Hello,

I recently accidentally installed Obrona on my computer (and i think a number of other things, but i am not exactly sure which), and have tried some of the typical malware removal software out there (including super anti spyware and malwarebytes) with no results. Any idea what i can do to get rid of all the pop ups? i am getting desperate : ( I am using Windows 7 if that helps.

Something to try -- They will add Search Bars. These can be removed in -- Start button -- control panel -- program and features -- click and uninstall if you don’t want them. --------------- For Internet Explorer -- at the top -- Tools -- Internet Options -- Advance Tab -- at the right bottom -- Reset -- click APPLY . ---------------------  Open Internet Explorer and in a clear place at the top right click -- new popup -- put a check mark for menu and also for any other bar you want. A check mark for menu allows your Favorites to show.  --  Next open Internet Explorer -- Tools Tab -- Manage Add on -- See if their is a need to disable some items here.

Can you actually try to remove it in control panel or will it deny you?

I removed it from the control panel successfully, but it was still creating pop ups so i tried using rkill, malwarebytes, and superantispyware then restored my computer to a restore point from a month ago. It seems to have fixed the problem, but are there any other steps i should take?

Well if you couldn't get rid of it via control panel i was going to suggest trying revo uninstall and using the force uninstall option but it seems like restore has fixed it. I would try scanning the system one more time just to make sure you are in the clear.
