a) new laptop from HP with Windows 7 professional
b) removed mysearchdial from programs the first time, but it no longer shows up in programs, despite showing up in when I go online on (Google is my preferred search engine; do not intentionally use others); now have AVG search in addition to mysearchdial and IE...
c) unable to locate mysearchdial on extensions etc
d) regarding solitaire, found "games" but all I found turned out to be links. treecardgames was what I used initially and first noted mycsearchdial... but there may not be any connection
and finally, my apologies for delay in responding... for some reason I was unable to sign into CNET earlier.
I keep getting extra search engines and Potentially Unwanted Programs. I can accept the adware tracking from Chrome, but do not want mydial, AVG etc that have started being added. I suspect it comes from downloading a solitaire program (now that MS doesn't seem to include them). Any ideas (other than Malwarebytes and Superspyware (and not downloading solitaire, of course)?
