I accidentally downloaded Internet Helper 3.1 toolbar, trying to download iobit uninstaller to uninstall norton. I hit an ad by accident and downloaded it along with "default tab" "free download manage 3.8" "my pc backup" "pc health kit v 3.2" and "search protect by conduit." I restored the computer to a previous date and it seemed to get rid of the others except for "default tab" and "internet helper 3.1 toolbar"
I installed iobit uninstaller and uninstalled both the default tab and internet helper 3.1 but after i restarted the computer, the int helper toolbar was still there. i then uninstalled firefox.
I googled and it's a nasty virus. I used iobit to uninstall, only i didn't realize i was using the programs's uninstaller. I never used iobit's registry clean feature. And now I don't know what to do because it is not showing in my programs and files folder on control panel.
Being that this is a virus, i'm assuming my problem is not gone.
This is a brand new computer and I fear I've already caused problems. Kaspersky isn't picking anything up, probably because I allowed the download to happen, when I thought I was downloading iobit.
I am not very computer savvy. Any help would be appreciated!
I am on Windows 8.
