OK...PALTALK....dont even go there. I stupidly used their downloaded Scene even though I had picked up trojans there before. I had always been able to delete them without a lot of fuss. Not this time. Malwarebytes, Ad Aware and SUPERantispyware....NONE of them would find it and/or delete it. I finally did a system restore back to two weeks ago and got rid of the damn thing. This bug was particularly smart, even turning off my Internet Explorer if I clicked on a link that led to anti malware sites. I had to do a lot of tinkering around just to down the anti malware stuff which didnt work. Only the system restore did. Ya live and learn. DO NOT GO where you know hackers and idiots lurk. Thanks.
