    Default How to get rid of toolbar/pop-ups?

    So I'm trying to delete crap on my computer and I come across this on my C drive:



    I have no idea wtf is it and i click on the webpage (install)
    and then all of a sudden it frickin installs some gay toolbar (I-lookup.com bar)
    BTW: Both files named install I have never seen before, they are probably the same thing?



    Now I get fucked up pop ups and ads to block pop ups for porn and virus crap.

    Any idea how I can uninstall this toolbar or something

    Thanks.

    If you switch to using FireFox for your browser you'll find you have less problems with popups and sneaky ad-software (if any).

    Try Spybot search and destroy for adware.. and to prevent popups, also try the google toolbar.

    go into your control panel and then the add/remove software icon.
    Now look and see if there is any programs like I-lookup or such, and delete them. This might work. If not, do a search for I-lookup files and maybe you can pinpoint where it is stored.

    it might be something from the sasser worm. i know my other comp gets those msgs, and it does have the saasser.

    ctrl+alt+delete
    processes
    then end AVSERVE.EXE
    and AVSERVE2.EXE

    might help a bit?

    if u find a solution, email me at [email protected]
