Coulomb Dialer and instantsearch.cc

by tazmonger99 / April 15, 2005 8:33 AM PDT


New to the forums here, I am receiving pop-ups from instantsearch.cc on my new pc and can not figure out where they are coming from, adaware and spysubtract are not finding them. Now I have a coulomb dialer that has made a call on my phone bill! How do I find these and get rid of them?? Any help is appreciated, I am about a middle of the road pc savvy guy so keep it simple if possible! Happy Thanks!
