One of my computers started having ads popping up on the sides of web pages.  No one seems to know when it started or what they did.  I noticed that there was some kind of "key" browser adding and removed that but then noticed one called LyricsSing.  I was able to remove it from Chrome but IE will not let me disable it.  I assume it is causing the issue but I'm not sure.  How should I proceed?

Yes.  She had her computer stolen so I figured the problem was gone but when they got a new computer, they immediately got it infected again!  I really need to figure out what she is doing and how to keep her from re-infecting her computer.  I've opened a new thread here. It seems like similar stuff.  I'm seeing Conduit Search Bar again at least.
