So somehow the whitesmoke toolbar trojan got on my computer and now I am scared to use it. I keep looking for ways to remove it but when I press uninstall this box comes up with options but no text. Finding the tool bar isnt hard. I go to programs -> remove a program -> whitesmoke toolbar V2 -> uninstall/change and then a window from the program appeares with options to click but no text. Please help me by showing what the text is. This is Urgent and I am new here.

First thing .

NEVER run internet explorer .
Firefox is about 8 million times safer
So download it immediately and use it
[Chrome is theoretically safer again but is a pain in other ways ]


Next . Download and install the free version of AVAST
https://www.avast.com/en-nz/index
[ actually it should direct you to the US site ]
Install and when offered select the boot scan option .

Malwarebytes would be the next thing to do if that does not work

There's a couple of things you can do:

1. Download and install an application called "Malwarebytes".

2. Depending on what browser you run, you can disable add ons by going into the program settings.

What browser are you running?
