Now, I know this had to have been installed when I installed something else; I just can't think what it might have been, because I don't often download programs. I honestly don't think I have downloaded any new programs in the past three months or so, so I have no clue where this came from. But that's beside the point. I figured I would just go through Add/Remove Programs, figure out the culprit, and uninstall it.
That didn't work.
Then I Googled "easylifeapp removal". No luck. There were plenty of hits, but nothing that worked for me.
So I decided, the hell with it, I'll just format the hard drive. I have everything backed up anyhow, so I won't lose anything. That way, I'll be sure to get rid of this crap once and for all.
I spent a good couple hours formatting (or resetting or whatever the hell they call it now) and it still didn't work. It doesn't even seem like the hard drive was even fomatted. I mean, yes, my programs and stuff were gone, but when I downloaded Chrome (directly from Google) and ran it.....up came the easylifeapp search page. And now, my machine runs even slower than it did before I formatted it!
This was my first time doing a clean re-install of Windows 8. I have no idea if I did something wrong, or what. All I know is that what I did last night seems to have been a complete waste of time.
Does anyone have any ideas?
