There seems to be some adware on one of our computers. We get pop-up ads saying "Brought to you by Surf SideKick" and we also get an ad for WinFixer. Whether you click OK, Cancel, or close the dialog box, it takes you to a site to start downloading and you have to click the "Back" button. I went to the Surf SideKick website and followed their instructions about going to the Control Panel and clicking Add/Remove Programs but I couldn't seem to find the Surf SideKick program on our list of programs.
Does anyone have any suggestions for what I can do?
And - on a different note - some of you may find this amusing, but is there any chance of finding out the physical location of the people who run the Surf SideKick website? You see, I emailed them saying I would be charging them $10 for each ad. I also tried that trick with the WinFixer people.
