I tried uninstalling it, but when I do, it seems to corrupt my operating system's startup. After uninstalling Adware Alert, I am prompted to restart, but then my system gets caught in a loop, where it displays the first few startup screens repeatedly and will not re-boot.
I have been able to get back in by hitting F8 during the startup and manually selecting to start using the last known good configuration. I tried starting in Safe Mode, but this did not work. Once I'm back in, I can do a system restore to get it functioning again, but only if I restore it to when Adware Alert was still installed.
I use McAfee, and have uninstalled & re-installed this as well. McAfee is not recognizing Adware Alert as malware.
I feel like I've been hijacked! How do I get this garbage off my computer and still get it to operate correctly?
