitfraudfix tool in the link below. Follow the directions carefully.

Follow up with the two programs below.
Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Please let us know the results.
