Hello all,

 

I made a download at a sight that I knew was questionable... yeah, I know better.  I don't know if this is only the toolbar or an infection.  I can't find it in Uninstall a program and doesn't show up in a search.  Could someone please inform me how to determine what this is and how to get rid of it.

 

Thanks,

 

Dan

 

Edit:  I downloaded and ran AdwCleaner, it's gone.

Hi Dan that's what I was going to say..

 

Also clean your Temp folder

 

Please download [url="http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/TFC.exe"]TFC[/url] (Temp File Cleaner) by Old Timer and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link

  • Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
  • Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
  • Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • TFC will clear out all temp folders for all user accounts (temp, IE temp, Java, FF, Opera, Chrome, Safari), including Administrator, All Users, LocalService, NetworkService, and any other accounts in the user folder.
  • Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.
Note: It is normal for the computer to be slow to boot after running TFC cleaner the first time.
