I recently had a bout with an annoying piece of spyware that really gave my system the shaft. Now, I usually am good about spyware/malware/annoyingware but this time, it was a lapse in judgement.
Anyway, no need to get into which pr0n site it may have come from, because I have no clue myself.
I do know however that every browser I use now has these really annoying built in popups in the lower right hand corner... and not one single effing piece of spyware/malware/virusware/annoyingware/burn's wetwear matches her software that I've used has detected the thing. Just to give you an idea, I've tried Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, RKill, Stinger, Panda Cloud Antivirus, Avast Antivirus, Hijack This, Spybot Seek & Destroy, Windows Security Essentials and NOT ONE OF THEM has gotten a hold of this thing. Sure it's gotten other things, but not this thing.
This is also, after multiple re-installs of Chrome. I'm almost ready for the end game here... a re-format... because of this annoyance.
Please, if anyone knows what I'm talking about and has ANY sort of clue as to how to rid my life of this annoying little piece of software that just will not go away, I would be indebted to you for helping me!
The screencap attached is the lower right hand corner of my chrome browser, and part of my desktop if you're having trouble figuring it out... keep in mind, it happens to every browser on my machine, and I've got 3 (but Internet Explorer doesn't count, does it?).
Thank you for listening to my half nonsensical rant.
PS: Points to whoever get's the Burn's wetwear reference. =D
