    optispeed - keeps trying to install - not intentionally downloaded?


    Hello.
    Something called optispeed keeps trying to d/l itself onto my pc.
    The only thing I have recently d/l has been mwb3 which has installed perfectly and is working fine.

    I suspect optispeed was attached when viewing another site and was part of an advertisement.

    That all being true I intend to delete it unless it is something to do with mwb3?

    Thanks

    Its a computer optimising software programme.....
    Look in Task Manager to see if its running, if so terminate.
    Then disconnect Router, restart router, restart computer to see if terminated.
