    Question

    So what did you do? I was able to remove it with malwarebytes, but it took Google with it. Making do with Bing. Not ready to buy a new computer with Windows7 right now. Strange no one else has posted.

    Default Argh...

    My computer's been cleaned/crashed/restored/crashed/reinstalled/crashed -dead for over a week now.... Got hubby's comp today - that's why no posting!! I had a mess of crap & it took 4 different applications to remove them, but after it was all clean I made the mistake of using System Mechanic to "clean it all up" and it has been wrecked ever since!! 6+ years of files/programs/pics (not backed up) are awaiting my ability to recover them...
