Hi,

Yesterday morning I went to ebay with no problems, later in the afternoon I went back and an ad bar popped up at the bottom of the screen said powered by Offers4u.

 

I had not installed any programs, so I dont know where it came from.

 

In add remove programs there was a program listed I had not seen before and a folder ssavaenshAre  I removed them but the bar was still in my browser.

 

I found this site after a search on google, answered by nasdaq that said to download adwcleaner and junkware removal tool. I ran these and deleted all they found, and rebooted when required. But the bar is still in my browser :(

 

Any help with this problem?

 

Thank you

 Bob

Looks like I found the problem. Strange the programs I tried did not find it..

 

It looks like it was an extension I cant remember adding it.. so I dissabled it

and the bar has now gone.

 

To help anyone else the extension was called 

SaveFrom.net helper

Some apps piggy back and install items like add ons and toolbars.. When installing don't use the "recommended " but rather the "custom" install and there you can see and uncheck the bundled ware.
