I went to use my gf's pc and its loaded with crap... im pretty vigilant about keeping things clean/update/running correctly... but allas, its impossible lol
 
most recently i noticed her search provider got changed, which is pretty common for people who next next finish their way through freeware (i guess T_T)
 
sooo i looked for extensions, addons, programs, searchbars... etc
 
and no dice.
 
i tried adw, avg, and mbam... still no luck
 
i also noticed at the bootom of the webpage it redirects to is some uninstall instructions... which are more than worthless, which actually suggests downloading a SECOND program to remove it... oh the poor saps that take advise from malware to dl more malware to get rid of the origional malware lol
 
anyone heard or have experience with this awesome little headache?
 
 
and thanks for being awesome :)
 
EDIT: and now add the junkware removal tool to the list of things that didnt work lol... /cry
