I tried to delete ABI network via ADD/Remove program but it won't delete it for me. Instead it says I have to go to www.mypctuneup.com to remove. I haven't gone to the website for the fear that I may get even more spywares/viruses on my PC. Should I ?

Hello SunnyTX. You should post a HijackThis log. HijackThis is an application that examines and fixes startup and running processes. Please read this pinned topic
How to Submit a HijackThis log

If you would like to know more about HjT you can read this HijackThis Tutorial

HijackThis is a useful tool but can cause damage if you make a mistake with it. Please do not try to fix anything with it if you are not sure what you are doing. Post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum. Let the experts handle it. Aurora is getting so prevalent. Good luck to you.

You are very welcome SunnyTX. :thumbsup: I hope they get to you soon. We are very busy today. The volunteers are pretty swamped. Thanks in advance for your patience.

Thanks again.

I tried to remove it via add/remove in control panel in safe mode but I still couldn't do it. It asked me again to go to www.mypctuneup.com to download uninstaller and remove it that way. I then went to www.mypctuneup.com as I couldn't resist and the site looks legit. Should I d/l uninstaller ?

I would give it a shot after running it through your AV program.

Answers to General Facts and Questions

Q: Who are we?
A: The MyPCTuneUp website and uninstaller program was created by Direct Revenue, LLC for the purpose of making it easy for consumers to uninstall all ABI Network advertising software. We want to make sure that all of our advertising software is easily removable either through the Windows Add/Remove utility, or through the MyPCTuneUp uninstaller program. Our live customer support service, the first in the industry, is available in case you need assistance.

Q: How did I get advertising software on my computer?
A: Our software is packaged with free, popular downloadable programs, such as peer to peer file sharing software, screensavers, and games. Examples of applications we're packaged with can be found on our distribution website, Abetterinternet.com. We allow software developers to capitalize on the work they've done, and at the same time many consumers find our advertisements highly relevant. That being said, if a consumer doesn't want our software on their computer, MyPCTuneUp will enable them to uninstall quickly and easily.
