My laptop is infected with TubeHelper malware. It got installed as a BHO when installing Dream mkv converter I downloaded from CNET (I guess shame on me for taking defaults blindly during installation just because I implicitly trusted the s/w downloaded from CNET.)

 

Now - I can not use YouTube anymore - videos don't play. This BHO pushes R Rated ads. Mouse over hyperlinks on legit webpages result in popup-type windows with ads. Logging onto any corporate website results in a popup window promoting deals specially designed for that company. This is what I noticed in just a few minutes. There may be more invisible (an more sinister) stuff going on.

 

This shows up as a BHO in IE, but can not disable it because it disables the disable option.

 

Surprisingly, I don't find much info when I google "TubeHelper" or "Tube Helper".

 

Help please!!

 

Running Windows 7 current on all updates.
