180search Assistant

by xpurple_starsx / July 22, 2005 5:12 AM PDT

Somehow a program called 180search Assistant has gotten into my computer. This is slowing my system down and causing loads of other programs to be downloaded from the internet. I remove them but they just come back again. I tried to uninstall 180search but after I said I definitely wanted to uninstall, a blue bar came up (like the top of an explorer window but with no writing). This bar doesn't go away and the program remains. Can anyone help me?

I'm running Windows XP Pro if that helps.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
