I started having random ads appearing in IE a couple of weeks ago.  The McAfee scan says all clear, but there is an IE add-on called 'Browsseo22ssaave' that I am not able to disable through IE.  I have read this is adware but there is not much info on the web about this virus.

 

I also ran a HiJack This scan and there is a registry entry with the same name that refuses to be deleted.  I ended up finding the directory with the same name and deleting it.  I am not sure yet if this has fixed the problem as the add-on still appears in the add-on manager. This is a brand new Acer laptop running Windows 8 (yuck).

I did as listed above but the add-on manager still reflects the Browsseo22ssaavvee add-on which still can't be disabled.  The pop up problem seems to have stopped though (at least so far).

And thanks for your help.  Can you leave post open for a few days so I can see if it's fixed.
