How do I delete swagbucks/swagbutton?

Posted

I have tried to get rid of this d**n thing repeatedly because it interferes with other stuff I have installed but it reappears every time I start FF. How do I get rid of it? I hate it and I want it gone. I don't even know how I got it and it doesn't show in my add-ons and I've even done a search of my pc but nothing shows up. I am so annoyed with this I am just about ready to uninstall FF just to be rid of it!

It’s very sad, but many software downloaders/ installers will trick you into installing not only their program, but other programs as well.

You have heard of the fine print in shady contracts, right? Well, some installers you need to look at the itsy bitsy teeny weeny fine print.

You are thinking you are giving the installer permission to install the program you want by using the recommended option. But if you use the Manual Option Instead, you discover all kinds of stuff that you do not even know what it is or what it does.

From now on, everyone needs to Use The Manual Option to put a stop to this.

Note that these programs can also change browser/computer settings.
