How do I get rid of Price Peep? It is not available to uninstall with "Remove Programs".

Posted

Somehow Price Peep got on my computer. I have searched my computer for "Price" and "Peep" and deleted any remnants of "Price Peep", but it doesn't go away. I think that it may be attached to Mozilla Firefox somehow.

With all due respect, telling Firefox to "disable" the program is a half-step. I just set up a new Sony Laptop running Win 7 and after the endless, moronic, overload of updates and mandates, reboots, etc., Price Peep showed up. CONTRARY TO POSTS ABOVE, IT DOES SHOW UP IN CONTROL PANEL UNINSTALL PROGRAMS in Win. But, it forces you to go to a Web site and click on your reasons for uninstalling, then answer the question box explaining why you want to delete the program. And despite the thin attempts to deny posted by Mozilla, it appears to install with Firefox, very possibly as a source of advertisement revenue. When done with that nonsense, download and run CCleaner, twice. Further, you MUST have a good antivirus program installed anyway - but it will not stop ad-ons from running, because it does not look like nor act like a virus. Thanks to Price Peep and MS endless installation, I will never, ever by another PC: Apple is it the next time, so long, good bye, MS, along with all the PC problems.
