Because I clicked on some stupid link of Facebook I inadvertently downloaded this.

Arcadefrontier causes pop-ups and creates links on a few words which take you to another advertising site. Like wikipedia except annoying and not useful.

 

The problem I have is that I am finding it impossible to get rid of.

 

1. I have gone to the "uninstall a program" part on the control panel to try and uninstall it. But it doesn't show up. I clicked on the "Installed on" column to look at any programs I installed on the day that might be causing the issue but there were none.

 

2. The uninstaller on the Arcadefrontier website doesn't work.

 

3. Adblocker doesn't work

 

4. Disabling adsoftware on my browser doesn't work

 

Any ideas?
