Hi, few years ago I downloaded some software and it came bundled with something. When I tried to uncheck the bundle part it wouldn't let me. So I tried to uninstall the software and it said it was uninstalled, but it wasn't. Because when I went into Google Chrome it started the Funmoods Search because that's what I tried to uninstall. I do not have internet on my Vista computer (using a friends wireless internet) so I am typing this on my crappy XP laptop. I don't want virus removal information I just want to know if it's just crappy software or Ad-ware. Because I searched up Funmoods and found only FunSmileys or something like that. I would greatly appreciate more information on Funmoods or if it was a one time Ad-ware thing only on my computer. Feedback will be greatly appreciated!
     Thank You!!!  :busy:

I prefer Linux. Windows 10 is just to invasive for me.

Holy crap! I spelled Funmoods wrong and that's why I got no results. This thing is a browser hijacker. Thanks for the reply!
