Within no time at all I get an icon on my desktop called 'install.exe' and nortons popups a security risk. I have been running these programs for 2 days now and I continue to get this frakking adware thing.
I have no clue what was going on when the original problem arose. I shall just say it involved a teenager on MY laptop, not on THEIR pc!!
I have tried to get to the symantec.com website but my browser (IE7) keeps getting hijacked and won't allow me to nav to the site.
I did get to it once and printed some info on removing the above mentioned problem but when I tried to open my registry, something kept immediately closing it. I start up in safe mode and then opened registry and all the entries weren't there that needed to be deleted. I started back up normally in Windows and boom-- Frakking adware.maxsearch
any help would be appreciated!!!
