I have been infected by Search Protection by Spigot, Inc. and cannot remove the program.


I have Windows 7 and attempted removal in the "Uninstall or change a program" module but I receive an error "NSIS Error" with a message "Error launching installer."


I currently have no symptoms (slow computer, hijacking, changing search engines, etc.) that I notice. A few days ago, I did have my default search engine switched to Yahoo in Firefox, and earlier today noticed the Lucky Leap Add-In, but I deleted the Yahoo search engine and the Lucky Leap Add-In. Additionally, I uninstalled Lucky Leap from the "Uninstall" module in Windows 7.


I know there are probably some things left behind.


Please let me know what you think I should do.


Best regards!
