When I attempt to delete the surfsidekick3 program from the add/delete function I get a prompt that says to delete enter a code. The code is provided in the prompt. The code appears to be like a product code that one uses when installing a new program on a computer. Is it safe to enter the code or will it cause more problems?
Thanks,
Oldseadawg

oldseadawg56,

I would suggest that you submit a Hijack This log. I have added a link here on how to prepare for that and an explanation of what to expect.

Yes, you can enter the code. But these malware programs rarely remove themselves completely this way, if at all. As Animal suggested, its best to follow up with a HiJack This Log.
