    Default Beware of deceptive download links

    Third party software is often bundled with software from download sites easily found on the net.

    Check out this useful and informative article by Anand Khanse:

    Note his list of "safe sites' may change.

    If you have such unwanted third party software installed and it resists being removed by conventional methods you can start a topic in the Malware Removal Forum where a volunteer analyst will advise and guide.

    First see that forum's FAQ which also includes instructions in post #2 on how to provide the logs from Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and aswMBR, which are the logs used in the preliminary analysis.
