Today was Toolbar Day, basically. I had installed a video conversion freeware and it installed some toolbar called Babylon. Took a bit of time until I could un-install that. Then I DLed utorrent for something (yes! I know that torrents are bad!) but usually it's fine - this time it installed a utorrent toolbar into my Chrome. I just want to make sure that's all that they installed into my computer.

I ran a Microsoft Security Essentials scan and got nothing but, I want to be sure.

you just have to be pationet when installing Programs on your computer
Don't just Click your way through it
most of the time there is an option to not install the toolbar


if you want some piece of mind

Use On Demand scanners Like
Malwarebyte's
Superantispyware
Hitmanpro

also make sure to enable PUP " probebly unwanted application " setting in those

A big thanks to Dider Stevens

sorry for not being around
