    I havent tried malwarebytes but good thing jassi mentioned it. There are really extensions that we can't notice sometimes so it's better to check once in a while :)

    Thanks a lot; I totally forgot that malwarebytes is so powerful and efficient in scanning through the whole system.
    It found more ads that were nestled in other folders which manually were - almost - impossible to detect in the Registry, and Microsoft Security Essentials did in fact not find them.
    So happy for this :clap: :clap: :clap:

    I owe u many :worthy::worthy::worthy::worthy::worthy::worthy::worthy:

    [now I keep an extra folder dedicated only for mbm on desktop]

    Very interesting site that fully covers the topic with the annoying attack of adware; malwarebytes did its efficient work.
    Specic help is given in the forum when "infestations" like adware have been undetected by other security scans and thus passed as legal [but still are left as evil remnants in hd] in computer, by submitting that to the forum staff.

    Thanks for this helpful information :)
    Now it's :surfing: again, but cautious.
