i downloaded the desktop smiley toolbar when i noticed that every time i use the internet auto search keep on popping searching for anything i do not even know. I uninstalled the desktop smiley toolbar but the problem is still persistent and I cant get rid of it. Its keep on coming and its ruining my net surfing..I am hoping you can solve my problem about this desktop smiley, rock you, free lotto, travian games, new recipes, whatever..that keeps on popping up on my window also i cannot install a kaspersky software because everytime i attempt, windows warning me there is a conflict on AVG-8 anti virus..but I already uninstalled AVG-8 a long time ago. :thumbup2:
