So I accidentally installed that program while installing what I thought was Firefox while in a rush. Immediately knowing this wasn't I installed, I used Revo Uninstaller to get rid of the program, including registry keys belonging to it. I ran rkill to make sure it wasn't hiding; used adwcleaner and it deleted scheduled tasks, etc. Then after reboot, I checked again with adwcleaner and apparently my system is clean. Over all, nothing was disabled or anything typical of Extended Update. Was I safe by removing it via Revo Uninstaller? It still shows up if I type it in the search for Revo Uninstaller, but it says that there's no leftovers or something along those lines.
First day of wiping my computer clean and I'm just here shaking my head. Ugh.
- Am currently running ESET online scanner and it has picked up, so far: 3 instances of Win32/Bundled.Toolbar.Google.D and a Win32/InstallCore.AEO. Will update once it's done.
- False alarm with that; turned out it was detecting ccleaner as that, apparently. I'll still double check but in the meantime, could anyone provide an opinion or actual instructions to see if Extended Update really is gone from my computer?
- Update: It seems adwcleaner doesn't pick up whatever it is that ESET picks up. I'll try my Malwarebytes for now. Until then, hope there's a solution for the google toolbar thing. However, the install core has still been detected by Malwarebytes.
