Do a malware check with several malware scanning programs on the Windows computer. Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware. All these programs have free versions.

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.

Where does this crop up. Is it an extra tab, unwanted popup window, cookie, unresponsive script, etc.?

Hi coolcollins, is it a coincidence that you always post links to pages promoting SpyHunter and RegCurePro? It's starting to look like you're spamming for those companies.
