Hello.  I have been reading this log http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/493491/supreme-savings-extension/
in hopes of resolving a similar issue. 

I ended up with a triple whammy: Optimizer Pro, Default Tab and Supreme Savings on my Lenovo ThinkPad running Windows 7 and Chrome. I didn't even realize the two Chrome extensions existed and thought my issues were stemming solely from the Optimizer Pro, which showed up as a desktop icon out of the blue. Before reading the above thread, I had already attempted to uninstall Optimizer Pro which was "successful" except for the message indicating that some items would have to be removed manually.  :orange: 

For the record, AVG (free version) was current and running, but I strongly suspect the problems came in when my teenager uninstalled iTunes and attempted to download a new version. I should have been paying closer attention. Grrr!

So, since the uninstall, Optimizer Pro no longer shows up in Programs, but I don't know how to determine if there are residual elements lurking about. Not seeing any problems that appear related (no random PC Optimizing-type windows or the like).

I have also disabled "Default Tab."

But, "Supreme Savings" does not give me the option to disable or delete.


Thanks for your help.

The Malware Bytes Rootkin Scan....

....indicated "No Malware Found" but I was not able to find the logs requested. I have something called a "system log" in the mbar folder which, when open, is nothing but random characters. I do not have Word, only Open Office, so I'm not sure if this is the issue.  

I do not see and mbar log at all.

Completed remaining steps last night. 

Temp File Cleaner ran w/out freezing.

Chrome and IE reset (and, it appears restored) without issue.

Was not able to update IE - Had one important update, but error message (sorry...will have to try it again if you need that, as I forgot to write it down) was not among the specific errors listed in Fix It Report, and the general troubleshooting fix claimed to work but did eliminate the problem. 

I....think I forgot to try to update Chrome. Oops. 

I deleted all unwanted/unused extensions in Chrome's settings.
Deleted AVG Safe Search and Toolbar which act so much like Malware that they ought to be called that.
And deleted Sendori which had appeared in the past 3-4 days.  :nono:



Hope that covered everything. Got some very distressing news right as I was wrapping up the process and had a bit of difficulty making sure I had covered all the bases. 


I still have AVG as the only anti-virus program running on this machine.

OH...Firefox. Haven't downloaded it onto this machine, so nothing to do there.

Erm....no. Strike that. Looks like Malware Bytes is here as well (makes sense), I just didn't see a desktop/taskbar icon for it so thought maybe it hadn't stuck around.

You did the scan but you need to do the removal

My recollection of the removal is a little fuzzy now, but I definitely did it. As I recall, I clicked "delete" once but was not prompted to do so repeatedly, the computer rebooted, and that was it.

I can run it again if that's best.

Oh, and since I haven't said so up to now....THANK YOU for working with me!

Sure seems to be solved!   :bananas: No more unwanted ads, Super Saver extension is gone, Sendori and AVG Toolbar & Safe Search are gone (giving myself a little pat on the back for those two). 

My only remaining concern is in having Malwarebytes and AVG running on the same machine. Isn't that bad form?

Incidentally, is there any way to figure out how this garbage found us in the first place? Is that answer buried in all those logs somewhere?

You can uninstall Malwarebytes now!

Maybe you clicked on an advertisement saying to update flash/download something from a non recommended website by using a software like limewire or utorrent.


Is that answer buried in all those logs somewhere? No.
