OK, I got rid of the dropdown coupon highjacker. But, haven't found out how I can get rid of the Tidy Networks adware that is driving me up a wall.

 

It pops up windows from time to time on no logical basis that I can determine with the brag line "This advert brought to you by Tidy Networks" There's a lie for a start as their adware is making a mess of my browsing. Their adware also parses web pages and highlights key words in various colours - when moused over these pop up adverts in small boxes - usually on topics that have bupkes to do with the keyword. It's rude not to mention slowing things down horribly.

 

I have scanned using Malwarebytes, Ad-Aware, Sophos, Super Anti Spyware, ADWcleaner, and Hosts_Anti_Adwares_PUPs\HOSTS_Anti-Adware.exe both from a bare (everything mostly closed) windows screen and from safe mode ... all of which got rid of a lot of stuff I was clueless to the existence of.

 

But I still am afflicted by this damnable TIDY NETWORKS crap. And I really, really, really, don't want to go over to the dark side and Windows Exploder.

 

HELP!!! Please

AAAAACCCCKKKKK!!! As I was reading my original plea several words changed colour and gained either a single or double underscore. These included "start", "web pages", "Male", "Malwarebytes:, and "Windows"
