Last week I thought I was doing a genuine Java upgrade but I ended up with System optimiser that pops up on start up. I uninstalled it but it still comes up. I also have this V9 search engine that keeps coming up when I open a new tab and it keeps setting itself as my home page. I read up and followed some of the instructions to remove these. In all the articles I read they say to download some sort of removal tool. These don't work, one of them was caught by my antivirus as a threat and it would not let me download it. I tried to restore to an earlier time, that didn't work either.
Is there a way to fix this manually with out having to download a tool?
I'm ready to just do a clean install, getting very annoyed.
