  1. I have this pesky Rockettab adware that infected both of my browsers Chrome and Firefox. I tried looking for it in the add and remove programs manager in the control panel but I didn't see either program. I'm currently checking my registry for any leads. Does anybody know what I can do to remove this? This adware is killing me.
  2. Hello, My mother-in-law has a nasty adware virus on her laptop called Offers4U. I have uninstalled all non-essential programs, uninstalled all Chrome Extensions, run PC Matic a dozen times, and even completely uninstalled and re-installed Google Chrome. Nothing seems to work and there is very little support for this online. I have made their laptop functional by finally installing adblock and popup block extensions for Chrome. This is working, but it is just a bandaid. I need this removed - any support is appreciated. PS - Why doesn't PC Matic remove this? Thanks
  3. My Dell laptop (windows 7 firefox) has been infected by the adware Enformation/Enterprise 1.1 for going on 8 months now. It feels like I have done everything I could in attempt to remove this adware but to no avail. I have run the PC Matic twice as well, but it did not seem to resolve the issue. Does anyone know how to PERMANENTLY remove this adware from both my harddrive and my firefox adons? I have tried uninstalling it from my control panel as well as simply disabling it from my adons, along with following the steps from various websites, but nothing seems to be working. Any help would
  4. I am reviewing PC Matic to see if I can get rid of an adware / malware virus that resides on my PC. It has hijacked my IE and FF browsers - and when I click links, click into a blank field to add data, etc., etc. anywhere from 1 to 2 new browser windows automatically pop up with ads of some product - mostly PC software to remove viruses, optimize my PC, etc. (PC Keeper, for example). Their are other ads that pop up as well - they look to be legit. I currently use Webroot as my virus software - they spent about 2 hours trying to eradicate all occurrences of 'video+ mediaplayer+' virus fr
  5. I picked up an infection with the wedownload manager and I cannot get it to uninstall. When I try, I get a message that I do not have sufficient access to uninstall wedownload manager and to contact the system administrator. I also get a message that super shield block the wedownload manager file from running. And suggestions on how to get rid of this annoying program? My operating system is Windows 7. Thanks.
  6. Hi i have recently discovered adware on my laptop which to my reaction, i wasn't really bothered but i decided to install Adw Cleaner which i was directed to from a website, yes the program works well and removed most of the adware but it has detected more adware (not sure if it is a file or what) and cannot seem to remove it, the program says it has removed it and restarts but then detects the same object again upon another scan the location of the object detected is - C:UsersRichard App DatalocalGoogleChromeuser DataDefaultpreferences I have looked up this location manually and delet
  7. Hi, a few days ago my web browser started to run very slowly, using up almost 50% of my CPU most of the time. There is also some sort of redirect malware on my computer as sometimes I get sent to random links whenever I use a search engine. I'll post my log here.

  9. Someone used my computer and installed a Korean media player "Gom Player" and now my Internet Explorer homepage is set to Daum.net and can't be changed. Once the homepage is changed in settings (or asked to be blank), and applied, there is no effect, and I'm looking the Daum homepage still. The Gom Player program has been uninstalled, but they must have packaged it with a bunch of insidious BS. I only even use IE because the Korean government forces people to use that browser for online banking, in addition to being forced to install a bunch of "safety" programs ("Keysecure" anyone?) in ord
