Hi

 

Whenever i search for any topic online I get this annoying side bar popping up called RelopiX which gives me a list of 'related searches'. It's annoying and I'm worried my computer is infected.

 

I've gone to unistall it through control panel > programs, but it doesn't actually come up at all in the list of programs.

 

Any advice on how to get rid of RelopiX would be appreciated - it's driving me bananas.

1. Start > Control Pannel > Uninstall a Program

2. Scroll through the list and look for: RelopiXYontooLyricXeeker,Plus-HD 1.3LyricsGetBetterSurfDownloadkepperSurfEnchanceFeven 1.7LyricsWoofer,LyricsFanSimpleLyrics. Also look for any other unwanted programs.

May I ask what browser you are using?


I don't always use Internet Explorer, but when I do, it's to download a different browser.

I just tried - and didn't work :-( The only program I found from the list is Yontoo 1.10.02. when I click uninstall, windows asks for my permission to continue, but when i click yes i get an error message saying: setup initialization error.

Hi Farrah2

 

 

Please download and use the following tools (in the order listed) which will search for and remove many potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), adware, toolbars, browser hijackers, extensions, add-ons and other junkware as well as related registry entries (values, keys) and remnants.

RKill created by Grinler (aka Lawrence Abrams), the site owner of BleepingComputer.
AdwCleaner created by Xplode.
Junkware Removal Tool created by thisisu.

1. Double-click on RKill to launch the tool. A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.

Important: Do not reboot your computer until you complete the next step.

2. Double-click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.

Click on the Scan button.

  • AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.

After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R0].txt) will open in Notepad for review.

After reviewing the log, click on the Clean button.

Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.

Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.

After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S0].txt) will open automatically.

  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.

-- Note: The contents of the AdwCleaner log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name that you recognize and know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, return to AdwCleaner before cleaning...all detected items will be listed (and checked) in each tab. Click on each one and uncheck any items you want to keep (except you cannot uncheck Chrome and Firefox preferences lines).


Close all open programs and shut down any protection/security software to avoid potential conflicts.
If you do not know how to do this you can find out >here< or >here<
 
3. Double-click on
 JRT.exe to run the tool.
Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.

  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.

On completion, a log file named JRT.txt will automatically open and be saved to your Desktop.

  • Copy and paste the contents of JRT.txt in your next reply.
