Download and save and then install the free version of

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.70.0.1100

SUPERAntiSpyware 5.6.0.1014

Make sure to update their definition files during the install process.

Make sure to uncheck and decline to install any extras, such as toolbars and homepages, they may offer.

Make sure to uncheck and decline to use the "Pro" or "Trial" version, if it's offered.

After they're installed and updated, restart the computer.

Run a QUICK scan with each of them.

When each scan is finished, select and remove EVERYTHING they found.

Restart the computer, if prompted to, so the removal process can finish.

Note: DON'T use the computer while each scan is in progress.

If you take the time to read each window carefully during an install process, there usually is an option to decline or opt out to install toolbars, search engines, homepages, scanners, etc..

If the option isn't there and you know you don't want to install that "garbage", cancel the install.

thanks but this didnt solve my problem

unfortunately this was an mp3 u cant buy on cd and i really wanted it so getting the "optional" extras was unavoidable, but i didnt know i would have such trouble removing them afterwards...........im now thinking about a full system restore, unless i get any more advice on how to solve my problem ;-)

Okay, good.

I was going to have you put AdwCleaner to use next.

It finds and removes "nasties" that the other 2 don't.
