When downloading MP3Rocket that captures YouTube music, I Unchecked all the downloads it wanted to do. But it loaded Vosteran browser hijacker.
I can't tell whether I have 32 or 64 bit from the instructions here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/32-bit-or-64-bit-windows/
(No menu called "Computer" -- have My Computer.) Right click Properties doesn't open the Control Panel. Whether right-click My Computer or C, or looking in the Control Panel, it gives same screen but no tab for "System Type". It does not list any bit type under Computer info System Properties screen. (If I recall correctly, the bit info is in one of the Advanced areas of one of the Tabs on System Properties--but I don't remember which Tab or which Advanced button.) ( I *think* its a 64 bit??) I don't know which version of the tool to download.
Systemax (old laptop)
WinXPro2002 SP 3
Chrome - nothing added there... just my regular 3 addons
AVGFree - shows nothing
old Frontpage2000 now shown as associated with Vosteran browser AND Chrome-- need this fixed. Changing Associations under Properties did not help.
I made Vosteran stop loading concurrent with Chrome.
I reset browser to load only to Google.
No symptoms of this garbage Vosteran BUT I know pieces of it are still present.
It also shows under Start>All Programs as still in my system.
I had already run AdwCleaner by xPlode. But I only had it remove what I could figure out was safest to do. I'm attaching the log that shows what was AND was NOT deleted through AdwCleaner. I need to know what else in this log is safe to delete, please? And, HOW to do it safely?
