by butter / January 30, 2014 4:16 AM PST

Hello, I need help to remove this adware program from my Gateway Laptop computer.
I have ran Avira Antivirus Suite and Spy-bolt on my computer. This Malware is still there and driving me crazy.
Can someone tell how to get this out of my computer.
Thank You for Your Help.

Hi,

Download Adcleaner and follows these step:-

1. Close all open programs and internet browsers.
2. Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
3. Click on Clean.
4. Confirm each time with Ok.
5. Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
6. Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.
7. You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner\AdwCleaner[S0].txt as well.

Thanks
