    have to agree with Dexter. its not a software tool it is a virus.

    here is a link on how to remove it. just follow that steps further down the page and do not download any of the software that is recommended. some them work some not. always best to do it manually

    Otherwise, destroy windows completely and install Ubuntu or Linux Mint. Will take you about a month of regular use to get used to it , but at least you wont have virus issues again :thumbup:

    If I read the threads on the Internet it looks like you might have a battle on hand getting rid of it. Just a friendly reminder.....DONT DOWNLOAD THE TOOLS (VIRUS REMOVAL TOOLS) the websites give. They will cause more headaches than solutions.

    I have McAffee, but it didn't detect it. I had to delete chrome, seems to be gone.
    I was a queen with a broken heel. Still one programme running, the "snap on" ^%6$!! Going to send it to @GTH's work, their techs must sort it, I COULDN'T be asked! (gay term, if you didn't get it!)

    :lol:

    Thanks Dean for the info!!!
