Hi Ronbo625,

Like so many, they use a non intrusive advertisement trojan. In some cases it's impossible to get rid of unless you wipe the hard drive and reload the operating system. The reason for this is because when it activates it hides several others in file that most anti-viruses don't check. The other "sleepers" lie inactive (which is another reason anti-viruses don't pick up on them) until the active one is not working any longer or removed, then one or two become active, hiding several more. It's an exponential problem. Over the past couple of years I've had seen many laptops come through my shop with this problem and I've tried several different ways some get rid of them and their annoyance only to see them back within a week or so. The only sure way to get rid of them is to wipe the hard drive and reload the system, keep nothing.I'm sorry I know this isn't what you wanted to hear.
