    Hello tangle,

    The easiest way to scan for and remove this would probably be to use Spybot S&D or Ad-Aware. However, I'm wondering if you've tried one of these already and that is how you know that you need to clean it?

    Can you tell us how you know you have this and need to clean it off? If you haven't used either tool above yet, that grab a download and scan your system with it.

    Hope this helps,
    LowWaterMark

    Hi Tangle,

    Welcome to Wilders!

    In addition to the suggestions LWM offered, I would also suggest that you download and run HijackThis from

    http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/hijackthis.zip

    and scan the system but do *not* try to fix anything yet as many of the items listed are necessary, instead press the "save log" button and copy and paste the log here for someone to review and advise on.

    I would recommend that you run one or both of the other programs before HijackThis as that will narrow down the number of things to look at in the log :)

    Regards,

    Dan
