    Who uses toolbars anyway?
    I thought toolbars were more surfing 'social butterflies' and, more or less, a thing of the past.
    I don't. The stupid things just sit there taking up valuable real estate.

    Yes, sort of. Sometimes it doesn't always work, but later on, it may . . . First try didn't work on sear.ch, but later on, MB took the rest of it out.

    True.. but it's something.. I hate this stuff.. but you just have to be very careful what you download and where you get anything from today.

    You be preaching to da choir, Jeff! I still haven't a clue as to how that thing got on Windows 8.1, but it's gone now.

    I've never been able to get programs like Malawarebytes to work for me. It never gets everything out. I tend to just dig into the system and clean it out myself.

    It does work.. just not all of the time. Some of the junk does get in there really good and it takes work to get it out,

    Damn those PUPs. Most of the comps I get to fix are loaded with the sods. MindSpark - aaaarrrrggghhh!!!

    Can get 5-600 entries detected by MBAM.

    Pays to run ADWCleaner as well. It can get a few missed by MBAM.

    It really is a depressing side to computing.

    I just re-install the OS! Been doing it every day lately, sometimes twice a day!
